Inquiry Based Learning talks

Sheila Webber gave presentations last week at the ESCalate conference, held at Stirling University (on Inquiry Based Learning in a first year undergraduate class) and at the CLIASS Staf-Student Symposium, held here in Sheffield in the Information Commons (on Inquiring in Second Life). In the latter talk she was joined by Masters student Tim Zijlstra in real life, and by St Andrews University librarian Vicki Cormie in Second Life.
Sheila was also quoted recently in a Guardian feature discussing students' use of information (http://education.guardian.co.uk/librariesunleashed/story/0,,2274796,00.html ), with her Second Life avatar referred to as a "blue haired babe"!
