Stepping Back from the Line: How We Stopped Teaching and Built a Stronger Program

Participants in this session will gain an overview of the Library Instruction Reboot project, an opportunity one instruction department took to stop teaching for a semester and intentionally evaluate their teaching partnerships and commitments in order to choose meaningful integrations going forward. Session facilitators will lead a discussion about tactics for integrating new methods and modes of teaching into what is already a full plate and provide strategies for evaluating teaching partnerships. Participants will leave with ideas, both big and small, that we can use to keep our programs, and ourselves, fresh and relevant.

Participants will:
  • Be able to assess curricular partnerships based on a set of defined characteristics in order to identify the most appropriate teaching partners and curricular integrations.
  • Gain tools for thinking about how their institutions are integrating information literacy instruction in order to ensure places it's most meaningful.
  • Leave with strategies for making time and space in order to foster innovation within their instructional programs.
