Let's Get Together: Collaborating with our Academic Communities Beyond the One-Shot

Friday, February 10, 2017
California State University, Dominguez Hills

Library instruction is one of the ways in which libraries provide relevant and point-of-need public services as they emerge at the demand of faculty and students and has had many iterations since its early days in academic libraries. During this time, librarians have embraced their roles as educators and have closely followed the discussions related to the information literacy movement.

Instruction librarians are grasping hold of the one-shot and working continuously to better bolster these sessions and even expand user engagement, student and faculty learning above and beyond these brief touch-points in library instruction. How are librarians working around overwhelming demands for instruction requests? How do librarians escape the inevitable burnout from repetitive content and very limited-reach that these one-shots, by very virtue of their format, restrict us to in our teaching and instruction design?

Join us as we explore these questions. "Let's Get Together: Collaborating with our Academic Communities Beyond the One-Shot" for a day of Research & Practice Presentations and Lightning Rounds around the theme of collaborating on instruction within our learning communities of faculty, staff, student support units and academic administration.

We will be seeking proposals related to teaching and learning practices that focus on the success and challenges related to engaging with faculty and other campus groups beyond just the one-shot. This would include instruction assessment, assignment design, embeddedness, tutorial development, curriculum development, experiential learning, student success & retention.

Want to get involved? Watch your email for the following opportunities:

  • Help: Join the SCIL Works Selection Committee as a peer reviewer!
  • Present: Look out for our Call for Proposals--coming soon!
  • Attend: Registration information details forthcoming!

See you on February 10!
