Feedback form is now closed.
How do you provide a quality, user-focused library orientation to almost 5,000 students in 240 classes each year? Design a game! We solved the perennial issue of having enough staff to teach first-year writing classes by enlisting our student employees to teach basic information literacy and library navigation in a one-session game format. Join us to learn how using gamification and peers as instructors can transform your library instruction program.

Learning objectives:
Use gamification strategies to engage new students with library resources and services.
Train student employees to provide initial library orientation to free up non-student staff to teach more complex information literacy sessions.
