Lesson planning is a vital yet often overlooked aspect to information literacy instruction. It can be challenging for new and established library instructors alike, not only due to its time-intensiveness, but also because there aren't many opportunities to learn. To be successful, lesson plans should be student-focused and include explicit learning outcomes, logical sequencing, and formative learning activities. In this workshop, presenters will discuss common challenges for library instructors and provide tips on creating effective and engaging lesson plans. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and learn from each other, and will have hands-on time to work on a lesson plan they bring to the workshop. Participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of how to create successful lesson plans and with new ideas for improving and implementing their own.
1. Participants will be able to evaluate their own instructional practice in order to identify strengths and weaknesses.
2. Participants will be able to recognize best practices for lesson planning in order to design effective lesson plans and address the gaps in their lesson design.
3. Participants will be able to apply best practices demonstrated in the workshop to create an effective lesson plan for future classroom use.
