Teaching Toolkit

a professional development resource for liaison librarians at Brock University

Our Teaching

This section of the toolkit contains information about the teaching profiles, reporting library instruction statistics, and Brock documents concerning teaching and learning.

Keeping Track 

All liaison librarians engaged in instruction record sessions in an internal library form. Information collected includes librarian name, class, instructor name, date, number of students, form of instruction (in person or online), and any additional documents the librarian might wish to also post to the form. Individual research consultations are tracked using a separate form.

Library Teaching Profiles 

The Teaching Profiles provide a snapshot of where in the curriculum library instruction has taken place. Their purpose is to serve as a foundation for conversations with faculty about where instruction might best fit in the future. By charting which classes have requested sessions, faculty and librarians can plot a course forward that reduces the same students having multiple sessions at similar levels and that focuses library instruction where it might be best suited.

The Teaching Profiles also serve as a library curriculum map to the Undergraduate and Graduate Degree Level Expectations
