Abstract

The use of a flipped classroom approach to instruction has seen increased growth in recent years across all disciplines. It can also be a very effective instructional strategy for working with students in the information literacy classroom, especially college composition students coming for 50-minute or 75-minute "one shot" academic research instruction seminars. By having students view and react to personalized videos that cover the more procedural/technical aspects of locating sources before coming into a library, the librarian can thus spend valuable class time covering keyword development, critical thinking, and having students find resources that are specific to their individual topics, which of course makes the seminars more relevant to their actual context. This presentation will cover simple video design and creation, relevant learner activities, assessment strategies, and ADAAA compliance. Useful handouts will be provided.
