Abstract

Ethel K. Smith Library’s Reference and Instruction Librarians, Kory Paulus and Isaac Meadows began a venture to improve the library instruction assessment tools in Fall of 2017 under the guidance of their Library Director and Director of Institutional Effectiveness and SACS Liaison.

Using the book entitled “Classroom Assessment Techniques for Librarians” published by ACRL as a proven example set of learning outcomes, the librarians customized these outcomes to meet the institutional needs.

An essential motive for this initiative was to obtain quantitative data to pair with learning outcomes to ensure bibliographics instruction’s alignment with both SACSCOC and Wingate University’s core curriculum goals.

The Reference and Instruction Librarians at Wingate University will walk you through their process of creating, editing and adjusting learning outcomes, lesson plans and subsequent assessments to fit their institutions goals and mission. In addition, during the workshop each attendee will complete the process and have at least 2 learning outcomes, a lesson plan and assessments applicable to their individual institution to bring back and implement at their libraries.

Come build skills to revamp learning outcomes, lesson plans and assessments to fit your library and institutional needs.
