We are inviting each SCL member authority to nominate two roadshow delegates. Their names, job titles and email addresses should be sent to Mag at by November 1.

The hands-on nature of the roadshow workshops means delegate numbers need to be limited – but Mag will keep a ‘waiting list’ for any spare places.

Free Family Learning and Digital Roadshows

Learning and Digital Universal Offer leads Julie Griffiths and Ayub Khan have joined forces – and budgets – to plan a national series of SCL Roadshows, to take place between October 2017 and March 2018. The roadshows (10.00am – 4.30pm) are FREE with lunch provided.

Each event will feature two Family Learning workshops (focused on a new activities pack and evaluation toolkit), plus hands-on demonstrations of the latest technology aimed at frontline staff who – with a little bit of training – could deliver digital taster events in their own areas.

The rationale for linking the two UOs in this way is a recent report on ‘The Experiential Library’, commissioned by the Learning UO, which recommends embedding digital in the Family Learning ‘approach’ going forward.

The roadshows are being co-ordinated by Mag Astill, supported by a network of regional reps. The Family Learning workshops will be delivered by regional presenters, and we have recruited a number of staff from library services across the country to deliver the digital demonstrations and help develop a resource pack for delegates.
