How to Teach: A Practical Guide for Librarians, Second Edition (Practical Guides for Librarians #35) (Paperback)

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.
Beverley E. Crane has taught both face-to-face and online courses to students, other educators, and librarians at three universities and middle and high schools in all types of libraries. In addition, while working for Dialog and ProQuest, she spent more than twenty years designing face-to-face and online webinars, as well as online materials including one-page how-to guides, short instructional videos, and other information to deliver concise training using images and text to librarians, educators, and the business community.
