Nobody Told Me I’d Have to Teach! Strategies for the Accidental Instruction Librarian

January 23rd, 2009 by chief

Many people become librarians because of a love of research and reading or a strong commitment to public service – not because they love getting up in front of groups and teaching. Yet academic librarians are more and more frequently finding themselves thrust into the teaching spotlight by the increasing demand for library skills and information literacy programs. This six-hour workshop uses a little lecture mixed with a lot of discussion and meaningful activities to explore some pedagogical fundamentals that will help you become better in the classroom. What we’ll cover:

  • Planning effective content and negotiating with teaching faculty
  • Improving delivery for increased student outcomes
  • Evaluation and assessment

Past trainings:

  • ACRL Sponsored preconference at ALA Midwinter Meeting, Denver, Colorado.¬† January 23, 2009.
    Co-taught with Laura  M. Coons.
