Flipped instruction provides librarians with the opportunity to engage students in library instruction and to delve deeper in a short amount of time. Not designed to replace a library instruction session, flipped instruction can help librarians partner more easily with faculty as students work on activities to reinforce the outside instructional content. Students are involved in their learning process and skills are reinforced. Learn how to begin flipping your instruction and how making this adjustment can make instruction more enjoyable for your students…..and you!
**Priority seating will be given to TBLC member libraries. If the event is full or your library is not a member, please add your name to our list and we will contact you as soon as a space becomes available.**
