Developing an Effective Mentoring Program

When: Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 1pm-2pm Central Standard Time

Register for this free event here

Description:

Library staff members, graduate students and librarians can benefit greatly from mentoring programs. Acting as a teacher and a guide to the real world, mentors have the opportunity to encourage and advise by sharing their experiences and knowledge with mentees who benefit greatly from individualized attention.  In this webinar, you will learn the many ways that mentoring programs can be structured and the benefits of each. In addition, librarians from UT-Austin will present their methods and approaches for mentoring graduate students new to library instruction as well as librarians with minimal teaching experience. They will also discuss a sustainable approach to a peer-mentoring program that can be adapted to any organization.

Presenters:

Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen, Wilsonville Campus Librarian at the Oregon Institute of Technology, has edited, written, and mentored/eed in a number of places. Through personal experience, committee participation, and research she has noticed a convergence on mentoring in the last couple of years. In 2015 she guest edited the Fall Oregon Library Association Quarterly on Mentoring, and in 2016 she edited the book, “Beyond Mentoring: A guide for librarians and information professionals.”

Sarah Brandt, Librarian for First-Year Programs at the University of Texas at Austin, teaches information literacy skills in the undergraduate core curriculum and works with the School of Undergraduate Studies to incorporate information literacy into a variety of programs.  She mentors graduate students to teach first year students and supports subject liaison librarians in their teaching.

Elise Nacca, Head of Information Literacy Services at the University of Texas at Austin, manages a unit that integrates information literacy skills into the first-year curriculum and supports subject liaison librarians in their teaching.  She developed and managed a peer mentoring program for library staff who teach.  

Krystal Wyatt-Baxter, Head of Assessment at the University of Texas at Austin, is now in a role focusing on assessment.  In her previous role, she taught first year students and mentored graduate students into teaching roles.

Online Doc Checklist for reviewing the Standards for Proficiencies for Instruction Librarians and Coordinators

by Meghan Sitar on Mon, Jun 9, 2014 at 01:55 pm

Hi all,

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.
