Register now for RUSA's webinar
"Strategies for Pizazz"
with Trisha Prevett!
 Feb. 10, 2014 1-2pm CST

Webinar content is appropriate for librarians and library staff of all types who wish to revamp their instruction skills.
Discussion topics include:

  *   differentiating instruction
  *   concept-based videos
  *   creating buy-in
  *   straight-forward content
  *   incorporating technology
  *   making sessions fun through means of prizes, humor and other strategies.
Built on the success of the article "Razzle and dazzle'em: Stage directions for engaging instruction sessions" published in C&RL News, Prevett will outline directions for creating and delivering more engaging instruction sessions.
Participants will learn the steps used in creating an instruction session and will take away the practical knowledge to do it themselves. Also included are short pieces of background information on why these approaches should be used, including any relevant learning and education theories. A finished example of this process will be shown, which is the research guide used to teach skills to the upper level composition classes the presenter works with: nova.campusguides.com/researchsteps.
The approach taken in this webinar is for attendees to gain practical information that they can use right away. This will be as straight forward as possible, to provide insight into how these things translate to the classroom, and any tips or tricks with presenting the information that have worked or not worked.

Presenter: Trisha Prevett, Reference Librarian from Nova Southeastern University.
