Tips for Scheduling Library Instruction
- Schedule as far in advance as possible.
- Plan a definite assignment for your students. It may be a term paper, a semester project, an annotated bibliography, or any assignment that requires students to obtain information that requires research. For more information, check out Creating Effective Assignments or contact your library liaison.
- Have students select their individual topics well in advance and tell us what they specifically are. When the session is given, the students will be actively involved, and the librarian instructor will be prepared to teach them.
- Be specific about what you want your students to learn during the session. Feel free to request specific titles and resources that you would like to have covered.
- Prepare the students beforehand by letting them know that you expect them to listen during the instruction session and to apply what they learn.
- Attend the instruction session because faculty comments and participation enhance the effectiveness of library instruction. And, of course, students are always more engaged if the instructor is present.
