On the 16th December 2020, librarians from higher and further education institutions across Wales gathered for the latest WHELF teachmeet to share good practice. As you’d expect in 2020, the event took place online. The theme was learning and teaching remotely. Colleagues drew on their experiences of the previous nine months to share the ways in which they’ve been teaching and supporting students online. An accompanying Padlet allowed attendees and others to exchange ideas and ask for help. There were three presentations on the day:

· Creating interactive library tutorials with LibWizard

Jose Lopez Blanco, University of South Wales

· Creating online library content using Microsoft Sway and Articulate Storyline

Alice de Angeli and Peter Duffield Fuller, University of Wales, Trinity St. David

· Changing times: a case study of embedded asynchronous learning and teaching

Rebecca Mogg and Neil Pollock, Cardiff University

Attendees received a feedback survey after the event. All respondents reported that the teachmeet was helpful. Comments showed that respondents appreciated the opportunity to see how other institutions had approached remote teaching and learning as well as recognising common challenges.

The Padlet is still available and we encourage you to keep using it to share ideas and discussions:
