Thursday, June 2, 2011

Hello, readers!  Welcome to the third installment of out Meet-The-Presenter Series here on the COIL Blog.  In the past few weeks we’ve met David Oberhelman and Jessica Moad.  Today we’ll introduce you to Paul Stenis!

Remember, Preregistration for unCOILed 2011: Get Schooled is now open!  Sign up to see these wonderful speakers in action.

Five Birds with One Stone: Long- and Short-term Planning for Library Instruction

Paul and Jessica will discuss the various issues that arise while planning for instruction sessions, including communication with professors, script writing, creating assignments, and using blogs, LibGuides, and wikis. Attendees will split up into groups, be given several scenarios, and will plan for those scenarios.

*Paul will be presenting with Jessica Moad, who we highlighted last week.  

Here’s a little bit about Paul:

By night Paul Stenis is a champion of the library and an information science super hero. By day he teaches info lit at the UCO Library. Previously, he had heroic stints as a freshman comp teacher, technology trainer, and textbook editor. Unlike other librarians, he likes to read.

We asked Paul a few questions:

1.  What made you want to present at this years unCOILed Workshop?

The unCOILED workshop is a great opportunity to share ideas, learn from colleagues, and try out new jokes.

2.  How long have you been a librarian?

I’ve been a librarian since 2009. My family has not yet intervened.

3.  What is your favorite thing about instruction?

I love interacting with students; the more I do that, the more I learn. When the booing is finally over, the emotional scars heal in time.

Thank you for your responses and sense of humor, Paul! We’re really looking forward to your presentation on July 22nd, at unCOILed 2011: Get Schooled!
