Increasingly, the role of librarians in higher education is shifting from primarily librarian-as-expert to include librarian-as-educator. As a result, academic librarians with a wide variety of job titles are finding themselves contributing to the instructional services of their library. Even those librarians who have instruction as a principal responsibility may have little to no training or experience in instruction when they begin teaching students in one-shot or credit-bearing instruction situations. One way librarians can make concrete, positive changes to their instruction skills without a formal instruction training program is by engaging in reflective practices about their teaching decisions.
