LiLi Show and Tell series is April Sheppard on Using Analogies & Pop Culture to Teach Information Literacy, on 6 April 6 2022, at 10.00-11.00 US Pacific time, which is 18.00-19.00 UK time.
"Among some students and patrons, librarian-led instruction has a bad reputation for being boring, stuffy, and full of even-more-boring jargon. April Sheppard (Arkansas State University) will show how using analogies and pop culture in information literacy instruction can shatter these stereotypes and help you become the “hilarious” librarian who “makes a boring topic interesting.” She will give tricks to help make library instruction and resources less intimidating while also showing how humor, the unexpected, and pop culture can alleviate library anxiety, lead to higher participation and success in information literacy classes, and foster deeper connections between library personnel and their learners."
