Walking the Walk, Talking the Talk: A learning-centered approach to the design of a workshop on teaching for McGill Librarians

Amber Lannon, Sara Holder, April Colosimo

Abstract


McGill Library, in partnership with the University’s Teaching and Learning Services unit, offers a 1.5 day workshop for librarians on teaching theory and practice. In the (re)design of their information session, participants consider the context, content, desired learning outcomes, and strategies to facilitate and assess for learning, areas not covered in their formal education or in existing on-the-job training. The project team took a learning-centered approach to the design of the workshop, incorporating a variety of active learning exercises and providing opportunities for reflection and feedback throughout.
