Today's emphasis on metrics and personalization make evidence-based instruction an imperative. This book offers librarians concrete, empirically-based strategies to connect with learners at all levels.

More than ever, librarians are required to possess pedagogical expertise and are being called upon to design, implement, and assess robust evidence-based reference and instructional practices that contribute to student success. In order to achieve these goals, librarians must know how to teach information literacy skills that go far beyond one particular library context, in order to facilitate lifelong learning. In addition to the traditional information expertise of the library professional, today's librarian must also master evidence-based pedagogical practices that can help make learning stick.

Offering plentiful examples of pedagogy in action, this book covers:

six cognitive principles for organizing information literacy instruction, with sample worksheets and organization tools for instruction planning

how to establish rapport and build learners' motivation

educational evidence debunking the mythical perception that because students are skilled at computers and mobile technology, they already know how to do research

questions to keep in mind for inspiring autonomous learning

the power of story, as described by Joan Didion, Brene Brown's Ted Talk, and educational psychology research

the science behind information overload

a balanced framework for evaluating specific educational technology tools.
