Martinique is back from leave, and we’re back on the air! In this episode, Martinique and Jen talk about how librarians learn to teach, what kind of barriers librarians experience when they teach, how we know if we’re “good” teachers, and what proper preparation for librarians who teach might look like.
Tell us about your experiences! How did you learn to teach? What role do librarians have to play in their own teaching successes and failures? What should librarians learn in graduate school about teaching? We’d love to hear from you!
Our conversation was inspired by a post from Meredith Farkas on Information Wants to Be Free called “The ballad of the sad instruction librarian“.
We also talk about a subsequent Twitter thread from @SarahEHare with more thoughts.
