The Librarian Leading the Machine: A Reassessment of Library Instruction Methods
Greer, Katie; Hess, Amanda Nichols; Kraemer, Elizabeth W.
College & Research Libraries, v77 n3 p286-301 May 2016
This article builds on the 2007 College and Research Libraries article, "The Librarian, the Machine, or a Little of Both." Since that time, Oakland University Libraries implemented changes to its instruction program that reflect larger trends in teaching and assessment throughout the profession; following these revisions, librarians undertook a new study to assess the effectiveness of online library instruction in face-to-face courses in comparison to the hybrid model that had been in place. The study's design and its results serve to contribute to discussion of best practices in information literacy pedagogy, online learning, instructional design, and the role of the librarian therein. Contains notes.
