ACRL IS Management and Leadership Committee (Instruction Section) Committee
Often with little managerial power, instruction coordinators are responsible for leading information literacy programs that encompass diverse disciplinary needs and individual teaching styles. We will examine challenges faced by library instructors and coordinators, and explore opportunities for pedagogical development and programmatic consistency. Models of shared development, such as communities of practice, encourage library instructors to grow together as teachers and learners.
Malia Willey has focused much of her scholarship on library instructor development. She is the Humanities Librarian and liaison to History and Philosophy & Religion at James Madison University. She was formerly the Instruction Coordinator at Loyola University New Orleans and a co-founder of the NOLA Information Literacy Collective. She has a MA in History from the University of Maine and a MLS from Indiana University.
I'm adding this here as a back-up for its inclusion elsewhere. This is the checklist document created by the Standards Review Task Force this year to guide the process in the future. Part of their charge asked them to do this. It's been added on the IS website and in their Connect space, but since this committee has responsibilities for promoting the Standards and the review won't come up again for five years, I wanted to add it here, too, with the hope that this duplication might help people remember it exists. No action needed on your part.
