Description

The one-shot library instruction session remains a fixture in academic library instruction. At the same time, academic librarians are searching for ways to improve and maximize the effectiveness of t his type of session. Instructional methods such as the traditional lecture are no longer relevant in today's academic library classroom. Most academic librarians have not been prepared to teach in their Masters in Library Science (MLS) programs and must gain practical teaching skills on the job and through experience, mentorship, and collaboration. 'The Fortuitous Teacher: A Guide to Successful One-shot Library Instruction' has been written as a guide for academic instruction librarians, new librarians, and library science students to help them to prepare for and conduct successful one-shot library instruction sessions.
