Gaming In the Library? Training Course for Scottish HE Librarians



Why not start the year off with some interesting training? Following November's SALCTG Plenary, we decided to run a library training session early in the new year. The training prioritisation activity following the plenary discussion highlighted gamification as a possible topic, so we have organised for Andrew Walsh from University of Huddersfield http://innovativelibraries.org.uk/ to run a similar workshop to the one advertised the other day on lis-link.

We are able to hold the workshop at Glasgow Caledonian University's CPD Centre on Friday the 6th of March. It will be an all-day session, likely to run between 9.30-4.30 and will only cost £45 to SALCTG members. We can hold a larger group for this session - please feel free to request more than one space at the workshop. Payment for this workshop will be through our online shop http://store.gcu.ac.uk/browse/extra_info.asp?compid=1&modid=1&deptid=14&catid=26&prodid=159

This is some of the feedback Andrew Walsh provided for the May sessions:-

“I found the day exceptionally useful and well done. I was really impressed by how well Andrew Walsh incorporated theory and background into a primarily hands-on training. I got quite a few tips for teaching and engaging students through play that were totally new for me and I believe that certain aspects of what he taught will stick with me, particularly the caveats and pitfalls for developing games in university contexts.”
Quote from attendee at a previous workshop.
