Based partially on Cordova & Lepper’s “Intrinsic Motivation and the Process of Learning”, this presentation will review the library instruction tools that motivate students in a traditionally dry topic. A big focus of academia recently is building communities and student relationships are part of that with benefits shown in increased graduate rates and student retention. With the library shifting to an ever increasing role in the service aspect of our industry, finding tools that engage students –even for one library class visit- is vital to our future. Learn how to increase the impact of your library instruction, grow beyond rote database search skills instruction, and increase the information retention and personal interest of your students.
