Bethany Mickel is a Teaching and Instructional Design Librarian.  She works primarily with the Teaching & Learning team to deliver instruction sessions and workshops aimed at increasing students’ information literacy skills.  In addition, she is responsible for creating asynchronous instructional materials, tutorials, and learning objects to support the Library’s instructional outreach efforts.  The instructional design portion of her job intersects with the initiatives of the Robertson Media Center.  She looks forward to the launch of the new student-run maker space on the third floor of Clemons Library as an opportunity to further inculcate the fusion of information and media literacy amidst the changing landscape of education and instructional design practices.
