Digital Library Pedagogy

The DLF Digital Library Pedagogy Working Group, also known as #DLFteach, is a grassroots community of practice formed thanks to practitioner interest following the 2015 DLF Forum. We empower digital library practitioners to see themselves as teachers and equip teaching librarians to engage learners in how digital library technologies shape our knowledge infrastructure. The group is open to anyone interested in learning about or collaborating on digital library pedagogy. To find out more about our current projects and get involved, visit our page on the DLF wiki.
