What and How We Teach Now: A Survey of Youth Services Faculty
Welch, Cindy C.
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v54 n3 p220-234 Sum 2013
Youth services faculty in LIS programs have seen significant changes in the last ten years in the content they teach and the variety of methods by which they deliver instruction. However, youth services education continues to be understudied and this study takes a first look at several gaps in the LIS education literature: youth services faculty voices speaking directly about what and how they teach; information about the interaction between youth services coursework, professional competencies, and standards; and the impact of technology and popular culture on LIS youth services coursework. Results indicate that technology plays a major role in both course content and delivery.
