Keeping the User in Mind provides a practical down-to-earth look at instructional design and its uses in the academic library. Focus is given to teaching and measuring information literacy skills, and chapters also review the history of the field, providing an overview of some relevant technological innovations that might be a part of any library's instructional design mosaic. Fuelled by the need for asynchronous learning, the availability of the Web, and the need to evaluate learning outcomes, instructional design covers a wide range of approaches and models. How do libraries build environments that support learning, encourage the infusion of technology and be nimble enough to adjust to changing user needs? Instructional design is an area that may provide some insight. This book will provide a down-to-earth look at instructional design and its uses in the academic library, with a particular look at teaching and measuring information literacy skills. Chapters also review the history of the field, and provide an overview of some current relevant technological innovations that might be a part of any library's instructional design mosaic.
