Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aimed at librarians who teach as part of their role, Active Learning Techniques is a practical work outlining the theory and practice of using active learning in a variety of library settings. Andrew Walsh and Padma Inala explain what active learning is and argue for its importance in teaching. They also include more than 50 examples of techniques that can be easily transferred and used in teaching library and information skills to a range of learners within all library sectors. Since the “one-time” session is often the norm, the techniques featured here are designed to quickly grab and hold the attention of all types of learners. The authors make use of new and common technologies, like “mobile phone quizzes” and “twittering away" and include sample lesson plans for a range of subjects and settings.

Book News Annotation:

Active learning requires the listener to think, question and interact with the material being presented. The majority of this text consists of possible active learning activities, each about a page long and containing the following sections: uses, materials required, notes, how to use it, variations and pitfalls. It finishes with templates for constructing lesson plans with ten examples. Walsh (librarian, U. of Huddersfield) and Inala (librarian, Manchester Metropolitan U.) present a practical handbook that also incorporates use of mobile phone technologies and web 2.0 functions. While this book doesn't note the level of student for which the instructional techniques are designed, they seem most appropriate for middle through high school classes. The brief section on classification schemes only presents examples in the Dewey Decimal System. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
