LATINA Uganda 2015 Course
Today, marks the beginning of the Learning and Teaching in a digital world course for members of the Consortium of Uganda University Libraries (CUUL).
Through the INASP Professional Leadership Grant, the General Secretary of the consortium attended the specialised courses in Cape Town organised by Cape Penninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and the team from the LATINA Lab, Oslo.
This workshop is a follow-up activity and with support form the LATINA Lab in Oslo, the workshop has become a reality. The CUUL training site has been set up at: http://edxy.net/cuul/
The morning session started with an Ice breaker as well as setting the session objectives in a participatory manner.
Participants felt it necessary to brainstorm about how libraries can effectively use Social media for academic purposes. It is worth noting that almost all participants are actively using social media for creating, sharing and disseminating information. However, some libraries have not yet embraced social media.
Later in the day we shall be looking at the different tools for creating and sharing information.
