How Librarians Can Positively Impact STEM Students: Active Learning Design & Video Resources
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation will show how librarians are supporting the design of active learning curricula by assisting instructors with the selection of appropriate support material and by designing appropriate pre-class and in-class activities. Such support offers STEM librarians a scalable way to include information literacy competencies in instruction. We will discuss how streaming videos, like the JoVE Video Journal, can be assigned as pre-work to replace parts of lectures. And, we’ll share results of a recent study from Clemson University and DeSales University, which suggest that students who watch just 5-minutes of video before class score better on quizzes.
