Facilitated by Nicole Pagowsky

The University of Arizona Libraries has a coordinated instruction program for its 13 liaisons on a campus of over 40k. Various iterations of instructional approaches have cycled throughout the years, with one-shots sessions often dominating. Rather than continue the one-shot cycle, the program is intended to center feminist, collaborative approaches with faculty; incorporate critical pedagogy into philosophy and practice; and provide liaisons with more agency to have greater instructional partnerships. This presentation will provide background and discuss planning and documentation of the program, and share successes, challenges, and thoughts for the future.

Nicole Pagowsky is an Associate Research & Learning Librarian and Instruction Coordinator at the University of Arizona. She is a liaison and co-coordinates The Libraries' Foundations program. She holds her second Master's in Instructional Design. Her research interests include student motivation, educational theory, and critical pedagogy, and Nicole has published and presented on these topics nationally. She has co-edited recently-published volumes for the Association of College & Research Libraries Press on critical library pedagogy, and is co-creator and co-moderator of the #critlib critical librarianship Twitter chats.
