Shifting Instruction for Sustainability

Presenter(s) Erin Renee Wahl

Prior to the pandemic, the New Mexico State University Library approached instruction following a traditional model. The switch to online coupled with budget issues, meant it was necessary to imagine a more sustainable model, moving one-shot instruction into the university's LMS. Rather than see this as a temporary solution, this acted as the catalyst to reimagining our teaching philosophy as a department to reflect the changes taking place in libraries, and to bring instruction closer and more accessible to more faculty members and students than ever before. This lightning talk will detail the process and successes of these efforts.
