An instruction coordinator does more than just oversee the entire department of instruction librarians. The role also requires you to function as the assessment lead, training and directing the tone of how instruction will be taught, performed, and evaluated, as well as perform outreach to departments and faculty outside the library to find ways to make connections for future instruction. Tasked with the position when a colleague was on a sabbatical, here Bagley has written the guide she wishes she’d had from the very beginning. In a concise, straightforward manner she outlines exactly what you need to know as a new instruction coordinator, including
- an overview of library instruction and the primary stakeholders;
- guidance on key duties such as training, management, communications, and assessment;
- instruction coordinator best practices drawn from librarians working in a range of settings;
- a chapter on technology management, with advice on selecting and keeping technology up to date; and
- tips on how to integrate what you’ve learned into your program.
Bagley presents the perfect primer for instruction coordinators at all levels of experience, from those who may have had little prior supervisory or management experience to those who simply want a refresher on new methods.
