Summary : The Academic Teaching Librarian’s Handbook is a comprehensive resource for academic library professionals and LIS students looking to pursue a teaching role in their work and to develop this aspect of their professional lives in a holistic way throughout their careers. The book is built around the core ideas of reflective self-development and informed awareness of one’s personal professional landscape. Through engaging with a series of exercises and reflective pauses in each chapter, readers are encouraged to reflect on their professional identity, self-image, self-efficacy and progress as they consider each of the different aspects of the teaching role. This handbook will: - provide a comprehensive resource on teaching, professional development and reflective practice for academic teaching librarians at all stages of their careers - explore the current landscape of teaching librarianship in higher education, and highlight the important developments, issues and trends that are shaping current and future practice - examine the roles and responsibilities of the academic teaching librarian in the digital era - introduce the essential areas of development, skill and knowledge that will empower current and future professionals in the role - inspire prospective and current academic teaching librarians to adopt a broad conception of the role that goes beyond the basic idea of classroom-based teaching, and provide practical tools to engage in personal development and career planning in this area. The Academic Teaching Librarian’s Handbook is an indispensable reference, suitable for early career professionals at the start of their teaching journey, as well as mid- or late-career librarians who may have moved into leadership and managerial roles and who wish to advance their teaching role to the next level.

Summary : This volume explores teacher and librarian partnerships in literacy education, showing that such partnerships are essential to literacy education in 21st century. Teacher and librarian partnerships contribute significantly to the realization of the democratic mandate of the teaching and library profession. Partnerships respond to the educational challenges characterized by an unprecedented pace of knowledge development, digitalization, globalization and extensive transnational migration. The contributors reconceptualize literacy education based on teacher and librarian partnerships. Studies from Sweden, Norway and the U.K. analyze such partnerships as sociocultural and intercultural practices, documenting ways in which teacher and librarian partnerships in literacy education enhance reading literacy, learning, empowerment and social justice. The authors treat literacies as social practices, rather than as an autonomous skill, working with interdisciplinary perspectives that draw on educational research, New Literacy Studies, library and information science and interprofessional studies. Partnerships facilitate reading for pleasure and reading engagement in work with school subjects and curriculum goals, irrespective of socio-economic or cultural background or gender. The partnerships facilitate work with multimodal literacies and inquiry-based learning, both of which are essential in the 21st century. Equally important, the contributors show that the partnerships foster work with the multiple literacies of students and communities, and students’ attachment to the public and school library. The contributors also analyze tensions and contradictions in literacy education and in school library policy and practice, and attempts to deal with these challenges. Teacher and Librarian Partnerships in Literacy Education in the 21st Century brings together leading scholars in educational research and literacy studies, including Brian V. Street, Teresa Cremin, Joan Swann and Joron Pihl. The volume addresses scholars, and is relevant for students, teachers, librarians and politicians.

Summary : This research study explored, tracked, and presented findings of how the Collaborative Program Planning, Teaching and Evaluation process was used for curriculum development in an elementary school in Prince Edward Island, Canada. A teacher-librarian, two classroom teachers, and a technology teacher used the CPPT model to develop, implement, teach, and evaluate two resource-based learning projects within a school library program. Through an action research approach, the study employed several data collection tools: participant and direct observations, interviews with four educators and eight students, curriculum document analysis, and a researcher's reflective journal. Key findings resulting from observations and interview transcripts are reported under the following themes: CPPT Process: Planning Sessions, Implementation and Teaching of Projects, and Evaluation/Assessment, Benefits and Barriers to the CPPT Process, Student Learning, Information Literacy, The Role of the Teacher-Librarian, and Student Interviews. Discussions and the implications for education and teacher collaboration highlighted the curriculum leadership role of the teacher-librarian.

Summary : Every librarian who teaches in an academic library setting understands the complexities involved in partnering with teaching faculty. Relationships Between Teaching Faculty and Teaching Librarians recounts the efforts of librarians and faculty working together in disciplines across the board to create and sustain connections crucial to the success of library instruction. This unique collection of essays examines various types of partnerships between librarians and faculty (networking, coordination, and collaboration) and addresses the big issues involved, including teaching within an academic discipline, the intricacies of assigning grades, faculty perceptions of library instruction, and the changing role of the reference librarian. Education is the main focus of reference service in today's academic libraries and librarians teach a variety of single-session, course-related, course-integrated, or credit-bearing courses in nearly every discipline. Relationships Between Teaching Faculty and Teaching Librarians reflects the experiences of librarians, teaching faculty, and library directors, whose perspectives range from cynicism to cautious optimism to idealism when it comes to working with teaching faculty. The book includes case studies, surveys, sample questionnaires, statistics, and a toolkit for establishing an effective library liaison program, and examines the teaching and learning environment, course growth and maintenance, and the “professor librarian” model. Relationships Between Teaching Faculty and Teaching Librarians presents lessons learned from seeking a common ground including: a successful faculty/librarian collaboration for educational psychology and counseling a library research project for freshman engineering students a semester-by-semester look at a collaboratively taught graduate research and writing course a survey that determines how librarians and library directors feel about teaching outside the library an analysis of librarians’ attitudes toward faculty an analysis of attitudes that influence faculty collaboration in library instruction a look at innovative methods of increasing the teaching roles of librarians and much more! The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSA/CHE) has mandated that information literacy be included as part of a general education requirement. If your faculty wasn't calling for library instruction before the mandate, it probably is now. Relationships Between Teaching Faculty and Teaching Librarians will help librarians establish communication with faculty that provides a solid foundation for coursework in all disciplines.
