Librarians – Let Your Voice Be Heard! Learning and Teaching in Faculty Development

When faculty (including librarians) embark on a new career at a college or university, they are filled with enthusiasm, expectations, challenges and – perhaps most markedly – unknowns. Institutions aim to smooth the transition for new faculty, offering orientation sessions and development seminars. Librarians have dual roles in this process, like we do in many things. As information professionals, we need to take an active role in helping to develop teachers. As instructors and facilitators of learning, we need to focus on our own enrichment.
