Mills and Wiley head shots

Bunch Library faculty Jenny Mills and Claire Wiley recently led a workshop for Vanderbilt University Librarians. The workshop focused on information literacy lesson planning using backward instructional design.

Based on a recent article they wrote, titled “This is What Learning Looks Like!: Backward Design and the Framework in First Year Writing,” Mills and Wiley were invited to introduce this backward design framework to librarians across Vanderbilt’s campus. The pair led the librarians through a process of “designing instruction that focuses on teaching ‘enduring understandings’ about the research process.”
