    • learning activities from ELISE open learning objects - activities underpinned by threshold concepts which empower students through practice to achieve a learning threshold 
  • understanding of resources/formats of information types specific to course
  • prepare relevant, up-to-date Library collection resources and/or OERs - work together to create a course package of library related content using Leganto to create and share
  • specific copyright guidance - media types, common questions for information formats used in course, OEL toolkit, Copyright Clarified video
  • vendor specific training – face to face and/or online vendor resources (for discipline specific databases such as Medline and Westlaw)
