Summary: Many librarians find that teaching patrons, colleagues, and other stakeholders is a significant part of their work, regardless of their role in the library. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering where or how to begin, this session is a straightforward introduction to designing, developing, implementing and assessing instruction. We will cover what the discipline of instructional design is, some of the most popular models in the field, and suggestions for applying instructional design inside and outside your library.
