Abstract

With the help of a Mellon Curricular Development grant, librarians at Bryn Mawr College’s Library & Information Technology Services redesigned their instructional model for one-shot information literacy instruction. They created self-guided, interactive online tutorials that allowed them to “flip” basic instructional content and revise their in-class lesson plan. From 2014-2016 they also conducted an empirical research study in three partner courses to assess the efficacy of their flipped classroom model. This poster will discuss the development of the online tutorials, highlights of the assessment study, and future directions for Bryn Mawr LITS’ work on information literacy instruction.

Engaging Learners Through Self-Guided Tutorials: Flipped Information Literacy Instruction at Bryn Mawr College
