ONWARD AND UPWARDS

I passed my Teaching Artist module! Big relief.

However, I’m not finished yet.  Now I must think about the project.  Friends, if you know of a music library – anywhere *In The World* – where their user education is excellent and firmly grounded on good pedagogical principles – please let me know.  I need examples of good practice – not just ‘fun stuff’, but sessions where goals, methodology and outcomes are thoroughly thought through.  Preferably in the context of a music library!

Self-Assessment of my Online Discussion

Online Discussion Assessment Karen McAulay (pdf file)

We’ve all posted our lesson plans, our theoretical account, and our context setting study.  We’ve invited one another to comment on these and suggest improvements, and now we have to complete a self-assessment of our online discussion.  I completed the form and saved it as a pdf, and there’s a link to it above.  I tried to complete it honestly – I don’t think my contributions were brilliant, though I endeavoured to be lucid and constructive.

However, I’d like to think that I also added extra value with the occasional links that I shared with my classmates.  As a librarian, I’m very proactive in highlighting useful links and helpful e-resources with our teaching and learning community.  I’ve tried to demonstrate that in the collaborative space too, because I feel that this to some extent compensates for what I lack in traditional teaching experience.  Sharing and facilitating the exploitation of information is what I do naturally.
