    One thought on “Active Learning Techniques for Librarians: Practical Examples”

    1. Partially useful book about active learning for librarians in one shot sessions. The book is a little dated and will require some outside research into new tools, apps, techniques. Also, just filter the results based on what works for your population, as some recommendations appear to be more appropriate for school libraries instead of academic libraries. Overall, great easy to use and ready to adapt tool -able to digest in an hour or two.
