Librarian Faculty Partnerships: How to Collaboratively Enhance the Classroom Experience -- Improving Student Learning and Librarian Pedagogy
Academic librarians are developing teaching partnerships with faculty in order to enhance student learning and promote information literacy. In this workshop you will learn how to develop a program to encourage librarian/faculty partnerships and how to become teaching librarians.
Librarians need to ensure that library resources and new information technologies are integrated into the curriculum. One way of doing this is by collaborating with faculty. Creating partnerships takes effort and skills that librarians can learn. In addition, librarians need to develop effective pedagogical techniques in library instruction, based upon current theories and practice. Librarians also need to understand the use of technology and how to successfully integrate it into partnerships.
The workshop will cover techniques for developing successful partnerships on campus, the importance of a training program for teaching librarians, and some hands on experience for attendees with basic pedagogical concepts and techniques. The workshop will model these techniques and will be conducted in the Library's electronic classroom to provide an interactive learning environment.
