CoLRiC Got To Leave Old Durham Town

Posted on: May 30, 2014

Foyer of New College Durham LRCOn 16 May the LRC Manager went to the Council for Learning Resources in Colleges (CoLRiC)  annual roadshow at New College Durham. CoLRiC Roadshows are great for sharing good practice and learning about what is new and happening in college libraries as well as networking.

The Durham roadshow kicked off with a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) session on using Socrative from North Warwickshire and Hinckley College (Ihar Ivanou) included talks on college mergers at Coleg Cambria (Patrick Cox), learning hubs at Dundee and Angus College (David Scott), Higher Education in Further Education at Wiltshire College (Janet Waters) and an update on the Six Book Challenge by the Reading Agency (Genevieve Clarke).

The roadshow also included a presentation on the one of the  CoLRiC Best Practice Award winners Oldham Sixth Form College (Corinne Walker) who had changed their library induction into a television-styled quiz and the CoLRiC Beacon Award Winner for 2013 Northern College (Sean McKernan) on the Effective Integration of Libraries/Learning Resource Centre (LRC) services in the Curriculum.

We also got a tour of New College Durham’s LRC (Mike Dann) – pictured above  and below which had displays showing You Said, We Did based on student suggestions and a special display on stress helping students to reduce exam tension and nerves…
