Academic librarians teach every day. They teach diverse audiences in a variety of venues, but one teaching scenario remains quintessential: the one-shot library instruction session. In recognition of the centrality of the “one-shot,” this panel shares time-tested “lessons” for librarians that teach in this format. These lessons provide a range of strategies for developing pedagogically sound one-shot library instruction sessions and can be grouped loosely into three categories: planning, delivery, and integration.
