Part of the Practical Guides for Librarians series


How to Teach: A Practical Guide for Librarians is designed for librarians and other educators who must instruct library patrons on subjects ranging from research skills to understanding and using electronic tools to providing self-paced instruction.

This book provides public, academic, school, and special librarians with practical applications based on theoretical approaches to adult learning; instructional design principles to help them plan, deliver, and assess learning; examples and model lessons illustrating face-to-face instruction and online training; and descriptions and step-by-step instructions showing them how to create self-paced materials to complement their teaching.

Ready-to-use, customizable worksheets; handouts; and evaluation forms serve as models.

Exercises in each chapter reinforce its content. URLs identify additional ideas and materials from librarian colleagues to enhance teaching.
