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).
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.
Each session will focus on one pedagogy selected from faculty suggestions and interests.
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 •
Current ideas for sessions include informed learning, embodied pedagogy, assessment, situated learning, active teaching and learning, gamification, flipped learning, problem based learning, and backward curriculum design. Have other ideas? Please share them below!
Summer Teaching Summit 2019
Plans are underway for our second teaching summit to be held at UNL Love Library May 2019
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.
After each session we would like you to complete our Reflection Form. This will help us know if these sessions are helpful and also guide us in future planning.
