Practicing Pedagogies: Practicing Pedagogies 2016

The purpose of the series is to help faculty foster a collaborative peer review approach to information literacy instruction and course development.

PRACTICING PEDAGOGIES: What Is It?

THE PRACTICING PEDAGOGY SERIES
The Practicing Pedagogy Series provides teaching support for library faculty and staff and is designed to help us foster a collaborative peer review approach to information literacy curriculum development and instruction (IL). The sessions will help us integrate IL into established courses and projects; develop new workshops and IL sessions; and provide  strategies for collaborating with teaching faculty. 

The series consists of  bi-monthly pedagogy sessions focusing on teaching and learning. Each session highlights a specific pedagogy or pedagogical practice, involves discussing theories and modeling the pedagogy, and provides opportunities for individual or group teaching development (e.g., course/lesson/workshop or teaching tool).

PRACTICING PEDAGOGIES: What Can I Expect?

THE SESSIONS
During each session, faculty and staff will (1) discuss and critique pedagogical approaches to teaching IL and (2) rework existing or develop new teaching materials and activities informed by a range of pedagogical theories and practice. Faculty and staff will participate in conversations about teaching and learning and will engage in small group discussion and collaborative instruction development.

THE FOCUS
Each session will focus on one pedagogy  selected from faculty suggestions and interests.

THE TOPICS

These will be selected from faculty suggestions and interests. Current suggestions • Informed learning • Embodied pedagogy • Situated Learning • Active Teaching and Learning • Flipped Learning • Problem Based Learning• Game Based Learning •
