December SALCTG course - Book Now!

Managing Student Behaviour

Friday 2nd December 2011
NLS Causewayside, Edinburgh
Cost:  £50 (SALCTG members) or £60 (non-members)

As library and learning spaces evolve to include cafes, social and collaborative spaces, is it still necessary to set boundaries for student behaviour? How can we address potential problems in a positive way and ensure the library is still an appropriate place for learning?
This 1 day workshop led by Ash Charlton will provide techniques for managing potentially disruptive behaviour, dealing with difficult situations and resolving conflict.  Always a very popular course leader, Ash’s workshop will be of use to all members of the library team.

Bookings to: Dawn Lindsay (
