Learner-centred Pedagogy : Principles and practice Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Today's emphasis on metrics and personalization make evidence-based instruction an imperative.

This book offers librarians concrete, empirically-based strategies to connect with learners at all levels. More than ever, librarians are required to possess pedagogical expertise and called upon to design, implement, and assess robust evidence-based reference and instructional practices that contribute to student success.

In order to achieve these goals, librarians must know how to teach information literacy skills that go far beyond one particular library context, in order to facilitate lifelong learning.

In addition to the traditional information expertise of the library professional, today's librarian must also master evidence-based pedagogical practices that can help make learning stick. Offering plentiful examples of pedagogy in action, this book covers: 6 cognitive principles for organizing information literacy instruction, with sample worksheets and organization tools for instruction planninghow to establish rapport and kindle learners' motivationtactics for transcending "cite 5 sources" and other uninspiring research assignmentseducational evidence debunking the mythical perception that because students are skilled at computers and mobile technology, they already know how to do researchquestions to keep in mind for inspiring autonomous learningthe power of story, as described by Joan Didion, Brene Brown's Ted Talk, and educational psychology researchthe science behind information overloada balanced framework for evaluating specific educational technology tools. Fusing theory with practice, this handbook is a valuable resource to help every librarian connect with learners more effectively.
