Do you want to share your professional library instruction experience? Do you want to lead and build a relationship with a new colleague? Feel the need for some professional mentoring? Do you feel you need to develop your library instruction skills, methods, and resources more fully? Then consider becoming a mentor or mentee for the 2015-2016 ACRL/IS Mentoring Program!
The purpose of the ACRL Instruction Section Mentoring Program is to contribute to the professional development of academic librarians who teach information literacy by pairing librarians experienced in teaching with librarians new to instruction or to the Instruction Section. Mentors should have a passion for instruction and experience in this field. Mentees should be librarians seeking to improve their instruction skills and knowledge. In order to create mentor/mentee pairs by the beginning of the Fall Semester, we ask that you fill out our online application by September 15, 2015.
This program creates a forum for learning opportunities, networking, and the exchange of ideas between paired mentors and mentees about instruction and information literacy.Conference attendance is not required. In fact, much of the mentoring takes place outside of scheduled conferences. You can advance your expertise and help the profession into the future by joining the ACRL/IS Mentoring Program. Please apply!
If you have questions about the ACRL Instruction Section Mentoring Program, please contact the Committee Chair, Kelly Diamond (Kelly.Diamond@mail.wvu.edu), or visit the IS Mentoring Program for more information.
