Active Learning Techniques for Librarians: Practical Examples
Aimed at librarians who teach as part of their role, Active Learning Techniques is a practical work outlining the theory and practice of using active learning in a variety of library settings. Andrew Walsh and Padma Inala explain what active learning is and argue for its importance in teaching. They also include more than 50 examples of techniques that can be easily transferred and used in teaching library and information skills to a range of learners within all library sectors. Since the 'one-time' sessions is often the norm, the techniques included featured here are designed to quickly grab and hold the attention of all types of learners. Many make use of new and common technologies, like 'mobile phone quizzes' and 'twittering away'. Sample lesson plans for a range of subjects and settings are also included. Active Learning Techniques for Librarians will be equally useful to those new to teaching, those who wish to bring active learning into heir sessions for the first time, and experienced instructors who want to refresh their teaching and develop as librarian teachers.
