Within days of the launch of the Cambridge Information Literacy Network, the Project Team was positively gleeful to learn that we had been successful in a bid made to the University of Cambridge’s Teaching and Learning Innovation Fund.
The fund is designed to “assist with implementing innovative practice in any area of learning and teaching provision“, focusing on those adopting new approaches or initiatives to enhance teaching and learning.
The funding will be used to support the development of one of the strands of the project: the creation and implementation of a pre-arrival online resource for Masters’ students across all disciplines, focusing on skills and practices related to information literacy as well as some transferable academic skills such as time management. The funding will have an influence on the technologies chosen for this resource, as well as supporting the part-time secondment of Helen Murphy from the English Faculty Library to the project.
More information about this coming very soon…
