Make it a Double Shot: Plussing the One Shot with a Flipped Information Literacy Component

Information literacy is more crucial than ever in our divided “post truth” world, but finding time to teach it is difficult. Though librarians are information literacy experts, we are most often asked to provide “one shot” instruction sessions which focus on the technical aspects of database searching, with only a cursory look, if any, at information literacy. Deeper engagement is possible, but usually requires collaboration with highly motivated professors through embedded courses or other, time-consuming programs that limit reach.

I developed a method at Gonzaga University to transform the one shot into a "double shot” via a flipped, pre-class online component. This allows me to sneak information literacy concepts into the one shot without extra work for the content professor, and with manageable, front-loaded work for the librarian. This session will outline the process of creating the flipped portion using LibGuides and Google Forms. It will explain how the program was pitched to content professors of Gonzaga’s new First Year Seminars. It will include tips for ensuring a lively in-class discussion. Finally, it will cover the lessons learned via informal feedback and formal assessment of the program. 

At the conclusion off this presentation, attendees will understand how to:
- recognize the challenges and benefits of flipped instruction
- use LibGuides and Google Forms to create an online guide and exercise
- effectively pitch a flipped instruction session to faculty
