Staff from Library and Student Support at Middlesex University have recently resumed Extended Project Question (EPQ) support for students from local schools and FE colleges. Our aim is to develop information literacy and academic skills, as well as enabling access to our resources.
During our presentation we will provide a brief overview of this level 3 qualification, who takes it and why. We will then discuss our approach to these workshops, how they have developed since 2014, practical issues encountered, and how we manage this offer collaboratively with our External Liaison and Outreach team.
Our EPQ workshops use the games and activities based pedagogy developed for our in house information literacy workshops, but adapted to meet the needs of school and college students. The games and activities are not an end in themselves, but are designed to encourage scaffolding on previous knowledge and critical reflection.
All our teaching materials are freely available via our EPQ LibGuide (http://libguides.mdx.ac.uk/EPQ) which we are happy to share with our M25 colleagues.
