Library support to students on blended-learning courses: some thoughts on best practice

Research output: Contributions to journalsArticlepeer-review



There is value in librarians acquiring knowledge and understanding of
pedagogical theories and best practice. It increases credibility with teaching
colleagues and maximises the chances that students will benefit from the
teaching that we provide as part of their courses.
Today’s learners have more sophisticated expectations than the ‘chalk
and talk’ that previous generations accepted as the norm. The project
outcomes illustrate that it is demonstrably worth experimenting with different
technologies to create a variety of online self-help instructional materials.
