Abstract

While Chattanooga State Community College’s Kolwyck Library had a firm foundation in library instruction and outreach, several changes occurred in 2012-2013 that turned the library and its instruction program on its ear. After thirty years, the Dean of Library Services and the Instruction Coordinator retired. Meanwhile, the library space was reborn: the Kolwyck Library & Information Commons (KLIC) was remodeled with new service models and modes of instruction in mind. With new personnel and a new space, the stage was set to rethink, formalize and revitalize KLIC’s Library Instruction Program.

The first step would be to “flip” one class – “RI 100 –Personal and College Success.” In this class, students were to complete a “Career” PowerPoint presentation derived from resources introduced by librarians. After extensive observation, the new Dean worked with the new instruction coordinator to “flip it up” – a course redesigned to include more active learning, specific student learning outcomes, class engagement, and to use the time allotted more effectively and efficiently.

This presentation will highlight the historical context, changes made in the class, and formative assessment measures administered to improve the content. The discussion will also outlining the plans for the future of this course and the impact these changes will have on the development of KLICs Library Instruction Program. Tools that will be used in the session include: lecture, interactive polls, sample class handouts and electronic access to a specially created Libguide for this presentation with links to the actual class guide used.
