This discussion, led by Frances May and Dr. Yunfei Du, both of the University of North Texas, will provide attendees with the opportunity to discuss strategies for measuring the success of library instruction, as well as methods for publicizing and sharing the impact and importance of instructional assessment outcomes.
In addition, instruction librarians may be interested in the following discussion forum hosted by the ACRL Information Literacy Web Site Committee:
ACRL Information Literacy Web Site Discussion Forum
Saturday, January 21, 1:30-3:30, Sheraton (SHER) San Antonio Ballroom B
Topic: Are You Being Served?
Your opinion counts! Please join your colleagues at the ACRL Information Literacy Web Site Discussion Forum to help restructure the Information Literacy Web Site! The IL site is intended to be a “one-stop shop” for librarians and others to learn about information literacy, and to connect with resources that enhance teaching, learning, and research in the higher education community. The Information Literacy Web Site Committee will share results from a preliminary needs analysis survey conducted last summer before turning to the main purpose of the forum–fostering conversations on how to improve our site to best serve your needs.
