SOLD OUT: Beyond PowerPoint: Leveraging Technology to Enhance Instruction and Learning

Registration for this program has reached full capacity. Please contact Laura Forshay at to be placed on our waiting list. You will be notified if any space becomes available.

This course will inform the information professional of different ways of delivering informational services instruction to clients. By  optimizing the standard instructional platform today (Microsoft PowerPoint) and introducing other innovative web-based models of instruction--such as Prezi, Screencast, LibGuides, Keynote for iPads, and game-based learning--information professionals must reevaluate and assess their current pedagogical philosophies in an effort to stay relevant and meet clients' needs in ways that are familiar, and most accessible to them. Employing adult learning models and principles is imperative to delivering course content effectively and increases information retention among participants. Instructors and participants should also be aware of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards.

Who should attend:
Anyone looking to enhance their PowerPoint instruction sessions or those interested in alternate ways of delivering instruction.

Course participants will become familiar with Prezi, Keynote for iPads, LibGuides for Training, Screencast, and game-based learning. The participant will learn that these tools can act as alternatives to PowerPoing presentations for instruction. The end result of the course is the participant's use of one of the described tools in creating an instructional session for practical use during the course.
