ARC-NWC Skillshare Event. Designing for Learning: Developing your teaching practice for Library and Information Professionals

26th May @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Are you a library or information professional who is expected to design and deliver educational talks or workshops to adult library users, but you have never been taught how best to do so? Are you worried that your participants will be unmotivated or confused during your library training sessions? Do you sometimes feel like an imposter? Or are you feeling bored with delivering the same material?

Join Tanya Williamson to learn about ways to focus on designing for learning. This will be a supportive session, where you can safely voice your concerns and ideas. Tanya will share some ‘teaching and learning essentials and some practical tips that have worked in her own teaching practice. Email Tanya in advance if there is a particular teaching and learning issue you would like to address: The session will include time for sharing your own best practice. Book at
