This practical guide provides you with detailed plans for designing user-centered literacy and library instruction in your higher education. Creative Instructional Design: Practical Applications for Librarians explores the major overarching themes that show why instructional design is so impactful for academic librarians—intentionality, collaboration, and engagement—and provides you with extensive examples of how librarians are applying the theoretical perspectives of instructional design in practical ways. The book examines ways in which librarians are using instructional design principles to inform, construct, or evaluate. This foundation is supplemented by the USER Method, a step-by-step approach to creating learner-focused instruction.

Also included are templates for instructional planning and technology evaluation, as well as practical advice and scenarios from those working in the field.
