High-Flex Lesson Planning: A Sustainable Approach to Information Literacy

Designing specific lessons plans is not always feasible when faced with last-minute requests and being short-staffed. On the flip side, general lesson plans are often too broad. I developed a process called High-Flex Lesson Planning, which focuses on using backward design, critical thinking, chunking information, and active learning to develop activities that are easily adaptable to classes regardless of their subject matter. This interactive presentation will review the theories supporting this lesson planning process, showcase examples I have implemented in the classroom, and will provide an opportunity for attendees to apply the concepts of High-Flex Lesson Planning to a common teaching scenario. The goal of this presentation is for attendees to leave with a toolkit of teaching ideas they can implement after the conference.

Participants will:
  • Explore the instructional principles that can make their instruction highly flexible in a variety of learning contexts.
  • Apply the concept of High-Flex Lesson Planning to an information literacy activity.
  • Reflect on opportunities to incorporate High-Flex Lesson Planning into their teaching.
