Few librarians learn to teach by formal coursework. The literature reveals that librarians are teaching themselves to teach by attending conferences and workshops and reading the literature in the field. But it is easy to miss useful teaching tips with our busy schedules. Librarians have taken on the responsibility of trying to create an information literate society. In doing so, librarians need to follow certain guidelines as well as understand critical thinking skills, methods of instruction, learning and motivational theories, how to plan instruction sessions, how to deliver a lecture, and how to work with classroom faculty. In this article, Kilcullen summarizes useful information to help librarians learn to teach.
