Feb: Dynamic One-Shot Library Instruction (ALA)

4-week eCourse
Beginning Monday, February 17

In one 50-minute library instruction course, authentic learning with student interaction may seem unattainable. It's not. Keys are communicating clearly with the course instructor, developing a realistic plan, and employing effective teaching strategies. With more than 30 years' combined experience in teaching information literacy, Buchanan and McDonough have designed an eCourse where you will experience effective learning activities and be ready to prepare your own.
This 4-week course will help you
•    develop effective communication and collaboration strategies in order to co-design information literacy sessions with course instructors
•    employ active learning strategies and classroom assessment techniques in order to facilitate meaningful learning
•    match the best hands-on activities to the students' stage in the research process in order to make information literacy instruction relevant and meaningful
