Description

While serving as a guide to students who are seeking information, an instruction librarian might present a research process as an unfolding ‘story.’ This session will explore several ways that such stories can enliven our instructional presentations and serve a creative and engaging purpose. Although the presentation will introduce flexible ideas that could be applied to a variety of goals and objectives, we will focus on library instruction with undergraduate students, typically within their academic major. The presentation will suggest concrete ways to develop inquiry-based instruction and lead toward the integration of library instruction with an information literacy program.
