The reviewers thought that an outstanding feature of this project was the close collaboration between teachers and librarians to achieve a highly learner-centred outcome. The project is well-documented through the practice paper that Linda Laven and Kim Baxter will be presenting at the FLANZ conference, and it has the potential to advance good practice beyond the project itself, as the methods used are clearly described and are transferable to many other subject areas and levels.” - FLANZ (Flexible Learning Association of New Zealand) (2021)
