At UCL Qatar, I am teaching Knowledge organisation and access, Digital Humanities, and Information literacy. I also coordinate the module on Library services for children and young adults.
My classes are interactive. Students can always read around the topic but what is most essential is to help them develop their critical thinking and the ability to articulate their ideas.
I encourage various forms of group work, including experimenting with collaborative digital tools. Here is an example of a padlet summarising the group work experience of a group of students working on a cataloguing policy of a fictional library in the Knowledge Organisation and Access class of 2018. This is an example from the class of 2019.
I also enjoy supporting my students to participate in academic and practitioners’ events. Here I am with Virgilio Medina, Zainab Iddriss and Collins Norch at the ElPub 2019. Zainab wrote about her experience in this guest blog post.
