Librarians often serve as instructional designers
for library-related training workshops. Sometimes librarians assume
audience knowledge without doing needs assessment or instructional
content analysis, the "front end" of instructional design.
Those assumptions might not be accurate, leading to a disappointing
training experience for all. This workshop will review reasons for
a training needs analysis and major steps. A brief overview of educational
theory will explain why needs assessment is so important, and hands-on
small group activities will provide the how of needs assessment.
Participants are invited to bring information about workshops they
have designed or are designing.
