In my current position at Sinclair Community College, I’m the librarian in charge of instruction and assessment. That basically means that I coordinate our teaching efforts for all different academic departments. But perhaps the biggest part of what I do is the assessment part of the equation: attempting to track what our students are actually learning and determining how well aligned that is with the college’s strategic goals. It can be a challenge, but I’m trying a lot of different things. I recently shared some of these techniques on the blog of the Academic Library Association of Ohio’s Instruction Interest Group.
