Over the past two years, the library has designed a set of evaluation forms for instruction sessions; over the course of fall semester, we generated reports on those evaluations for each instructor. At a workshop in late February, individual reports were given out and discussed. I want to give a sense of what we talked about in that meeting and to share some thoughts about evaluations and their uses for teaching.

On Thursday, March 17th, 2011, the Instructor College sponsored an informal panel discussion with three librarians -- Gabriel Duque, Rebecca Hill, and Karen Reiman-Sendi -- and Chad Hershock, an assistant director from the UM Center for Research on Learning and Teaching CRLT about the use of iClickers in library instruction.
On April 11 2011, Karen Reiman-Sendi led an Instructor College-sponsored brown bag discussion of using web-based guides in instruction, touching on the research literature surrounding the use of guides and our local data about patron use of guides. Attendees worked collaboratively to develop a list of best practice statements.
