Abstract

This session builds upon a session from last year: Library Instruction, Learning Outcomes, and Assessment: A compliance strategy for SACS assessments. The EKS Library at Wingate University found a large number of students were repeating library instruction in several classes with the same content repeated; in other cases, a number of students did not receive library instruction at all. The level of inconsistency across the student body became a pressing concern for the library instruction team. Met with much resistance, the library instruction team determined standardization and scaffolding was the most appropriate solution to these problems and in alignment with the new changes to the SACSCOC regulations. In this session, the librarians will share strategies for marketing the project, experiences standardizing curriculums in classes that frequently schedule library instruction, and efforts to scaffold these classes to maximize both the number of students reached and the quality of instruction. The discussion will be around the project’s start in Summer 2018, its development to the current day, and our plans for further standardizing & scaffolding in the future. The end of the session will include time for participants to ask questions, especially for those interested in a similar project at their institution.
