Faculty Teaching and Librarian-Facilitated Assignment Design
Wishkoski, Rachel; Lundstrom, Kacy; Davis, Erin
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v19 n1 p95-126 Jan 2019
This qualitative study explores the impact of a workshop on collaborative research assignment design that brought together an interdisciplinary group of faculty in a librarian-facilitated community of practice. Faculty participants attended the workshop, revised and implemented their assignments, and completed a follow-up interview. Themes that emerged reflected shifts in faculty teaching practices, including increased scaffolding, clarity, modeling, student collaboration, and opportunities for authentic learning. Gaining insight into how faculty approach the work of teaching directly impacts library instruction and how librarians can contribute to communities of practice among teachers in the academy.
