$ Designing Effective New Employee Orientations (Infopeople)

Planning and facilitating new employee orientations is an important part of developing the culture in the library. Additionally, as resources and services change with the introduction of new technology, community needs, and changing user demographics, orientations need to be regularly updated. In this course, participants will learn how to use backward design (Wiggins and McTighe) and universal design for learning (Meyer and Rose) to design an orientation training for new library staff. Backward design encourages instructors to start by defining learning goals and then to work ‘backward.’ Universal design for learning are principles for creating instruction that meets the needs of all learners. Learning to use both backward design and universal design for learning will allow course participants to design effective new employee orientations.

By the end of this course learners will be able to:

  • Recognize common pitfalls in new employee orientation
  • Create learning outcomes and an outline for a new employee orientation
  • Apply principles of backward design and universal design to a new employee orientation
  • Create a lesson plan for a new employee orientation
  • Evaluate and design a new employee orientation

Learners will leave this course with a framework to design a new or redesign an existing new employee orientation.
