There was an interesting article in today’s Guardian ‘Taken as read’ about the use of living books by Dorset library service. This is where a person can be ‘borrowed’ to talk about social/cultural issues and subjects such as oral/social history.
This seems to have relevance to education where academics/tutors could be ‘lent’ out to provide support to students. Although this sounds unlikely in effect it already happens in those institutions which provide drop-in support for study skills and basic skills.
