If so, this book has information needed to help incorporate learner-centered teaching (LCT) into information literacy instruction ILI), combining important grounding in the discipline with usable instructions and tips. Collaboration, participation, and responsibility are emphasized. There is first-hand information on the transition to learner-centered teaching through the author's own experience, as well as real-life examples from instructors in the field who support the learner-centered teaching model. Part one explains how learner-centered teaching works and why it is so effective, offers tips and tricks to listen to, engage with, and inspire learners, and provides essential background information and resources to paint a well-rounded picture of the learner-centered teaching model. Part two helps in the planning for LCT by covering different methods, like modeling, questioning, and collaborative group work. It also offers advice on measuring outcomes, assessment, and selecting the best instructional activities based on those outcomes. Part three brings everything together by applying LCT to practice, with tips on strengthening the face-to-face learning experience, creating the right environment, and discussing important drawbacks to consider in certain classrooms. An entire chapter is devoted to creating an online learner-centered experience that includes pros and cons, special challenges, designing the online environment to get to most out of LCT, and the key elements for online instruction. Perspectives from school, public, community college, university, and specialty libraries provide best practices from all areas of librarianship.
