Got a great activity idea for library instruction? Want to get it "on its feet" and gather feedback from other teaching librarians? Or are you simply interested in learning more about how your Bibliographic Instruction SIG colleagues are approaching lesson design and facilitation? Come join us!
The plan is to break into small "fishbowl" groups to try out 10-minute versions of activities. Maybe you have a brand new idea, you're trying to adapt something to a new context, and/or you want to try your hand at some new mode of facilitation. Bring in your lesson plan, along with any handouts or props you'll need. Limited internet-connected laptops will be available. Finally, as a large group we'll discuss lesson design/facilitation strategies, adaptation to teaching contexts, and various challenges and issues. We hope to see you there!
Who should attend:
Librarians who provide research and information literacy instruction.
By the end of this program, participants will:
- "Beta Test" a lesson plan, and should have a clearer idea of how to proceed in the classroom
- Learn about a variety of activity lesson plans from BI SIG members
-Have strategies for improving activity lesson plans and for adapting them to specific library contexts
