Today’s emphasis on metrics and personalization make evidence-based instruction an imperative. This book offers librarians concrete, empirically-based strategies to connect with learners at all levels.
More than ever, librarians are required to possess pedagogical expertise and called upon to design, implement, and assess robust evidence-based reference and instructional practices that contribute to student success. In order to achieve these goals, librarians must know how to teach information literacy skills that go far beyond one particular library context, in order to facilitate lifelong learning. In addition to the traditional information expertise of the library professional, today’s librarian must also master evidence-based pedagogical practices that can help make learning stick.
Offering plentiful examples of pedagogy in action, this book covers:
