So why should library staff get involved?
Library staff in Higher Education (HE) are actively involved in teaching, both formally and informally. Although our institutions are constantly striving to support our professional development, the diversity of the roles we perform and our unique role as ‘third space’ professionals means we are dealing with complex, complicated and evolving needs.
“A practical ‘product’ that can be implemented to enhance professional development.”
“It’s fun, interesting and creative!”
“I hope we will leave a legacy of openness around librarians who teach. And confer some legitimacy on the reality of what we are doing.”
“The framework can be viewed as a faceted lens that provides the possibility of considering Personal Development from an integrated and holistic perspective.”
“L2L will foster collaborative partnerships with academic colleagues and will help to create a community of practice for library educators to share values, ideas and expertise.”
“The professional development scheme helps librarians who work in Higher Education institutions by allowing them to network and update themselves on the latest research and best practice in teaching.”
“L2L is a great example of people with different areas of expertise sharing their knowledge and passion with others.”
