Rename the SIG?

Please take this brief survey regarding changing the name of the BI SIG.





The Bibliographic Instruction Special Interest Group (SIG) is composed of individuals interested in various aspects of library instruction. Meetings throughout the year cover a wide range of instruction topics and offer important opportunities for networking and information sharing. The SIG also provides professional development opportunities through group discussion, and presentations by group members, vendors and others. Topics targeted for future meetings include instruction for targeted groups, distance learning and bibliographic instruction, developing assessment tools, and planning for the future needs of bibliographic instruction.


Upcoming Meetings

NEXT MEETING - November 6, 2013
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Lesson Plan Lab

Got a great activity idea for library instruction? Want to get it "on its feet" and gather feedback from other teaching librarians? Or are you simply interested in learning more about how your Bibliographic Instruction SIG colleagues are approaching lesson desing and facilitation? Come join us!

The plan is to break into small "fishbowl" groups to try out 10-minute versions of activities. Maybe you have a brand new idea, you're trying to adapt something to a new context, and/or you want to try your hand at some new mode of facilitation. Bring in your lesson plan, along with any handouts or props you'll need. Limited internet-connected laptops will be available. Finally, as a large group we'll discuss lesson design/facilitation strategies, adaptation to teaching contexts, and various challenges and issues. We hope to see you there!
