Doug Worsham, team lead for teaching and learning services, has received the 2018 Librarian of the Year Award. Presented by the Librarians Association of UCLA, the award recognizes excellence in librarianship over the last 12 to 18 months.
Worsham was honored for his significant contribution to teaching and learning at UCLA, especially through the WI+RE program. WI+RE hires students and trains them in pedagogical techniques, instructional design and media production. The students work closely with Worsham to create innovative tutorials to guide their fellow students through practical strategies for research and writing.
In addition to WI+RE, Worsham continues to shape the future of teaching and learning at UCLA through his many campus partnerships, including the Center for Education, Innovation and Learning; the Mellon Mays Undegraduate Research Fellowship Program; and BuildUCLA.
