Presentation Description

How do you prioritize the content you teach in a library instruction session? How do you structure the session to ensure that students are learning what they need to know? How can this information be used to inform assessment efforts? Starting with the end in mind - by identifying student learning outcomes - allows librarians to shift the focus from what we want to teach to what students need to learn. In this workshop participants will develop learning outcomes for an instruction session, use the learning outcomes to prioritize information literacy content, and discuss how learning outcomes can be used for broader assessment efforts.
