CityLIS 17/18 Cohort Blogs

Everyone enrolled on a CityLIS master’s degree is required to have a blog, suitable for personal reflective, and professional level, written/visual communication. Whilst communication skills have always been desirable for the workplace, in today’s digital society they are essential, and it is often necessary to promote ideas and viewpoints beyond the professional environment, into the wider community. Clear and effective communication is a fundamental life skill for the 21st century, and one which we feel should be an intergral part of all LIS courses.

At CityLIS we use reflective blogging as formative assessment in one of our modules, [Data, Information, Technologies and Applications], wherein three, 500 word submissions are required throughout the 10 sessions. These are unassessed, but allow staff and students to check learning progress, understanding of course content, and its wider relevance. CityLIS writers learn from reading and commenting on peer posts, and the exercise is generally enjoyable.

Students are encouraged to write more than the three required, formative assessment posts, and we are pleased with the standard of writing, the inspired approaches, and innovative insight that the writing reveals in respect of modern library & information science theory and practice.

If you would like to take a look, here is a list of our 17/18 new cohort bloggers.
