Training content and Pedagogical Approach

Information about methodological approaches.

We determined 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 designed relevant training programmes to best meet their target market and stakeholders enabling flexible and responsive solutions that derive from an agreed set of principles and enabling all areas of libraries to be addressed. Finally – it should be noted that the pedagogical approach focused on a communicative and skills teaching approach.
