Index and Bibliography of Cooperative and Active Learning Techniques for Use for Library Instruction, 1989-1997.
Keyser, Marcia W.
The benefits of cooperative and/or active learning techniques for academic library instruction have been well established in the literature of the field. However, learning about and finding appropriate techniques can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. The following is a listing of cooperative learning and active learning techniques published in the library or educational literature between 1989 and 1997. Sources selected are viewed as being the most relevant for use in academic libraries. Each technique is identified with the author(s) of the source article(s); the list is followed by a bibliography of the materials cited. This list is intended as a finding tool, not as a definitive source of teaching techniques. Librarians and teachers interested in cooperative or active learning are strongly advised to read several of the articles cited, and, if possible, attend a course or seminar in the method and visit classrooms in which it is applied. Furthermore, the best techniques are often those created for the particular learning situation; librarians and other teachers should never restrict themselves only to what has been published.
