Teaching in the Library
Recorded: September 18, 2018
As librarians, we are in the business of supporting people. Today, many of our responsibilities include helping people find information, showing them how to use a new technology tool, and connecting them to resources. Due to these responsibilities, we often serve in the role of teacher, coach, and/or facilitator. However, many of us are not trained to be teachers. Therefore, knowing how people learn can help us grow professionally and better serve our communities.
