The Instruction work group develops and recommends pedagogical practices and student learning outcomes for instruction on the use of the discovery system. The work group identifies challenges and opportunities that arise while teaching with the discovery system and provides recommendations based on the identified shared needs, experiences, and practices of librarians across the colleges. The work group is responsible for maintenance of the LSP Instruction Resources Canvas course which includes instructional materials and courseware connected to the discovery system. Major considerations of the group include the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Instruction, the unique configurations of each college’s discovery system, and the close intersection of user experience and instruction. The recommendations from and projects pursued by the work group will be guided by our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and accessibility as outlined in the LSP DEIAA statement.
