My experience as a faculty member using library and open educational resources to teach in a graduate instructional design program. Presented as part of a panel at American Library Association’s Annual Conference 2018 in New Orleans.
Our academic library’s tutorials program has dramatically scaled up the number of students that receive basic library instruction without requiring any additional librarian time beyond development and maintenance. This program gives students a thorough orientation to the library and the basics of doing library research using self-contained online tutorials with built-in assessment. For each tutorial completed with a 100% score (tutorials are repeatable), students earn a digital badge that is viewable in the learning management system by peers and faculty alike. The badges feature allows both librarians and campus instructors to confirm student completion and track who has mastered basic library and information literacy concepts. This program allows librarians to make better use of in-person time and helps to scale up library instruction on a campus of 40,000 students.
