2012: While studying for my library Masters, I volunteered to run a weekly book club for sixth form students at a school in north London. The aim of the club was to encourage the students to read more widely in preparation for their English Literature A-Level exam the following year. I produced and assigned group work activities during the sessions in order to help the students with their critical reading skills.
2011: During my graduate traineeship I helped to organise the second Cambridge 23 Things programme, which was an online course aimed specifically at Cambridge librarians and which introduced participants to social networking, blogging, and other Web 2.0 tools.
2011: During my graduate traineeship I volunteered to write one of the exercises for the 23 Things for Professional Development programme, which was a self-directed course that introduced information professionals to new online tools and encouraged them to use these tools to further their own professional development. I also completed the course myself as a CPD exercise.
