ACRL is proud to announce the publication of a new book Practical Pedagogy for Library Instructors: 17 Innovative Strategies to Improve Student Learning edited by Douglas Cook and Ryan L. Sittler. This new volume gathers seventeen case-studies using unique instructional methodologies framed by sound pedagogical theory. 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 theory 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.
The book is available here from the ALA Online Store or by toll-free telephone through the ACRL publications distributor at 866-746-7252.
