Not Throwing Away My One-Shot:

Implementing Critical Information Literacy Pedagogy in One-Shot Instruction

Sometimes librarians only get one shot to connect with their users in instruction sessions. How can staff make the most of these one-shot sessions and still incorporate critical pedagogy? Explore this question in a conversation with a panel of library and information science staff, and in a hands-on discussion workshop.

Critical pedagogy in librarianship means providing users with an understanding of the power structures behind information production and with the research skills and thought processes to find resources that go beyond the peer-reviewed journal, to include content from diverse contexts, nontraditional media, or other valuable materials outside the typical publishing hierarchy.

This event will feature a round-table panel discussion with an introduction to the concept of critical pedagogy and how to incorporate these ideals into one-shot instruction sessions. Explore the challenges librarians face in incorporating critical pedagogy into their educational services and learn more about the strategies for overcoming these obstacles.

Panelists include: Dawn Cadogan and Caro Pinto, chapter authors for the ACRL Handbook of Critical Library Pedagogy, Shanti Freudlich the Online and Educational Technologies Librarian at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Maric Kramer the Academic Outreach Librarian for the Social Sciences at Brandeis University, and Dawn Stahura the Research and Instruction Librarian for Social Sciences and Zine Librarian at Simmons College.

This is a half day event:
9:00 - 9:30am - Registration and refreshments
9:30 - 12:00pm - Program - Including round-table conversation and hands-on discussion workshop
