At the University of Washington Libraries, discussions about how to incorporate information justice and privilege into our library classrooms led us to design microteaching sessions to workshop these concepts with our peers. The microteaching technique, which has small groups of colleagues work together to craft short mini-lessons on an assigned topic or theme, centers participant expertise and uses equity pedagogy as its framework, giving participants the opportunity to collaboratively design learning activities and practice teaching strategies. Recently, we have been reframing microteaching workshops with “Information Has Value” as the central theme, thus aligning content and pedagogy. The microteaching technique fosters creativity and encourages participants to try something new in a low-stakes, supportive environment. This workshop will allow attendees to engage actively with topics of information justice, information privilege, and information equity in order to brainstorm new approaches to effectively engage students in this national conversation.
In this workshop, participants will:

-- Invent or improve student learning activities around questions of information privilege, information justice, and inequitable information access as reflected in the Information Has Value frame;
-- Present those micro-lessons to peers;
--Observe and reflect on colleagues’ lessons in order to gain teaching ideas and techniques;
-- Have fun!

In this highly interactive workshop, participants will spend the majority of time engaging in small groups and observing and reflecting on the work of other small groups.
