Education Training for Instruction Librarians: A Shared Perspective
Brecher, Dani; Klipfel, Kevin Michael
Communications in Information Literacy, v8 n1 p43-49 2014
This article provides an overview of recent literature illustrating a troubling disconnect between (a) the importance of teaching and information literacy instruction for the future of libraries and (b) the apparent lack of education training many librarians receive during library school. We argue that it is essential for the future success of academic libraries that library schools pay greater attention to instructional pedagogy for training library leaders of the future. We then outline several practical strategies drawn from our own experience that library school students and currently practicing professionals can adopt to expand their understanding of instructional pedagogy as a way to improve their practice as teaching librarians.
