PC1. Librarians’ Secret Identity as Instructional Designer (ID): Mission Possible? (3 hours)

A session at SUNYLA 2013

Wednesday 12th June, 2013

1:30pm to 4:45pm (EST)

Are you currently involved in planning lessons toward information literacy efforts? Do you use technology in your teaching to actively engage students in the learning process? Do you collaborate with professors to connect their specific content to non-disciplinary concepts/skills (e.g., information literacy)? If you answered yes to any of these, you might be a secret ID agent without even knowing it. In this hands-on workshop, we will expose your inner ID, setting you on a course where existing skills align with the greater mission of promoting and assisting faculty in the creation of learning environments that are collaborative, engaging and technologically rich. Your mission - should you choose to accept - will include brainstorming, group work, self-reflection, discussion, and scenario-based problem solving.


  • Identify existing instructional design aptitudes and skills that translate librarianship to pedagogical consultant
  • Using pre-existing ID activities, brainstorm ways in which to build capacity and recognition for instructional design efforts across campus
  • Develop a plan for library-based instructional design that considers individual campus cultures, institutional partners and key library colleagues
