The Human Library at BCIT – we mentioned this in our June newsletter – due to circumstances beyond our control we need to postpone the event, but stay tuned as we are hoping to move forward in early 2023.
Business Research Modules – We are considering the development of Library instructional modules that focus on the needs of the SoB. These modules could either take the form of badges / MOOCs or micro-credentials, and at this stage, we are
looking at topics like academic integrity and business research fundamentals. We would appreciate working with willing volunteers in the SoB who would be willing to provide some guidance on the sort of material that would get uptake in the school and to provide feedback on the modules. The time commitment would be minimal. If this sounds like something you would be willing to help out with, please reach out to Deirdre or Jeff.
