Turning Zombies into Zombie Hunters: Flipping Library Instruction
The Instructional Librarians from Saint Joseph Academy will share with you how they have successfully "flipped" instruction in their 9th grade information literacy unit, turning their formally passive zombie-like students into zombie hunters of information. Information literacy content and tools will be demonstrated using the “flipped” instructional model. In addition, tips and pitfalls will be discussed. Participants will be able to share their own related experiences and ask questions.
