Description

Drawing is an excellent lo-fi teaching method for students to interact with and demonstrate their competence (or ignorance) of information literacy concepts beyond traditional text dominated methods. This program explores the use of drawing as a tool to teach library instruction and information literacy. This includes examples of drawing exercises and an examination of student illustrations made in library instruction workshops. Attendees will work together on a hands-on drawing exercise. Participants will:

• Be able to describe the opportunities and challenges of drawing activities in library instruction workshops

• Be able to design drawing activities for their own workshops
