Teacher Librarian

I had an incredible, theoretical, intellectual and completely fun discussion with fellow librarian Jennifer Ballance.   We spend a lot of time discussing learning theories, pedagogies, etc and how librarians gain these skills.  We all know K-12 librarians learn many of these skills; however, public, special, and academic librarians all need them as well.  Lets even take it out of the library – information specialists are often called upon to teach various research and technology skills.  Where does this leave us?  Our research will figure it out :-).

Seriously, we know that being an expert in a subject does not necessarily make us a teacher in that subject…how do we teach, how do people learn?  What types of self-reflection do we engage in when we do teach a class?

We have lots of questions and are beginning to find the answers…stay tuned…
