Proposal Abstract

A decade ago, four TRU librarians presented their first Teaching Practices Colloquium poster, calling for more collaborative library instruction classes and fewer library scavenger hunts. In our 2020 poster we will incorporate and revisit this past document as we reflect on how our teaching practice has changed, where it remains the same, and what our goals for information literacy are going forward, especially in light of TRU’s Graduate Attributes. These institutional learning outcomes include “knowledge acquisition and application” and “critical thinking, analysis, problem-solving and research,” which align with the objectives of library instruction. The incorporation of both course and campus-level learning outcomes in the past decade has provided librarians a structure on which to hang our own teaching and classroom goals. We will point to new ways we are addressing some of the same challenges as we did ten years ago, such as the gamification of library instruction. We will share what we have learned through starting to assess our instruction practices – something that remains a challenge, but that was not a part of our regular practice a decade ago. Finally, we will address new professional standards that inform our teaching practice, highlight new librarian-instructor collaborations that we think exemplify current best practices for library instruction, and identify potential areas of growth for our teaching practices.

Statement

This poster addresses “Current Trends” by showing what librarians currently do in teaching information literacy and “Throwback Thursday” by incorporating an older poster with past practices.

This document is currently not available here.
