The Instructor College Library Instruction Research Guide aims to support and educate beginning and experienced instructor librarians within U-M Library and beyond. From one-shot workshops to supplementing in-class activities and assignments, instruction is a vital aspect of librarianship at colleges and research institutions.
The goals of our instruction program are to:
"Connect the campus community with contextually relevant resources to support teaching, learning, and research. To achieve this, we will teach users to effectively and efficiently access, evaluate, and use resources through course integrated instruction; print and web-based media; individual and group consultation.
Create new models of instruction to respond to the changing information and learning environments, including new demands, formats, multi and interdisciplinary scholarship. To achieve this we will conduct user needs and learning outcomes assessments; create new methods of instruction that engage the campus community; and conduct regular environment scans of the latest research on teaching and learning.
Engage with units across campus to assess needs and develop collaborative responses.
To achieve this, we will work with campus programs, colleges, and departments to provide appropriate instruction."
