Presentation Description  
From Library Instruction to Instructional Design: Experiments in Consultancy at UC Berkeley 

For many academic libraries, the library instruction session (or sessions), whether delivered on demand or strategically integrated into pre-identified courses, is the foundation of our information literacy programs. Except where credit-bearing IL courses are concerned, instruction librarians typically occupy the role of “guest lecturer”.  By rethinking this role and repositioning ourselves as consultants in assignment design, librarians can create a more diverse array of instructional products while increasing our impact on student learning in the courses we work with. With examples drawn from a multi-disciplinary selection of courses, Kathleen Gallagher describes the process and products of assignment consultancy in the context of her experience as Mellon Library Fellow for Teaching and Learning at UCB.

    Presentation Description 

    At UCSC, the Reference Unit is in charge of providing instruction for the campus's Writing 2 (rhetoric & inquiry) class. As the instruction coordinator for the unit, I led an effort to produce a hands-on version of our lecture-style instruction session that utilizes learing exercises; essentially, a one-shot that emphases  active learning. Because this class has only been piloted, I will talk about initial goals and design of the class, successes and failures, and future prospects.
