TL videos and lighthouse run

Thanks to Margie Wallin at Southern Cross University (SCU which is confusingly an anagram of my university CSU), I can alert you to a series of videos made by the library staff at SCU and teacher librarians. The library guides for teacher education students, encouragingly called What your teacher librarian can do for you, include videos in which teacher librarians, as well as teachers and school principals, talk about the role of the TL, as well as aspects of information literacy and how important school libraries are. In the TL field, there are frequent complaints that trainee teachers don’t get much encouragement to know about school libraries or information literacy, so this is a very good example which I hope other institutions will follow.

Last weekend, I was helping to marshal a cross-country run which took place around Barns Ness Lighthouse, which is about 3k from my house. It was a cool morning, with the sun coming and going – although this did not affect the 60+ junior and 80+ adult runners from enjoying the route which took them over 2 stretches of beach as well as paths within the grass-covered dunes nearby. A very picturesque route, with the sea on one side and the Lammermuir Hills on the other. Before the run, when the route was being set up, I took some photos near the lighthouse and you can see one of the photos below.
