Incorporating Active Learning Into Your Teaching Workshop

On Wednesday, August 19, 2015, members gathered at the SENYLRC office to hone their library instruction skills. The class was led by Brian Morgan, Assistant Professor at the Ella Cline Shear School of Education - SUNY Geneseo. This one-shot class focused on pedagogical theories that help take instructors beyond the dreaded lecture format.

Building Communities of Practice

On Friday, June 19, participants met at SENLYRC to learn about how to establish community by running better meetings. (A meeting being any event where a group of people come together to talk about a topic.) Although "meeting" can sometimes seem like a dirty word, a necessary evil that exists in modern life, at this event, participants learned about techniques to make them more engaging.
