The ALA Library Instruction Round Table will present its 2020 Innovation in Instruction Award to the Brooklyn (N.Y.) Public Library. The award recognizes a library that demonstrates innovation in support of information literacy and instruction. This year it recognizes The Teacher Lab, BPL’s effort to connect library resources with as many teachers as possible. Developed by Amy Mikel, BPL’s coordinator of school outreach, The Teacher Lab is a free, self-paced online course that introduces fundamental library, research, and information literacy skills to K–12 educators.
