About Inquiring Teachers Courses

In a small online community participants learn about pedagogical theories and practices relevant to information literacy education, while also developing an instruction plan for their unique teaching contexts. Throughout these courses participants provide one another with feedback and receive individualized feedback from the instructor. All courses are asynchronous, with flexible weekly schedules.

This professional development is unique in its emphasis on reflection and community and in its integration of learning research, accessible theory, and everyday teaching practice. To foster this environment, classes are small (no more than 15 people) and all participants are given ongoing personalized and detailed feedback. All courses are facilitated by educator and instruction librarian Andrea Baer, Ph.D.

Partnership with Library Juice Academy: All Inquiring Teachers courses count as electives for the Certificate in Library Instruction from Library Juice Academy.
