Current Instruction/IL Initiatives

  • WR 121 - online component addressing topic exploration, context, focus, key concepts, initial identification of resources
  • subject-based instruction - face-to-face instruction across all disciplines usually requested at department or program level (e.g. grad dept orientations)
  • course-based instruction - face-to-face instruction across all disciplines usually requested by teaching faculty
  • online instruction via learning objects, Library a la Carte topic pages, tutorials
  • topic/tool/resource-based instruction offered by Library (e.g. grad workshops, faculty workshops)

SWOT Analysis of Instruction/IL Initiatives 

internal

STRENGTHS
instruction "dept"
competencies
liaison teaching relationships/standing opportunities
willingness of librarians to be involved in different kinds of teaching opportunities (grad student workshops, ICAs, etc...)
some web programming support

WEAKNESSES
lack of cohesive program (including training for new librarians)
librarian burn out 
little (no?) data
not enough web programming support to do some new things (online tutorial)
web presence

external

OPPORTUNITIES
 involve WR GTAs
other campus-wide requirements (wic, synthesis, etc.)
Relationship with CWL for grad student options

THREATS
 "victims" of success (WR 121)
no institution/curriculum-level mandates


Proposed Outcomes for Bend Retreat (brainstorm)

  • Plan for more cohesive instruction
    • including timeline for what we could accomplish in the next 6-12 months
    • including some specific outcomes (based on the competencies) that we want to teach
    • including plans for assessment
  • Clarity for how we work together as the OSU Libraries instruction program
  • Incorporate emerging technologies idea into outcomes of Strategic Goal 2 (this would seem to fit into what is called for in Strategy A, Action d.  Develop innovative delivery methods for instruction in library research)

What Do We Have Now?

Requests for Library Instruction: Guidelines: http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/instruction/request.htm**This isn't linked from the main page?

Also, http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/instruction/ - this isn't linked from the homepage either (a little history - there used to be an instruction link from the homepage but it was removed in the redesign.  I am assuming this was sorted through in the usability testing phase, but AMD could clarify.  I am guessing there is a good reason it was removed - maybe something related to -did this link do what our users thought it should?).
