This webinar is based on experiences of working over the past two years with a number of further education (FE) colleges to help them increase engagement with digital resources and library services. It draws on the recommendations of a number of librarians/learning resources managers on how they have increased engagement with, and use of, their resources. The emphasis will be on non-technical approaches to enhance student experience, learning and teaching.

Lis Parcell will share recommendations which will be particularly useful for librarians and learning resources staff in FE colleges, but may also be of interest to staff working in smaller university library services. Participants will be encouraged to contribute their own views on the challenges they face in increasing engagement with their digital resources and library services. We will also highlight further support available from Jisc in this area. Lis will co-present with Elizabeth Newbold, Library Manager at Activate Learning.

Date: Tuesday 16 May 2017
Time: 1230 BST (British Summer Time)
