CSU TLship residential schools a success

On February 21/22 we had over 80 students enrolled in ETL401, ETL402 and ETL503 for Autumn session attend our Sydnay residential school held at the State Library.  Roy Crotty, Dianne Lane and myself enjoyed an action-packed 2 days getting to know our students face-to-face, and preparing everyone for a new session of study in teacher librarianship with us at Charles Sturt University. This year I think we broke a record of attendance in that we had student representation from every Australian state and territory (yes, even WA, SA, NT and Tassie!). Congratulations to all who travelled long distances and gave up their weekend to learn about the teaching role of the teacher librarian, information literacy & collaboration, collection management and the integration of literature in education.

Four days later Roy and I found ourselves back in Sydney (this time with Ashley Freeman, ETL503 Subject Coordinator), to meet  the group of 51 NSWDET teacher librarians who are enrolled in ETL401 and ETL503 this session. After another hectic 2 days, we came back exhausted but excited about the level of interest, enthusiasm and engagement our new students displayed upon returning to tertiary study (hey folks, how are you feeling now…remember Sampson?)
