The UNSW Teaching Commons in Dalton Building (F12) serves as a collaborative hub for interaction and the exchange of ideas among teaching staff. It aims to bolster teaching and learning practices university-wide.

To harness collaboration's potential, the Library is hosting tailored workshops and drop-in sessions in Term 3 at the Teaching Commons space.


These workshops aim to equip teaching academics with skills to enhance learning experiences by effectively integrating Library resources. A deeper grasp of Leganto's usage and curriculum integration ensures broader access to relevant resources, promoting student comprehension, engagement, and alignment with course goals.

We welcome your participation.
