Loudoun Library instruction staff have been participating in the Loudoun Library Summer Instruction Institute, a four-module professional development and discussion forum designed to introduce participants to new EdTech tools and get us thinking and talking about our teaching.
In Module 1, participants explored instructional design and lesson planning for librarians; Module 2 investigated strategies for engaging students; Module 3 delved into culturally responsive pedagogy, and the upcoming Module 4 will include an informal discussion of Chat GPT and a teaching demo from Maddie Quick, Loudoun’s Reference Specialist who just completed her MLS.
Each module includes pre-reading and related videos from educators, followed by an in-person discussion. Prior to the discussion, participants also complete a brief activity to jumpstart the conversations using an EdTech tool such as Padlet and Miro.
