This series of openly available, peer-reviewed lesson plans and concrete instructional strategies is the result of a project led by the professional development and resource sharing subgroup.
This publication emerged from #DLFteach workshops, office hours, Twitter chats, and open meetings. Community members and digital pedagogy practitioners expressed interest in lesson plans and session outlines which they could use as a jumping-off point for their own instruction and adapt for local contexts. #DLFteach Toolkit 1.0 was published in 2019 and contains twenty-one lesson plans on a variety of topics related to digital library instruction. In 2020, the organizers of Immersive Pedagogy: A Symposium on Teaching and Learning with 3D, Augmented and Virtual Reality, along with #DLFteach members, initiated Volume 2 of the toolkit with a focus on immersive technologies. In 2022, a third edition of the toolkit series focused on the intersection of literacies in digital library instruction was published.
All lessons include learning goals, preparation, and a session outline. Additional materials — including slides, handouts, assessments, and datasets — are hosted in the DLF OSF repository as well as linked from each lesson. Download slides to see notes for presenters, and data that is too large to render in preview. There you will also find markdown versions of each lesson plan for you to use.
