What’s the Problem?: Student Centered
Learning in Social Sciences Library Instruction
by Janna Mattson, Social Sciences Liaison
Librarian and Mary Oberlies, Social Sciences Librarians at George Mason
Efforts to address student engagement and instructional assessment needs led
two social science librarians to develop instruction session using
problem-based instruction (PBI).  They will describe the implementation of
PBI for upper level undergraduate library instruction in conflict resolution
and criminology; share preliminary data gathered using formal and authentic
assessment tools, and next steps.


One-shot Library Instruction, Not One-shot Assessment: A Conceptual
by Rui Wang,
Social Sciences Librarian at Central Michigan University
. One-shot library
instruction for social science courses is quintessential, but its assessment remains challenging. Rui
will report the preliminary findings from her study of a conceptual approach to
assessment for one-shot library instruction. The study attempts to shed light
on developing a valid, reliable, and practical instrument for the conceptual
approach to assessment for one-shot library instruction.
