Internetz, today I gave my first professional presentation at the New England Library Instruction Group. I was nervous, but excited as I LOVE talking about teaching and how archivists/librarians can engage undergraduates in a variety of disciplines.
My talk went really well! No one flayed me on Twitter and the folks in the room asked great questions and really got into the group activity I incorporated.
It was a great day; being around other librarians who are as invested in teaching as I am was so energizing! I really feel like I am finding my professional passion, or as my amazing former boss says, “you figured out where you want to hang your hat and fly your flag.”
I think I will send him my slides.
