Description

At Walla Walla University, discussions of flipped classroom ideas to provide more hands-on and individualized instruction during classroom information literacy in the general studies writing sequence had been discussed prior to moving virtual during spring quarter 2020. Moving virtual and preparing for the possibility of asynchronous instruction required librarian presentations to take up a different format. This presentation looks at potential benefits of flipped classroom experiences in writing sequences, how the education services librarian utilized products like Springshare’s LibWizard to meet the needs of asynchronous and synchronous instruction beginning spring quarter 2020, and discuss lessons learned and plans for future instruction in more traditional face-to-face settings in the future.
