FE toolkits

Dissemination events are ongoing – there will be a London launch on Thursday 12 March at CILIP HQ.

The Welsh toolkit is due for publication shortly and will be available in electronic and hardcopy formats. When published the toolkit will be available for download from the fforwm (Welsh association of colleges) website.

Conferences

There is now a webpage with a booking form for the national conference to be held at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh from 17-19 June 2009.

The CoFHE Cymru conference has a wiki containing details of the event to be held on Friday 24 April 2009 at Coleg Glan Hafren (Cardiff). This event will be free of charge owing to funding from CILIP Cymru.

Publications

There is a feature (including a piece by me on the Applications of ICT in Libraries qualification) on training for library staff in Wales in the latest CyMAL magazine: Focus on… training, CyMAL, Winter 2008, 7, pp 20-23.

My blog post on using screencasts in information literacy has been expanded into an article: Andrew Eynon, Web 2.0 tools in FE: use of screencasts in information literacy, Panlibus, Winter 2009, 11, p. 9.
