The Librarian on the Teaching Team: An essential partnership - Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed

Teaching is changing. What was once a solo pursuit has increasingly become a team sport. I’m not talking about co-faculty taught courses. Rather, the team that I’m thinking about includes a mix of faculty and non-faculty educators. My experience with building a team of faculty and non-faculty educators to design and run courses comes out of online learning. Recently, we have started to take the course team model developed (in my experience) for online learning to residential (and blended) courses. This team model may not be appropriate for every course - but for larger enrollment introductory courses this team model works really well. There are 3 immediate and obvious reasons that a librarian should be included on every faculty / non-faculty educator course development and teaching team. https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/technology-and-learning/librarian-teaching-team
