April 19                (10-11:30 am) / The LYRASIS Polite Debate Society Presents:  Teaching the Tough Stuff: Exploring the Librarian's Most Difficult Instructional Challenges (Lyrasis)
No matter what we call it-BI, programming, information literacy/fluency, user education-the instructional role of the librarian is challenging, but rewarding. Many of us approach instruction with little to no formal training in "how to teach." We work hard in order to figure it out, we consult our colleagues and friends to discover "what works?" -yet several concepts--the mechanics of searching, plagiarism, scholarly discourse-- remain consistently elusive, and are therefore regularly addressed in professional forums... While these topics are frequently discussed, they are still challenging to solve. Through our reasoned and polite debate, we will discover great ideas to implement in the classroom, and identify deeper issues to discuss-such as developing a personal pedagogy, the role of teaching partners like faculty, teachers, volunteers and others, and the best tools and resources available to guide us as we work to become better teachers.
