Library Workshops

Workshop Schedule (Spring 2015)



The Library is transitioning to a core-concept workshop-based instruction model. The workshop model offers numerous advantages over traditional bibliographic instruction:

1. Pedagogically, workshops allow us to spend more time teaching each of the core concepts.

2. The compressed duration of the core-concept workshops address student’s learning styles.

3. The workshop model enables faculty members to promote the development of information competency skills without dedicating valuable class time to attending bibliographic instruction sessions in the Library.

4. The transition to workshops is the first step of:

  • Expanding library instructional services into additional delivery models.

  • Infusing information competency across the curriculum.
