Uncorking Learning: Flipping Library Instruction PechaKucha-Style

By Alexander J. Carroll, Nedelina Tchangalova and Eileen G. Harrington


Presentation at The Innovative Library Classroom (TILC) conference in Radford, VirginiaCreating a buzz for information literacy among faculty and students is a challenge for many librarians, particularly given the prevalence of one-shot library sessions. Could flipping the information literacy session using a learning management system improve learning outcomes, while engaging students more fully with information literacy concepts? Working with undergraduate students in the health sciences, we assigned student groups different online modules prior to class and had them present what they learned to the class in a Japanese presentation style, known as PechaKucha. We compared these sessions with a more traditional instructor-led session. In this PechaKucha-style presentation, participants will learn about efficient and effective approaches for flipping the classroom and assessing student learning in this type of information literacy session.This pilot program was sponsored by: (1) Mid-Atlantic Chapter (MAC) of the Medical Library Association (MLA) Research & Assessment Grant ($1,000); and (2) UMD Libraries Faculty Research Fund grant ($500
