UH Libraries Enhances Instructional Design Strategy

To better serve the learning objectives and research needs of students and faculty, the University of Houston Libraries will enhance its library instruction program.

A new instructional design librarian, Ashley Lierman, joins UH Libraries Liaison Services next month. Lierman will establish general and course-specific learning objects, instructional modules and other library instruction materials, and will provide leadership in developing a comprehensive online learning plan that includes e-learning objects accessible through course management systems and the library web site.

“Liaison Services is very excited about the addition of Ashley Lierman to the instruction team,” said Kerry Creelman, coordinator of undergraduate instruction and outreach. “Ashley brings instructional design skills, with strengths in learning theory and instructional technologies, that will help us advance our online learning plan and better meet the information literacy needs of our students.”

Lierman brings over a decade of expertise in information literacy education and digital technologies. She received an MS in library and information science from Drexel University in 2010. Her most recent presentation, “Small Institution = Big Opportunities,” was part of the Collaborating with Faculty panel at the PA Forward Information Literacy Summit.
