  • Guiding Principles:
    • Always include active learning
    • Discussion groups are learning communities – attendees share ideas and expertise and instruction staff facilitate discussion
    • Don’t be afraid to address current issues causing stress in the instruction community (ex: SFX, Google Scholar)
    • Recognize and respect the expertise of librarians from across the organization

Burnout Prevention

For this discussion group, we put a tip on a fortune inside fortune cookies. Everyone chose a fortune cookie and read their tip and then the group discussed it. At the end of the session, we gave this handout to people as reinforcement of what they discussed.
