Creating and Coordinating a Collaborative Workshop Program: Librarians and Writing Studio Coordinator Share Insights and Lessons Learned

Many librarians offer drop-in workshops and are looking for scalable ways to increase their library instruction and learning opportunities for students. We will share our experience developing a highly successful campus-wide co-curricular drop-in workshop series called SkillShops. In three years, our workshop program grew from a two-person team with a yearly attendance of 155 to more than 50 facilitators from over 20 departments across campus reaching 900 learners (and annual attendance over 1600).

Learn how we developed methods for creating and maintaining cross-campus relationships that meet the needs of the library, our partners and, most importantly, our students. One method is using Keller’s ARCS Model of Motivation (attention, relevance, confidence and satisfaction) as an instructional design tool that is simple yet effective in training facilitators with little to no previous instruction experience. With these methods the SkillShops facilitators (faculty, staff and students) have become an active collaborative team developing and modeling the creation of supportive learning environments.

With this session we will examine a case study of Instruction Librarians collaborating with the Director of the Writing Studio to train students as workshop peer-facilitators. We will also share training strategies and materials including lesson plan templates and the ARCS model and how it is used to coordinate and facilitate the campus-wide program. Participants will have the opportunity to critically analyze a workshop lesson plan in order to identify ways in which the model can be used to improve student motivation and learning.
