Recap what has been covered
If a lecturer contacts you for a workshop;
1. Negotiate timings and content of the class with the lecturer immediately (myself or Kate no longer contact the lecturer to discuss these details).
2. When a lecturer is requesting a class in one of the Library Teaching Labs (WA305, AL120, or MA204), please check the lab calendar to see if the required time is available.
3. Ensure the online 'Library Workshop Request Form' is filled out.
Note: You might find it easier to fill out the form on the lecturer's behalf - this is absolutely fine, and sometimes probably even better.
4. If you are available and the lab (if requested) looks to be available, let the lecturer know that this should be all ok, and that they will receive an email to finalise and confirm the booking.
Danielle will enter the bookings in the Lab calendars in Outlook, send the confirmations, enter in the access database, and send out those reminder emails a week before the class takes place.
Don't hesitate to contact Danielle or myself if you are unsure if a lab is available, need some extra Librarians to teach, or it's a bit of a complicated request.
