  • Designated Library instruction classroom, but students bring their own laptops
  • IL is one of five life-long learning skills addressed throughout the Loras curriculum.
  • What this means for library instruction, is that we get to see all first-year students in both the Modes of Inquiry and College Writing classes, since instructors in both courses are required to bring their classes into the Library at least once each semester.
  • Had students read questions aloud. Forced us to ask known-answer questions. Lots of demos with minimal student participation. If we demo more than one resource, we lose student interest and they don’t retain anything.
  • The existing program discussed higher-order IL concepts, such as the scholarly communication process, and taught isolated skills, such as truncation. However, the concepts covered during the library instruction sessions were often taught outside of the context of the course or assignment, taught discrete skills without demonstrating how to apply or transfer them.Students left not knowing how to search for articles, find books in the stacks, or even the difference between the catalog and article databases.Handouts were text-heavy—found students reading aloud; distressed if we varied from the handout, but without clear expectations for the trajectory/outcomes of the lesson.
  • What is the VALUE rubric:
  • Why we only mapped to ACRL standards
  • Why we only mapped to ACRL standards
  • Discuss breakdown of skills in their course as well as other courses, how scheduling sessions will differ, communicating need for students to have a topic chosen before session. Emphazing how students will benefit and how we incorporated their feedback into our new design.
