Presentation Description

This presentation explores some of the uses and benefits of short, 10-15 minute instruction sessions for information literacy pedagogy; faculty outreach, education, and relationship development; and connecting patrons with library resources and services. Short instruction sessions are a powerful tool for attracting participation among faculty unwilling or unable to sacrifice class time, engaging students without exhausting their attention, and encouraging use of library resources and services. Presenters discuss recent experiences at Bennett College, and present example scaffold research assignments designed to be paired with short instruction sessions.
