Instructor Development Survey - Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning 2nd Edition
Do you teach, train, or design learning experiences in-person or online in a library setting, and/or are you a current MLIS student or recent graduate?

This anonymous survey will inform a 2nd edition of Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning: Instructional Literacy for Library Educators by Char Booth, originally published in 2011 by ALA Editions - the 2nd edition will be published in 2019.

Questions are intended to gauge the level of pedagogical training you received during your MLIS education, the nature and frequency of your teaching activities, and the professional development you engage in to support your instruction practice. It should take you about 10-20 minutes to complete.

By submitting this survey, you are providing your consent that some portion of your responses may be reproduced in the manuscript or elsewhere as a resource to readers. The 2nd edition of RTEL will be available in 2019 - see for more information.

Thank you for participating, and if you'd like to be entered into a drawing for one of 10 pre-order copies of RTEL's 2nd edition, please email me at to let me know you completed this survey.
