Once Upon a Time in the Academic Library: Storytelling Skills for Librarians
American Library Association
Part of a volume about storytelling in academic library contexts, this chapter reflects on the use of case studies in a sequenced information literacy curriculum in ENGL 2010 (Intermediate Writing: Research Writing in a Persuasive Mode). In highly interactive sessions across the semester, students collaboratively researched a case study topic and co-created artifacts that reflected their shared journey as researchers. The chapter is organized into the following sections, consistent with the other chapters in the book: classroom vignette, storytelling goal, audience, delivery, theory, cultural considerations, and practical examples. Readers will learn about things to consider when using case-based problem-based learning (CBPBL) through reading about case study details, curricular design, and students’ experiences with the lessons.
