Teaching at NYU Libraries
Orientation to teaching at NYU Libraries and resources available for teaching support.
These slides describe the work of the Undergraduate & Instructional Services (UIS) department and its role in providing teaching support to all librarians, reference associates, and others who teach within the Division of Libraries.
The UIS Department is ready to help you acclimate to teaching at NYU Libraries. Here are steps you can take to ease into classroom teaching. You can decide which steps make sense for you, depending on your existing knowledge of NYU Libraries and your prior experience and comfort level with teaching.
STEP 1: Review all the content in this guide.
This guide has the information you need to prepare for your teaching role. If you'd like to follow up by meeting with someone from UIS to clarify any questions you might have, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
STEP 2: Observe library colleagues' classes
You're welcome to sit in on classes taught by members of UIS and the Core Instruction Team. Contact us at email@example.com and we will help you identify scheduled classes that meet your availability.
Feel free to reach out directly to colleagues in Research & Research Services, Special Collections, and Data Services to ask if you can observe one of their classes.
STEP 3: Team-teach with a library colleague
The first few times in the classroom, it might be helpful to team up with a more experienced library colleague. To find a partner, be encouraged to reach out to the UIS librarians or perhaps a colleague in Research & Research Services.
STEP 4: Teach solo
When you begin to teach solo, remember that UIS is still a support by providing resources such as lesson plans examples, learning objects, and advice.
