We Can Do It (And So Can You!) Creating an Active Learning Environment in your Library

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The benefits of incorporating active learning techniques into classroom instruction have been theorized, documented, and more or less agreed upon by education professionals. Sometimes active learning is adopted alongside new technology, or change is spurred on by a top-down vision statement, but what if the impetus for change lies not with your institution, but with you?

This interactive workshop gives you the tools to start fostering an active learning culture in your own library. We'll discuss developing in-house support from fellow instruction librarians, cultivating buy-in from faculty members, and one library's process for developing objective-based activities.

Participants will:
  • Critically examine their resources including time, money, and people.
  • Identify their active learning champions, both in and out of the library.
  • Develop their own meaningful learning activities based on the ideas put forth in this presentation.
