Contents Notes
Faced with planning a one-shot library instruction session, librarians can feel hard-pressed to squeeze in all their library has to offer along with tips on the research process. Authentic learning with student interaction may seem unattainable in only an hour. The keys are communicating clearly with the course instructor, developing a realistic plan, and employing effective teaching strategies. Buchanan and McDonough invite librarians to turn everyday challenges into instruction that is meaningful and relevant for students. They never told me this in library school -- The teaching faculty won't/don't : communicating and collaborating with instructors -- But, how will I cover everything? -- How do I get them to pay attention? : classroom strategies for one-shot instruction -- But my classroom is (online, in an auditorium, in a classroom with no computers) -- How will I know what worked? -- There's not enough of me to go around! : what to do when you become a victim of your own success.
