  7. 7. Teaching Plan / Course Research Guide Looked over assignment. Saw what the students needs were. Realized to myself “this is a template class!” Developed a library/course instruction guide using the LibGuides platform, starting with the basic template created by James. DONE
  8. 8. No formal assessment done this time because instruction session took place in the academic classroom. • Informal feedback from faculty member was exceptionally positive . • Next academic year, instructor wishes for instruction session to be taught in the library classroom, with each student logged into their own computer so that active learning opportunities can take place. • Focused on the main frame that was the most obvious (Information Creation as a Process), but after further analysis realized that there are two other frames addressed within the assignment (Authority is Constructed and Contextual -&- Information Has Value)and within the instruction. Future instruction sessions will be enhanced by additional incorporation of these two other frames.
