|Summary:||"A concise, practical guide to effective teaching with a focus on the professional education of graduate students and adults. Many librarians are thrust into positions where they are asked to teach adults, but most LIS programs do not offer any preparation for this role. And yet, designing instruction is a skill that can make or break a career. In this book, Melissa A. Wong, an instructional designer, helps information professionals to prepare for their roles as teachers as well as information providers. Covering topics that range from syllabus construction to evaluation and student feedback, the book offers practical guidance on how to communicate with and support students and how to come up with assignments and grade them, along with advice on accessibility issues and working with technologies such as LMS, OER, videos, and PowerPoint. It demonstrates how to adapt principles of effective teaching to settings including workshops, professional development courses, conference presentations, and staff training. It also discusses professional challenges such as managing workload and shows how to adapt formal coursework to informal teaching situations. Librarians who wish to learn new methods or improve on their teaching and course design skills should read this book." -- Publisher's description
