Course Begins: Learning Design Essentials for Librarians

May 29, 2017


Librarians provide many services to their patrons that are instructional in nature, including: helping patrons at the reference desk, teaching information literacy classes, or developing educational programs. By understanding the essentials of learning design, librarians can better prepare the ways they communicate and plan the instructional experiences for patrons. This course will introduce participants to key learning theories and they will practice applying theoretical concepts to the design of instructional materials (e.g., handout to be used at the reference desk or classroom) and a learning environment (e.g., a classroom or programming space). Participants will be able to identify the necessary steps to develop patron-centered learning experiences that can that can be used at the reference desk, in a class, or program.
