15.30 - 16.00WHELF Learning and Teaching Group - Information Literacy: Why do we bother?

- This presentation will discuss the evolution of the newly rebranded UWTSD Library and Learning Resources InfoSkills programme, emphasising the development of transferrable skills and their impact on student retention and future employability. We will outline the approach we’ve taken to digital and information literacy in our restructured service, including the implementation of our marketing strategy and innovative teaching and delivery methods and engagement with stakeholders across a diverse spectrum of learners. We will address the elephant in the room; why do we do all this and how do we prove that it makes an impact on academic success, student wellbeing and employability?
