FREE Canvas MOOC > Teaching Library Research Strategies > January 27 2014 - March 2 2014

The migration of print resources to electronic formats has changed how instructional librarians teach students how to use the library effectively. The library has also changed to learning spaces and zones with less space for print resources. In this course, an experienced academic librarian will share his techniques and strategies for getting students engaged in the art of library research. A balanced approach to information literacy instruction including games, active learning, and using media literacy to get students enjoying their time in the library will be explored.
