Target Audience: Librarians with teaching responsibilities, or anyone who supervises librarians with teaching responsibilities

1. Participants will be able to identify and implement five non-lecture, pedagogically based techniques to transmit and reinforce knowledge in a classroom setting.

"Lecturing about Legal Research is as effective as telling someone how to ride a bike." Many new instructors of legal research and other disciplines fall into the trap of lecturing to communicate their course content, despite research showing that lecture is an inefficient form of instruction. Using volunteers as model students, speakers will engage the audience in these active learning exercises. This program will demonstrate several alternative teaching techniques, which have been used in legal research classes, and analyze their effectiveness.
