B22. Controlled Chaos: Energizing Your Instruction with Active Learning
Ensure that your instruction classroom is a locus of learning by energizing your lessons with more activity and less lecture/demonstration. This session will help you embrace “controlled chaos” by understanding how to structure activities, group work, and handouts so that you can actively engage students with your learning objectives without losing control of the lesson. Specific strategies, lesson plans, worksheets, and activities will be shared and participants will leave with practical ideas to get immediately started with active learning. This session is geared towards librarians who have had minimal or no instruction training but want to energize their teaching with new ideas and techniques. Participants are encouraged to bring a lesson plan, PowerPoint, or learning objective to workshop during the session.
