Powerful Pedagogy: Teaching Techniques that Work

Publication Date



Get ready to turn the dial to eleven! Course-integrated library instruction for Introduction to Music Industry Studies classes was redesigned to be student centered. Based upon student feedback and student-centered pedagogy, the research sessions and accompanying assignments were revamped for more meaningful and active learning. Database demonstrations and lectures were transformed into hands-on research workshops and problem-based learning activities. The content and number of assignments now better align with the students' semester project to allow for authentic learning. This presentation provides adaptable examples of how to amplify the active and student-centered learning in your library instruction.
