AsMorePractical Pedagogy for Library Instructors: 17 Innovative Strategies to Improve Student Learning (Doug L. Cook and Ryan L. Sittler, eds) gathers seventeen case-studies using unique instructional methodologies framed by sound pedagogical theory. As the mission of academic libraries has moved away from maintaining collections toward educating users in research methodologies, a need for new approaches to teaching are required. Many librarians come from disciplines other than education and therefore need to upgrade their skills in the area of instruction. This practical casebook is of great advantage to librarians who have had little formal training in education. Cases included cover the broad spectrum of education from behavioral to cognitive to constructivist. Each chapter is grounded in the educational and library literature and explores the potential of using pedagogical approaches which closely match instructional aims.
