Instructional Skills for Health Sciences Librarians (Recorded Webinar)

Sponsored by The H. W. Wilson Foundation

This webinar has occurred, but you can view an on-demand recording on your PC or mobile device.

Health sciences librarians are called upon to teach regularly as a part of their daily work life. Instruction isn’t just limited to teaching a course; however, it could be as simple as effectively answering chat reference, email, or phone call, doing a short consultation for a researcher, highlighting apps on clinical rounds, or lecturing to a hall full of medical students or nurses. This webinar is designed for new and “new-to-teaching” librarians and will provide an overview of how to structure all kinds of teaching encounters, including writing objectives for formal sessions, methods to keep in-person and online lectures engaging and interesting, and tricks for supporting distance learning.
