  Course description

In this Continuing Education Course participants will have the opportunity to examine four aspects of teaching and learning through practical learning methods. Different methods of active learning will be explored and demonstrated in the session (e.g. class discussion and learning by teaching). These elements will be combined within an overall jigsaw method of learning. Participants will be able to explore active “learning by doing” methods (adapting these to their own teaching situations) whilst engaging within the bigger picture of educational theory. The course will provide an opportunity for exploration of the relationship between theory and methods allowing participants to identify how they can adapt such methods and use them within their day-to-day information literacy teaching practise. All participants will be expected to read and digest either two short journal articles or a book chapter before the session
