Duke University Instruction & Outreach department has created a programmatic module to provide instruction librarians continuous opportunities to strengthen and enhance their teaching and information literacy skills. Initially began as monthly meetings that were attended by few, has blossomed into a year-long of engaging programs that are attended by anyone within the library system interested in instruction. With pedagogy, teaching strategies, active learning, faculty collaboration and assessment serving as the overall themes of this module, these opportunities contributed to the quality of library instruction provided at Duke. This presentation session will detail the planning and collaborative efforts of the Instruction & Outreach department to provide valuable professional development opportunities to instruction librarians and interns, as well as highlight the various programs and activities offered.
