An Award-winning Book!

ACRL just announced that Char Booth has won the 2012 ACRL Instruction Section Irene F. Rockman Publication of the Year Award for Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning:

Note paragraph 3, where the announcement indicates that many library “book groups” are already using this book as a guide :)

Congrats, Char!  We’re definitely looking forward to reading this book as a group this semester.

Instruction Learning Community!

This is the official first post of the VT 2012 Instruction Learning Community!  Although this post was written and published via my personal blog (,  it is also published on the Instruction Learning Community mother blog.  This blog will aggregate all the posts from the 13 learning community participants–and I have the distinct privilege of being the first author to have my post aggregated on this site.

Soon, many other reflections will be posted here.  I can’t wait to read them!

(p.s. Ignore the posts that came before this one–they were posts that I wrote on my “information litany” blog for another community)
