Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries Forum (IACRL)

Library instruction is like a theatre performance. You play a role as the instruction librarian. There is a live audience. You may receive reviews or evaluations. Or maybe the teaching experience feels more like an audition—a bit unnerving. Based on their recently published book, The Craft of Librarian Instruction: Using Acting Techniques to Create Your Teaching Presence, join Julie Artman, Jeff Sundquist, and Doug Dechow for a fun and creative approach to library instruction as they reveal how acting techniques can hone your presentation skills, your teaching style, and your performance to create an invigorating (and stress-free) learning experience for your students. The session will take place from 1:00 to 2:30 PM CST on Wednesday, September 7. Complete webcast details and registration materials are available online. Contact Margot Conahan, at or (312) 280-2522, with questions.
