MIX: Michigan Instruction Exchange

Bringing Together Michigan Academic Library Instructors 2012

Today’s college students are challenged to participate in an increasingly diverse and overwhelming information environment. Students engage with information resources in their classes, the workplace, and in their personal lives. Amid this deluge, how do we as library instructors determine what students need? How can we better relate with them?


The University of Michigan Library’s Instructor College hosted fellow academic library instructors from across the state of Michigan for Michigan Instruction Exchange (MIX) on August 10, 2012. This one day conference connected participants with academic library instructors from across the state in a conversation about student engagement and library instruction.

Program Highlights:

  • Keynote talk on student engagement in library instruction presented by Susan Gilroy of Harvard College Library [keynote video]
  • Faculty and library instructor panel on partnership in teaching curriculum and student engagement [panel video]
  • Library instruction lightning talks given by instructors from across the state [lightning talks video]
  • Networking with state of Michigan colleagues
