The Just-in-Time Teaching (JITT) project is an example of library outreach in a unique space and modality. It extends a partnership between the UC Davis Library and the Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) and gives us an opportunity to connect broadly with the campus teaching community and highlight our commitment to equity and inclusion.

CEE recently launched a series of online JITT resources, designed to “help instructors learn more about specific strategies they can readily implement in their classrooms.” JITTs must be student-focused, empirically-grounded and include practical teaching suggestions. They are currently available on CEE’s website, but there are also plans to embed JITT content in a student dashboard being developed for course instructors by the Office of Undergraduate Education.

Members of the library’s Instruction Peer Support Group worked collaboratively to develop a JITT focused on student library anxiety (Mellon 1986; Kulthau 1991) and strategies faculty can use to address it to promote more inclusive classrooms. We chose to highlight this topic because instructors may assume their students are familiar with how to use the library and do not build explicit guidance or support into their courses. This can impact the academic success of students from diverse backgrounds, including first generation and low income students.
The presenters will provide an overview of the rationale for the project, describe their collaborative development process and highlight their JITT on Library Anxiety. Details about faculty usage statistics (if available by July 2020) will be shared as well.
