LILAC Spring Workshop: One Shot Wellness Exam
LILAC’s Spring Workshop is on Friday, June 9th, 1pm-4pm at Guttman Community College [goo.gl] in Manhattan. Our theme is “The One Shot Wellness Exam” and we are taking as inspiration a recent issue of College & Research Libraries [crl.acrl.org] dedicated to one shot library instruction. Although it remains the core of library instruction programs, many librarians feel ambivalence toward the one shot. A variety of perspectives is represented in C&RL and LILAC’s Spring Workshop will feature an introductory panel discussion, facilitated conversations about specific articles (no advance reading required!), and an opportunity to socialize and enjoy refreshments with colleagues. The event will feature three facilitated discussions on the following articles:
- Library Tautology: A Reenactment of the One-Shot by Nora Almeida; facilitated by Julie Turley, Kingsborough Community College (in person breakout room)
- It Doesn’t Matter How Many “Doses”: One-Shots Aren’t Cures by Michele Santamaria and Jessica Schomberg; facilitated by Emma Antobam-Ntedukzi, Bronx Community College (Hybrid break out room)
- The power of presence: One-shots, relational teaching, and Instruction Librarianship by Veronica Arellano Douglas, Joanna Gadsby; facilitated by Letitia Hazell, Baruch College (Online break out room)
Don’t miss this exciting event! Please register in advance. We may even walk across the street to Bryant Park afterward and hang out! We hope to see you on June 9 and please feel free to reach out with any questions.
