Using Solstice & Active Learning in Library Instruction

Traditional library instruction, which often situates librarians as the “sage on the stage” lecturing on databases and subject headings, can challenge the attention span of both students and faculty. With the introduction of new forms of technology in our classrooms, librarians are working to integrate active learning with Solstice projection technology into library instruction in ways that ask students to collaborate to discover information sources, compare results, and analyze and evaluate the sources they find. This session details the possibilities that come with integrating active learning into library instruction, and it will ask attendees to imagine and discuss how students can grapple with the concept of authority, different kinds of scholarly sources, and the research process, all when visiting the library for an hour-long session.
