A concise, practical guide to effectively teaching current and future librarians in graduate programs, professional settings, and beyond. Many librarians are thrust into positions where they are asked to teach colleagues. Others choose to share their knowledge and experience by preparing the next generation of librarians in graduate programs. However, few such librarians have received any formal education in instructional design. In this book, Melissa A. Wong, an expert instructional designer, helps information professionals to prepare for their roles as teachers of current and future librarians. Covering topics that range from syllabus construction to evaluation and student feedback, the book offers practical guidance on how to communicate with and support learners and how to come up with assignments and grade them, along with advice on accessibility issues and working with technologies such as LMS, OER, videos, and PowerPoint. It demonstrates how to adapt principles of effective teaching to settings including workshops, professional development courses, conference presentations, and staff training. It also discusses professional challenges such as managing workload and shows how to adapt formal coursework to informal teaching situations. Librarians who wish to learn new methods or improve on their teaching and course design skills should read this book.

There seems to be little resistance to the idea that children and teens learn in public library spaces. However, many public librarians do not see themselves as teachers. This implies that much of the learning that happens in public libraries is incidentalÑtangential to the ÒrealÓ purpose and design of these spaces and programs. In this book, we make the case that public librarians should embrace an explicit instructional role as a core part of their professional practice. Inside, youÕll find both a comprehensive review of what is known so far about instruction for youth in public libraries and a primer on core educational concepts and frameworks for current and future public librarians. Each chapter includes real-world examples of libraries and librarians who are already practicing powerful teaching.

"With an explosion of accessible information online and students feeling more and more independent in their searching skills and information needs, libraries are shifting to user-centered models. With this shift comes a need for librarians to transform the focus of the library from a great repository of material into a service-centric, one-stop research and learning shop for patrons. These changes are requiring librarians to define the library by the services it can provide, especially innovative ones, such as publishing services, scholarly communications, and project management. Instructional design can help librarians craft and assess these new and innovative services, including teaching information literacy, developing online content, and designing programs and outreach initiatives in a targeted and mindful way. Creative Instructional Design: Practical Applications for Librarians explores the major overarching themes that show why instructional design is so impactful for academic librarians--intentionality, collaboration, and engagement--and provides you with extensive examples of how librarians are applying the theoretical perspectives of instructional design in practical ways. The book examines ways in which librarians are using instructional design principles to inform, construct, or evaluate information literacy initiatives; online library instruction and services; and programming and outreach efforts. Instructional design provides a way for instructors, trainers, and educators to both approach instruction creation systematically, and evaluate how it has been effective and how it can be improved. Regardless of the instructional format, from classes to workshops to videos to worksheets, instructional design strives to ensure that potential learning gains by students are maximized and that the instruction is evaluated for improvement in future iterations"--
