Reaching Over the Fence: Building Partnerships With New Teaching Neighbors
Miller, Rebecca K.
MetadataShow full item record
As more contingent faculty, graduate teaching assistants, and other new instructors move into the instructional neighborhood, librarians face a familiar challenge: collaborating with teaching and learning partners who may be unfamiliar with information literacy and librarians’ roles. This interactive workshop empowers participants to move beyond these potential barriers and reach over the fence in order to support our neighbors. Participants will work collaboratively to discuss the unique needs of contingent faculty, develop strategies for building productive partnerships, and analyze a sample scenario in order to reflect on application of these ideas to their own instruction programs.
