ACRL Instruction Series

Recordings from the ACRL Instruction Section Management and Leadership Committee online discussion series:

Char Booth: Cultivating Campus Collaboration

For librarians who work in information literacy program development, creating and sustaining meaningful ties with a diverse range of campus stakeholders is an essential and complex task. This webinar will involve participants in a discussion about cultivating effective institutional collaborations, from identifying and engaging potential partners to curriculum mapping strategies to assessing (and sometimes ending) campus relationships.


Michelle Millet: Mentoring Colleagues

Are you involved in building an instruction program but are challenged to bring the pieces together because the people involved don’t report directly to you? Having trouble trying to figure out how to put all of the pieces of your program together? Join us to learn about ways to influence people involved in your instruction program so that the work gets done in a more collaborative way. Hear about and share ideas to align the strengths and challenges of your instruction program to your overall goals.


Sara Lowe: Developing Learning Outcomes

For librarians who teach, learning outcomes are vital. Without them, it is difficult to assess learning and gauge success. This session will discuss all aspects of learning outcomes so that participants can integrate them into their teaching practice.
