THE PRACTICING PEDAGOGIES: SUMMER TEACHING SUMMIT
The Practicing Pedagogies: Summer Teaching Summit is a two-day retreat for teaching librarians and staff to grow as teachers, develop teaching materials, and document their teaching theory and practice. This summer, librarians from across the Nebraska system will come together to address this gap in professional development opportunities for teaching librarians and, at the same, develop a community of practice around teaching and learning so that development continues beyond the retreat.
The Practicing Pedagogies: Summer Teaching Summit will provide an opportunity for librarians to hear from colleagues on pertinent issues relating to teaching theory and practice, facilitate discussion about information literacy teaching and learning, and support networking amongst teaching librarians throughout the Nebraska system.
During the sessions, we have provided the opportunity for us to collaborate on our note taking by using a common notes page. Feel free to write your notes, thoughts or questions on the page anytime during or after the session.
SUMMIT SESSION REFLECTION
After each session, use our Session Reflection Form to let us know what you think, and help us plan other teaching professional development sessions.
"I found it useful to practice putting backward design into practice for a theoretical course thinking through the design and assessment was helpful for me to rethink how I'll confront my future courses."
"A great run-through on designing effective assessment, and the diagnostic/formative/summative framework will be helpful in assessing my current material."
Helpful to have the handout presenting the main points and activities. Provided some broader concepts of the nature and character of assessment. I liked how she modeled presenting a concept and then having a discuss for a bit."
"Reminder to always review SLOs and look
out if I'm actually assessing them in each class."
"Many of the tips and tricks even if I don't use the exact tip - I can already think of variations that I would like to tryI liked the description of how be based a 10-week info literary class on the ACRL framework. I will definitely review the Framework before I teach my next one-shot."
"I came away with a couple of ideas and actions
that can help refine my teaching activity and goals."
"The presentation on teaching portfolio was inspirational and encouraged me to not only develop and improve my teaching but to make it more of a focus in terms of my larger job responsibilities.
