Time Management and Study Skills

Yesterday I had a workshop on “Time Management and Study Skills” for LIS students at TMU. It was my first experience of running a workshop on this topic, and I found it very interesting. The participants showed their great interest and we had a lot to talk about. In particular, as the topic is related to everyone’s everyday life, they actively participated in the discussions. Hopefully, we all can improve our Time Management and our Study Skills!

Future Librarians

I made a speech at the National Library for a group of new LIS students from different Iranian universities on last Tuesday, 17 November. It was part of a briefing session entitled “Future Librarians” which was held by the federation of LIS student associations in Iran with the collaboration of ILISA. My speech’s title was: “An Experience of Being a Librarian: A Narration of Learning Opportunities”. I'll upload the PowerPoint slides on my homepage.
