Pedagogy:Professional Development

Jump to: navigation, search


The DLF Digital Pedagogy Resource Sharing and Professional Skills Development project formed following the DLF Digital Library Pedagogy group’s first two Twitter chats in early 2016. Group members were looking for opportunities to develop professional skills in teaching with and about digital libraries such as tutorials, webinars, and workshops.

Current projects

The Environmental Scan details existing resources to aid digital library practitioners in finding and developing teaching skills and resources. Anyone can add additional resources to the appropriate appropriate tab on the spreadsheet.

The group also hosts office hours on the Digital Humanities Slack channel every Tuesday morning, 9:00–11:00 a.m. ET and Thursday afternoon, 1:00–3:00 p.m. ET. Find out more on the DLF blog.

The group is currently coordinating the development of a Digital Library Pedagogy Cookbook, an online, open resource focused on lesson plans and concrete instructional strategies. Learn more from the call for participation. If you would like to join the project, we are still seeking copy editors and format editors, with work to be completed during spring 2019. Email the editors and express your intent to contribute by January 15, 2019.
