While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations, we focus primarily on the kinds of skills that library schools expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually turn out to require additional study. These workshops earn Continuing Education Units, and are intended as professional development activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate as your own schedule allows.

Crash Course in Assessing Library Instruction

Crash Course in Assessing Library Instruction
Instructors: Candice Benjes-Small and Eric Ackermann
Dates: April 2nd to 27th, 2018
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
Price: $175
This class is intended for teaching librarians who have some classroom experience and would like to explore different assessment techniques in library sessions, such as one-shots. Using Kirkpatrick’s Levels of Evaluation as a framework, we will discuss how to identify what you want to know and how to match your assessment need to the appropriate assessment technique, and practice assessing student artifacts using a sampling of methods.  For each module, we will also discuss strategies for closing the assessment loop.
By the end of the class, participants will be able to:
– Identify student learning objectives which are reachable and meaningful for the participants’ setting
– Match the learning objective to the appropriate level of evaluation
– Select and apply the appropriate assessment technique for the stated need
– Communicate the benefits and challenge of specific assessment techniques
This four-week course will be asynchronous, but participants should plan to meet weekly deadlines.
This course can be taken as one of the elective courses in our eight-course Certificate in Library Instruction, but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
Candice Benjes-Small is Professor, Head of Information Literacy and Outreach and University Information Literacy Coordinator at Radford University in Radford, VA. As Head of Information Literacy she oversees a team of five instruction librarians who teach 400+ library sessions each academic year. Since 2009, she has also been an instructor of record every semester for two critical thinking courses that are required as part of general education. She has collaborated with Eric Ackerman on numerous instruction assessment projects, culminating in articles in Reference Services Review and Academic Exchange Quarterly, and presentations at ACRL and LOEX.
Eric Ackermann is Associate Professor, Head of Reference Services and Library Assessment at Radford University in Radford, VA. Eric received his BA and MA in History from the University of Alabama in Birmingham, and his MSIS from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. As the assessment librarian he coordinates the library level assessment projects for the university assessment office and for internal use. Since 2005 Eric has administered the LibQUAL+ service quality survey five times and participated in piloting the LibQUAL+ Lite and Triads protocols. He is currently collaborating with his librarian colleagues to create a library-wide culture of assessment, while editing an Assessment in Action casebook for ACRL.
You can register in this course through the first week of instruction (as long as it is not full). The “Register” button on the website goes to our credit card payment gateway, which may be used with personal or institutional credit cards. (Be sure to use the appropriate billing address).
