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.

*Jessica will be presenting with Paul Stenis, who we’ll highlight next week!  Stay tuned!

A little bit about Jessica:

Jessica Elaine Moad comes from the Great Plains, but considers herself a citizen of the world. In 2010 she obtained a MLS from Indiana University with specializations in Digital Libraries and Archives and Records Management. After obtaining her degree, she returned to the Plains and to her love of teaching and helping others by working as a Reference and Instructional Services Librarian at her alma mater, the University of Central Oklahoma. Jessica enjoys lots of things, like painting, beading, playing tennis, photography, writing short stories, digitizing her collections, playing with her family and dog, traveling, and analyzing advertising, books, music, historical documents, and film.

We asked Jessica a few questions:

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

I decided to present at this year’s unCOILed workshop because as an instruction librarian, I really enjoy teaching, and this year’s unCOILed workshop is a great way to spread the knowledge that I have gained as a new librarian.

2.  How long have you been a librarian?

I think I’ve been a librarian since I was about five years old, but I’ve been paid as one for less than a year.

3.  What is your favorite thing about instruction?

I really enjoy learning new things every time I teach a session.

Thank you, Jessica!  We’re looking forward to your presentation on July 22nd, at unCOILed 2011: Get Schooled!
