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.

Event Policies Fall 2021

If you are teaching an in-person class this fall, make sure to follow Libraries Teaching Guidelines and the Visitor Access Policy:

  • Keep your attendance list for 2 weeks for contact tracing purposes. LibCal is one of the easiest ways to create and save a registration list.
  • If you plan to include attendees who are not in covid pass, follow the procedure outlined in the Libraries Visitor Access Policy to request access.
  • One person can un-mask at a time while speaking.
  • If food and drink are served at a workshop, the space capacity should be reduced while attendees actively eat and drink. When dining, hosts and attendees should limit group size, maintain extra distance between individuals, and limit the time spent eating.
