Tim Leonard – Information Skills at UCO using Summon


You can watch the video recording of this lightning session here.

In this lightning session, Tim set the scene by talking about University College Oldham (UCO) itself and its partnership with the University of Huddersfield, focusing on how organisational factors impact on the way information literacy is taught at UCO. He then went on to describe how they use Summon as a starting point for most of their students and to detail how they teach Summon, basing  information literacy sessions around specific assignments, emphasizing the importance of refining searches and giving students the time to explore Summon for themselves.
