Overview

Good instruction should not be left to chance and luck.This book is intended to provide you with a deliberate process of instructional design and the essential background information to ensure the resounding success of your library workshops.-Jerilyn Veldof from the Introduction Whether teaching research skills to college freshman, Internet skills to seniors, or staff development sessions to employees, librarians are repeatedly called on to deliver instruction in their library settings. Many librarians have never learned the basics of instructional design, much less how to effectively deliver information in a short time span, and they typically only have a short period of time-"one shot"-to deliver information. Now librarian and instructional design expert Jerilyn Veldof demystifies the process for her library colleagues. From needs assessment through design and implementation to final evaluations, this practical guide takes librarians step by step through the workshop process. Using these proven instructional design principles, librarians can: Assess learners and what they need Train multiple library instructors to maintain consistency in teaching and outcomes Replicate content for regularly scheduled workshops Develop a standard of presentation (including handouts) to maximize learning Evaluate results to ensure learners are getting what they need These principles of instructional design are for every librarian who delivers instruction in any form. Use the step-by-step checklist and ADDIE principles (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, Evaluation) to have a powerful impact on your audiences. With a focus on practical applications, Veldof shows instruction librarians how to make every minute count.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Comprehensive, curriculum-integrated information literacy programs may be the gold standard for academic librarians, but in reality many campuses still rely on the one-shot research skills session, whether for first-year students or upper-level research methodology courses. This is a timely, assessment-conscious, 20-step guide for a rigorous instructional design process, focusing on in-person, low-tech sessions. Topics include needs assessment, writing objectives, evaluation tools, selection of teaching methods, and workshop critique. The various steps are enhanced with quotes from practitioners, case studies, tips, illustrations, and checklists. Curiously, neither the Internet nor the World Wide Web appears in the index. Several web sites are referenced for supplemental information, however. Consult Developing Web-Based Instruction, edited by Elizabeth A. Dupuis, (Neal-Schuman) and Barbara Allen's E-Learning and Teaching in Library and Information Services (Facet) for online pedagogical ideas and smart classroom tips. Veldof, chair of the Instruction Librarians Group for the Committee on Institutional Cooperation consortium and director of undergraduate initiatives, University of Minnesota Libraries, has served on the Association of College and Research Libraries' Information Literacy Advisory Committee and writes extensively about information literacy, instructional design, and teaching. Recommended for all academic libraries. Betty J. Glass, Univ. of Nevada Lib., Reno Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
