University of Houston librarians will take part in a series of virtual conversations with librarians from Swansea University, located in the United Kingdom. UH librarians will share information about UH Libraries’ practices and processes regarding the development of online learning.
In what will be the first of several scheduled talks, members of the UH Libraries Instruction Program will cover topics such as library staff structure, software, and assessment of student engagement with Swansea librarians.
The endeavor is mutually beneficial. It supports UH Libraries’ values of increasing cross-cultural knowledge and engaging in continual improvement; sharing experiences with partner institutions allows UH librarians to critically think about methods and processes.
The academic libraries’ talks represent an established record of strategic partnership between the two universities. Swansea University, a world-class public research university located in Swansea, Wales, is a UH partner institution, with a student exchange program, teaching and research collaboration, guest lectures, and joint conferences.
