After the instruction session, but prior to the Post-PROT meeting, the librarian instructor should take time to reflect on his/her impression of the class session:
What was I trying to accomplish in this session? Did I accomplish everything I intended?
To what extent was the presentation effective for the material presented? To what extent was the presentation effective for the audience?
Did I have clear communication with the faculty member? Did I do a follow-up assessment with the faculty member?
How did the session involve students actively in the learning process?
How did I emphasize the students' perspective of the research process, rather than describing how the library works?
Was my questioning technique effective? (Did I use open-ended questions? Allow students time to respond? Build on students' answers?)
In answering questions, to what extent did I stay on the point, keeping the answer brief, and follow up to make sure the student understood the answer?
Did I prepare and organize the session in a way that met the objectives of the assignment? (Did I use examples that were related to the class assignment, of interest to students, and free of library jargon?)
What was the best aspect of the presentation?
What is one aspect of my performance that I would like to improve?
These are great questions to use in reflection after any instruction session!
