About the Instruction Toolkit

This tool kit is intended for the use of MIT Libraries staff who are teaching a class, workshop, or seminar for the Libraries. It is maintained by the Instruction Subgroup within Instruction and Reference Services.

The toolkit contains teaching material such as scripts, outlines, handouts, and presentation slides that instructors have used to great success in their classes. We encourage everyone to share their best teaching material here and for others to use or adapt it for other classes.

About the Instruction Plan

The system-wide instruction plan sets a framework for instruction within the context of the reorganized MIT Libraries. It features an updated instruction vision, a set of learning goals, and articulates organizational roles and responsibilities related to instructional activities. This will guide and support the Libraries’ efforts to prepare the MIT community to make effective use of information sources and systems to serve their current and lifelong training needs and interests.

The current plan builds on accomplishments from the previous system-wide plan, Instruction Plan for the MIT Libraries 2007-2010, and offers  specific recommendations for strengthening our resource base for instruction, tailoring strategies for outreach, and articulating tools for assessing student learning.


For questions about the Toolkit, please contact the Instruction Subgroup at Members of the group include:
