CHICAGOJoin Core on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT for the webinar “Making the Most of One-Shot Instruction Sessions.” In spite of the increasing complexity of the information landscape and the importance of learning how to navigate it effectively, one-shot sessions continue to be the primary format for teaching information literacy classes. Librarians must consider how to integrate faculty expectations and the expansive core concepts of the Framework for Information Literacy into a single, limited time period. It can feel like a struggle to create engaging and effective lessons, but despite the difficulties, librarians have found innovative ways to address the one-shot’s constraints. In this webinar, participants will discuss options and share effective and inventive ways to maximize the effect of the infamous one-shot.
