Description

Common reading programs can facilitate shared academic experiences for first-year students. As common reading often serves as an entry point for inquiry in the first year, instruction librarians have a role to play in such programs. This session will focus on an academic library's support of inquiry in freshman seminar courses through the common reading program. The library took advantage of opportunities presented by online learning technologies to create an interactive learning experience for first-year students. The library created interactive online learning modules to guide first-year students through the inquiry process. The modules use examples from the common reading and feature a variety of exercises to promote active learning. The presenter will detail development of the modules, including technologies utilized in their design and strategies for incorporating active learning. Attendees will learn how online learning and library instruction can be joined to enhance the common reading experience.
