You will understand the principles of teaching and learning and apply them to the design, delivery and evaluation of face to face and online information skills programs. You will use technology creatively to improve and introduce innovations to existing services and work practices. With a sound comprehension of the higher education and research sector, you will understand the research process and be able to empathise with those engaged in research. You will be a whizz at searching research databases and other online sources, and have no problem managing resources and facilities.
