Did you know that one of the benefits of membership is access to an extensive suite of archived Online Meet-up recordings and resources?
Not a current member?
Why not view this recording as a way to see one of the great benefits of being a SLANSW member. This Online Meet-up was presented to members to showcase evidence-based practice in action.
The session was presented by Helen Stower who is the Programme Leader of Information Services & iCentre at Mt Alvernia College in Kedron, Qld.
One of the cornerstone programs in the Mt Alvernia iCentre is the literature promotion program called Campfire. This program is run formally in Year 7 & 8. The program is well received at the school and the TL team at Mt Alvernia had some great anecdotal feedback about our Campfire sessions.
They also had loan statistics that showed Campfire sessions have dramatically increased the number of books borrowed by students. But is a book borrowed a book read?
It had long been Helen's concern that the TL team did not have any hard evidence that the program has merit and is beneficial to the literacy outcomes of our students. Throughout 2018, the Mt Alvernia TL team endeavoured to gather such evidence. This project is a work in progress and this presentation shares what they have learned so far.
