Presentation Description

This presentation will describe an innovative library instruction technique for freshmen in English 101 courses at the University of Montevallo. Beginning in the summer of 2010, digital Flip cameras were used to teach the classes information literacy skills. This active learning experience not only increased the student’s information literacy skills and their comfort with finding resources in the library, but they also enjoyed the experience and interpreted the project in creative ways.
