Training Content and Pedagogical Approach

We will determine in each case the required methodological approaches needed with respect to how to teach, and meet the needs of librarians and library staff. Each partner will design bespoke training programs to best meet their target market (i.e. University library staff, academic staff, students & student teachers, policy makers, public librarians) enabling flexible and responsive solutions that stem from an agreed set of principles and enabling all areas of libraries to be addressed. The pedagogical approach will stress communicative, learner-centered and a soft skills teaching approach
