New faculty members after arrive with little experience in teaching or planning for teaching. This book helps overcome that challenge. Many if not most schools of library and information science have many students seeking a second career. The information concerning teaching adult learners will be especially helpful for this age group. Different types of learning can be identified and made clear by thinking systematically about outcomes with strategies. Patterned after the matrix designed by Professor James R. Davis in his book Highly Effective Strategies, this book provides behavioral, cognitive, inquiry, mental models, group dynamics, virtual reality, and holistic strategies. Each is described and explanations are given for hiw it is most effective for developing exercises to instruct, reinforce, and assess specific types of learning. Each strategy also comes with its own appropriate measures of success. Sample materials are included to illustrate these adaptations of the Davis matrix, and materials about specific activities and course outcomes are drawn from the authors' ongoing curriculum audit. This book provides a structured platform that serves as a model for teaching and assessing student learning in applied LIS Courses. Following Davis's premise that different types of learning can be identified and made clear by thinking systematically about outcomes with strategies, including behavioral, cognitive, inquiry, mental models, group dynamics, virtual reality, and holistic. Each strategy is deemed most effective in developing exercises to instruct, reinforce, and assess specific types of learning. Each strategy comes with its own appropriate measures of success. With the ALA Committee on Accreditation Standards reflecting the need for student learning outcomes, this book provides both the introduction to this form of evaluation and provides examples of courses using this method of assessment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Grealy and Hall-Ellis (both library and information science, U. of Denver) identify some of the challenges of educators in their profession as societal and technological developments change and raise already high expectations in an information-driven society, as the demographics of both information professionals and their clients evolve, and as the nature and structure of education itself changes. They set out a range of strategies that instructors can use while planning how to address the needs of graduate students according to the desired learning outcomes of specific courses. Examples are from the theory-based core curriculum and enriched by concentration and elective courses that are more applied and topical in nature." - Reference & Research Book News
"This is a very practical volume for both experienced and novice LIS educators and would be useful for practitioners as well as a resource for staff training. It is recommended for academic libraries and library and information science educators." - ARBAonline
"...this reviewer would recommend this work to all colleagues involved in the education and training of library-based information professionals. Buy it and use it - you will benefit." - Australian Librarian Journal
