Failing to learn: Embracing failure for successful instruction
This workshop will demonstrate how to move beyond the conventional sit-and-listen instruction session and offer ways to create a more memorable learning experience. Drawing from the provocative writings of learning theorist Roger Schank, the presenters of this workshop will emphasize innovative ideas about effective learning.
Schank maintains that learning by listening is flawed because the human mind processes new information by trying to match it with similar information that has already been learned. In order to be effective, learning must be tied to a goal; learning requires memory modification; learning should be enhanced by story creation; and learning depends on failure. Guided by these assertions, the presenters will introduce innovative approaches to library instruction, which will include challenging participants to make mistakes and then to transform these mistakes into the critical components of deep learning.
After briefly establishing a theoretical foundation for the workshop, the facilitators will engage workshop attendees with exercises that will allow them to put Roger Schank’s ideas into practice. Adhering to Schank’s theories of effective learning, this workshop will not be a traditional sit-and-listen instruction session.

Visual and media literacy, the overlooked competencies: How we are influenced by what we see
Patricia Senn Breivik argues that information literacy should incorporate multiple types of literacy, including computer, library, media, network, and visual literacy (2005). In an era of massive exposure to visual images through the media and World Wide Web, librarians, educators, citizens and students need to be aware of the power of images to enhance as well as persuade and manipulate the messages we receive. Until we are aware of the techniques used in film and advertising, we are susceptible to manipulation. Therefore, this subject should be a concern for educators and librarians as a major component of critical thinking.
The attendees will view examples from advertising, the media, film, and art, and be shown, through stills and clips from films, how artists and film makers have used them to tell their stories and elicit emotional responses from their audiences. They will be given the opportunity to analyze a variety of examples during the course of the session. Their ability to understand and appreciate films and art will also be increased and enhanced. It will be an eye-opening experience.

Moreover, Henry Madden Library, the university Library, is experiencing dramatic changes too-- building a new building, relocating materials (a million + volumes!), and dispersing essential services and staff throughout campus. During the presentation we will share our experience and knowledge gained in the writing of a grant proposal for a multi-language tour as well as the specific considerations of pre- and post- production in the creation, shooting, and editing, involved in filming this type of tour. We will include script writing, software, casting of talent in three languages, filming in multiple languages, and post-production work such as marketing and outreach. We will engage participants in this process by showing outtakes from the casting calls, bloopers, as well as snippets of the tour itself. We will also include an honest summary the positives and negatives of taking on this type of project.
