This course will introduce participants to basic educational theory, and guide them in using that theory to structure a lesson around their chosen content. Throughout the course, participants will learn the different parts of a basic lesson plan, how to organize those pieces into a final lesson, practice conducting the lesson, and reflect on the process. Librarians will not only become grounded in instructional theory, but they will immediately apply the knowledge to an instructional setting, and leave with an adaptable framework for developing effective lessons in the future.
