About this product
- DescriptionDo you feel like it's long past time to totally transform information literacy instruction? If so, this indispensable new book by Joan Kaplowitz has everything you need to help you incorporate learner-centred teaching (LCT) into information literacy instruction (ILI), combining important grounding in the discipline with usable instructions and tips. Collaboration, participation, and responsibility are emphasized. You get first-hand information on the transition to learner-centred teaching through Joan Kaplowitz's own experience, as well as real-life examples from instructors in the field who support the learner-centred teaching model. Part One explains how learner-centred teaching works and why it's so effective, offers tips and tricks to listen to, engage with, and inspire your learners, and provides essential background information and resources to paint a well-rounded picture of the learner-centred teaching model. Part Two helps you plan for LCT by covering different methods, like modelling, questioning, and collaborative group work. You'll also gain valuable advice on measuring outcomes, assessment, and selecting the best instructional activities based on those outcomes. Part Three brings everything together by applying LCT to practice, with tips on strengthening the face-to-face learning experience, creating the right environment, and discussing important drawbacks to consider in certain classrooms. An entire chapter is devoted to creating an online learner-centred experience that includes pros and cons, special challenges, designing the online environment to get to most out of LCT, and the key elements for online instruction. Perspectives from school, public, college, university, and special libraries provide best practices from all areas of librarianship. Readership: Librarians, information professionals and students on librarianship and information science courses.
