Small Things by James Lang
Part II of Small Teaching is Understanding. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 are about connecting, practicing, and self-explaining, respectively. We read a passage on Zull’s depiction of what happens when we learn. Page 94. We demonstrated the concepts of how neurons fire with an analogy of fireworks and the librarians practiced a chain reaction of neurons firing. The process was repeated to show how practice improves efficacy and efficiency. Neurons that fire together, wire together.

Instruction Development and Assessment (IDeA) is a three part program that incorporates professional development, peer-observation and feedback, and formative supervisor observations.
A crucial tenet of the program is the idea that everyone has something to learn, and everyone has something to contribute. The program relies upon shared leadership, which is reflected in the way all instruction librarians collaboratively built a document to guide supervisor observations in a way that fosters continuous growth and improvement.
