Ready or Not, You Will Teach, and Here Is How You Can Get Ready!
Webinar Date: Wednesday,
March 27, 2013, 2:00pm-3:00pm (EDT)
This webinar on the teaching responsibilities of academic librarians is offered at the urgings of observers who note two things: academic librarians do lots of teaching and many academic librarians approach this task with little training in teaching. Therefore, this session will examine those aspects of Information Literacy (IL) that impact teaching responsibilities—the “so what?” of the Google Age, the proficiencies academic librarians must acquire in order to make IL happen, and the partnerships with faculty that academic librarians must forge. The webinar will present some specific recommendations for professors who train MLIS students to be academic librarians and for the MLIS students, themselves.
Dr. Charles Curran is a native of Pittsburgh, PA, who has earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Duquesne University, and the MLS and PhD from Rutgers. At the University of South Carolina he was awarded an MA in theatre in May, 2012. His work experience includes service in public, school, and academic libraries. His teaching experience includes service since 1974 on the faculty of the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS), University of South Carolina, and visiting/adjunct appointments at several universities, including Rutgers, the University of Southern California, the University of Washington, the University of Wisconsin, and Clarion University. His interest in teaching as a performing art factors heavily in his course for doctoral students at SLIS, a course in which the central focus is on practice.
