Back in the summer, many CILIP Information Literacy Group committee members took part in the one day IL executive briefing. All the presentations are available on the CILIP website. The introduction by the CILIP ILG Chair, Debbi Boden-Angell, can be accessed directly via CILIP IL Briefing.

A Sheffield iSchool Centre for Information Literacy Research event.
There is a Librarian “TeachMeet” (idea from http://latnetwork.spruz.com/) in Huddersfield on 9th Feb 2011. This will be a really informal opportunity for librarians who teach to get together to share tips and experiences.
If you come, be prepared to give a short (5 min at most) talk to share an aspect of your teaching. There will be “speed dating” to share tips and a lucky dip of teaching goodies to rummage through for inspiration.
The free event will be held at the University of Huddersfield from 14:00 to 16:30 on Wednesday 9th Feb. More details will appear on http://hudteachmeet.blogspot.com/ and http://bit.ly/eN32GF as they decide them.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> if you’d like to attend. Places are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
