Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning

Booth, Char (2011). Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning: Instructional Literacy for Library Educators. Chicago: ALA.

Whether or not “instruction” appears in their job titles, librarians are often in the position of educating their users, colleagues, and peers to successfully locate and evaluate information. Because MLIS education tends to offer less-than-comprehensive preparation in pedagogy and instructional design, this book tackles the challenge of effective teaching and training head-on. In this book the author introduces a series of concepts that will empower readers at any level of experience to become better designers and presenters, as well as building their confidence and satisfaction as library educators.
