Redesigning Library Instruction: A Collaborative Process
Keywords:instructional design, librarian-faculty collaboration, information literacy, lifelong learning
Redesigning library instruction should be a collaborative process contingent on contributions from librarians and faculty. Librarian-faculty collaboration to redesign library instruction reinforces course curriculum and learning objectives, integrates information literacy standards across curriculum, promotes critical thinking and technology skills, and demonstrates academic librarians’ knowledge of pedagogy and instructional design. Indiana Tech’s McMillen Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana uses a variety of methods to foster collaboration between librarians and faculty during the library instruction redesign process. This collaborative process creates a learning environment built upon the academic, professional, and lifelong learning successes of students.
