Lesson Planning for the One-Shot

$250.00

Dates: October 7 - November 3
March 3 - March 30

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

This four-week course takes participants through the process of developing a lesson plan for a one-shot instruction session. While outlines and scripts serve as valuable tools, a well-structured lesson plan is instrumental in directing library instruction sessions toward achievable learning objectives within the allocated time. This approach not only enhances the effectiveness of the session but also ensures it is engaging and valuable. Lesson planning can be used whether a one-shot is five minutes or five hours – the framework is adaptable for any situation and setting.

The course introduces the lesson planning process, offering guidance on creating a lesson tailored to the unique dynamics of a one-shot instruction session. Librarians engaged in teaching one-shot lessons, workshops, or orientations across various library contexts, such as higher education information literacy sessions, special collections primary source analyses, or public library computer literacy workshops, will find the lesson planning process invaluable for refining their teaching practices.

Participants will learn the different components of a lesson plan and strategies for organizing these elements cohesively into a well-structured lesson. Participants will end the course with a customized lesson plan for an instruction session of their choice, and leave equipped with an adaptable framework to design effective lesson plans for the future.
