Core webinar: Making the Most of One-Shot Instruction Sessions

Date: Tuesday, May 16, 2023

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description: In spite of the increasing complexity of the information
landscape and the importance of learning how to navigate it effectively,
one-shot sessions continue to be the primary format for teaching
information literacy classes. Librarians must consider how to integrate
faculty expectations and the expansive core concepts of the Framework for
Information Literacy into a single, limited time period. It can feel like a
struggle to create engaging and effective lessons. In spite of the
difficulties, librarians have found innovative ways to address the
one-shot’s constraints. In this webinar, participants will discuss options
and share effective and inventive ways to maximize the effect of the
infamous one-shot.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of this webinar, the attendees will be able to:


   Implement best practices for one-shot sessions.

   Formulate ideas for engaging students in the lesson.

   Learn tips for communicating with faculty about the lesson.
