Aya Van Renterghem, Teaching and Learning Coordinator (Special Collections)

Although there have always been volunteering opportunities at Special Collections, it was never considered an integral part of our teaching and learning offer. In the academic year 2022-2023, however, we ran a pilot scheme with a small number of volunteers to see if it would be possible to have a volunteering programme at Special Collections.

This talk will discuss our pilot, what we have learned from it, and how we are going to approach setting up a volunteering programme with a systematic approach which considers the impact of volunteering in terms of employability and social responsibility in the academic year 2023-2024.
