Outcome 4c

Demonstrate teaching and learning principles in relation to professional practice.

This assignment, for LIS 702 Facilitating User Information and Learning Needs, was to create a short (20 minutes) educational program that could be taught within the context of a library and to develop a formal lesson plan for it. In addition, there is a video explainer of the lesson plan, illustrating the specific materials used and the flow of the lesson.

This class, with its focus on educational theory and technique, greatly expanded my understanding of the profession of librarianship; these are aspects of the field that I had thought deeply about before beginning my MLIS program. I discovered in the course of doing this work that I had more of an interest in these areas of practice than I realized; because of this, this assignment is one that I found very gratifying.
