Librarians across library types frequently find themselves positioned as educators. To ensure learner needs are defined and addressed in formal and informal educational settings, librarians should gain basic competency in instructional design. Additionally, instructional design skills have the potential to benefit librarians in non-teaching roles. This presentation summarizes a research project examining how librarians across library types and departments can benefit from instructional design skills, identifies core instructional design competencies for librarians, and suggests opportunities for research to investigate how librarians might best acquire these skills.
