Redefine your role as an academic librarian in a world of networked information! Future Teaching Roles for Academic Librarians helps you understand how the librarian can play a central role in the new university paradigm. In the past few years, the focus of higher education has begun to shift from the traditional, passive lecture-discussion where teachers talk and students listen to a new model that emphasizes student-centered, collaborative learning in all contexts, not just formal classroom situations. Academic libraries and librarians must adapt to meet the demands of this new educational motif or else fall behind. This book offers an overview of the kinds of library service that will be required, from helping students learn to use bibliographic databases to real-time online interactive information assistance--the cyber equivalent of the reference desk. You will learn practical techniques to facilitate information literacy and the principles of creating a seamless learning culture. One area in which libraries must provide new services is in helping students learn to manage the flood of available data. Though many students are familiar with the online universe, they don't know how to design artful information-seeking strategies either there or in the more traditional venues of printed books and journals, microfilm, and pamphlets. Librarians can teach skills beyond basic information retrieval, including evaluation, critical thinking, and building a successful research strategy. These skills are more crucial than ever, not just to help students write term papers, but to prepare them for the kind of jobs they will face in an information-based economy. Future Teaching Roles for Academic Librarians provides you with practical suggestions for transforming traditional library instruction, including: rethinking assumptions about students’needs and behavior designing courses for students at different levels making the transition to libraries without walls creating core resources to promote information literacy ensuring that library programs and collections are visible to users This vital guide offers college librarians and library administrators the specific techniques you need to create a seamless learning environment, take on new roles and challenges, and meet the needs of students in an era of networked information and instant access.

The Academic Teaching Librarian’s Handbook is a comprehensive resource for academic library professionals and LIS students looking to pursue a teaching role in their work and to develop this aspect of their professional lives in a holistic way throughout their careers. The book is built around the core ideas of reflective self-development and informed awareness of one’s personal professional landscape. Through engaging with a series of exercises and reflective pauses in each chapter, readers are encouraged to reflect on their professional identity, self-image, self-efficacy and progress as they consider each of the different aspects of the teaching role. This handbook will: - provide a comprehensive resource on teaching, professional development and reflective practice for academic teaching librarians at all stages of their careers - explore the current landscape of teaching librarianship in higher education, and highlight the important developments, issues and trends that are shaping current and future practice - examine the roles and responsibilities of the academic teaching librarian in the digital era - introduce the essential areas of development, skill and knowledge that will empower current and future professionals in the role - inspire prospective and current academic teaching librarians to adopt a broad conception of the role that goes beyond the basic idea of classroom-based teaching, and provide practical tools to engage in personal development and career planning in this area. The Academic Teaching Librarian’s Handbook is an indispensable reference, suitable for early career professionals at the start of their teaching journey, as well as mid- or late-career librarians who may have moved into leadership and managerial roles and who wish to advance their teaching role to the next level.

Becoming Confident Teachers examines the teaching role of information professionals at a time of transition and change in higher education. While instruction is now generally accepted as a core library function in the 21st century, librarians often lack sufficient training in pedagogy and instructional design; consequently finding their teaching responsibilities to be stressful and challenging. By exploring the requirements and responsibilities of the role, this book guides teaching librarians to a position where they feel confident that they have acquired the basic body of knowledge and procedures to handle any kind of instructional requests that come their way, and to be proactive in developing and promoting teaching and learning initiatives. In addition, this book suggests strategies and methods for self-development and fostering a “teacher identity, giving teaching librarians a greater sense of purpose and direction, and the ability to clearly communicate their role to non-library colleagues and within the public sphere. Specifically examines the causes of stress among teaching librarians, zeroing in on recognisable scenarios, which are known to ‘zap’ confidence and increase teacher anxiety among librarians An up-to-date and easily digestible take on the role and responsibilities of the teaching librarian Identifies the major trends that are transforming the teaching function within professional academic librarianship
