Webinar: Collective Learning: Developing an Instruction Community of Practice

The ACRL Instruction Section Management & Leadership Committee is excited to announce the second in our series of three online professional development opportunities of interest to instruction coordinators and librarians with instruction responsibilities.

Collective Learning: Developing an Instruction Community of Practice:

WhenWednesday, April 11 from 1:00-2:00 pm (CST)



Communities of Practice within academic libraries can provide opportunities for teaching librarians to intentionally develop strategies, confidence, and creativity while building camaraderie and teamwork skills. This online panel discussion will highlight recent efforts to establish communities of practice and recount both the successes and challenges encountered. Participants will learn more about instruction communities of practice and gather ideas that may be taken back to their institutions.
