Inspirerte og motiverte studenter på videreutdanning i pedagogikk og veiledning

av Elin Opheim

20. september startet 20 bibliotekarer på studiepoenggivende videreutdanning i pedagogikk og veiledning ved Høgskolen i Innlandet.

Bibliotekarene kommer fra høgskole og universitet, fra folkebibliotek og videregående skole, og fra voksenopplæring.

Studiet er samlingsbasert og tre samlinger er unnagjort.  Hjemmeeksamen venter etter påske. Samlingene gir introduksjoner til pedagogikk, didaktikk og veiledning og studentene skriver oppgaver underveis.  Studieoppgave to handlet om digitale læringsformer, og bestod blant annet av å lage en læringsressurs.  Her kom det mange nyttige idéer til undervisning, og konkrete ressurser å ta med tilbake til egen arbeidsplass.

Veiledning har en betydelig plass i undervisning og pensum, og gir mulighet til å bygge kompetanse på veiledning i avtalte settinger, men også øvelse i å møte ulike brukere på en god måte.  Vi trenger kanskje alle å bli bevisste på forskjellene mellom veiledning og rådgivning, og å gi brukerne våre mulighet til å finne svaret selv?

Her er noen av studentenes tanker om videreutdanningen:

«Studiet bidrar til å inspirere og motivere til å ta i bruk nye metoder i undervisningen, særlig i forhold til å bruke digitale verktøy.  Det har også økt bevisstheten min rundt hva veiledning er, og gitt meg verktøy til å bli en bedre veileder.»

«Jeg har stor nytte av det faglige fellesskapet.  Det å få høre hva andre tenker og gjør i undervisning og veiledning er verdifullt, samt å dele erfaring fra arbeidet vårt.  Vi lærer nye måter å tenke på og får ideer om verktøy og metoder som jeg absolutt skal bruke i mitt arbeide.»

«Dette studiet har utfordret meg til å teste ut sider ved meg selv som jeg ikke visste jeg hadde i meg: for eksempel det å bruke humor og kreativitet i møte med digitale verktøy, og dermed faktisk utvikle meg selv i positiv retning som pedagog og underviser.»

«Studiet er ikke ferdig ennå, men tegner til å bli det «løftet» og den vitamin-innsprøytingen i yrkeslivet jeg håpet det ville bli.»

Det er foreløpig ikke avklart om høgskolen starter et nytt kull med studenter til høsten, men informasjon kommer.

The Board will welcome applications from all those who are eligible (see below for further details on eligibility), including those who are newly registered as members.

The Aims of the EAHIL-EBSCO Scholarship Programme are:

  • To maintain a high and relevant quality of presentations/CECs at conferences and workshops

With these Aims in mind the Board has agreed the following criteria for eligibility. Scholarship applicants are required to observe *all* of the conditions, and the Board will not consider any application that fails to comply with them.

  • Applicants must be professionally resident in one of the member states of the Council of Europe http://www.coe.int/en/web/portal/47-members-states

  • Applications must be made only on the official online application form. They must comply with all requirements regarding length of application. Supplementary material sent in addition to the application form will not be accepted.
  • Successful applicants will not be eligible for any concurrent fee waiver offered to specified participants at the conference.
  • Successful applicants will be required to provide a written report on their experience in attending the conference as scholarship winners, for publication in the Journal of EAHIL.

All applications will be considered in confidence. They will be judged on the merits of the case submitted by each applicant. In assessing each application the Board will be particularly keen to support those members who are still getting established in their professional careers, and will take into account a number of criteria, including:

  • The applicant’s number of years working in health information
  • Will this be the applicant’s first attendance at an EAHIL conference/workshop?
  • How does the applicant intend to contribute to EAHIL 2018?
  • How does the applicant expect to benefit from attending EAHIL 2018?

The Board will also give special weighting to applicants who work in one of the Council of Europe states included in the WHO’s HINARI Groups A and B http://www.who.int/hinari/eligibility/en/
