LS101

Why I am going to flip

The flipped classroom model is growing in librarianship as a teaching model for credit courses and non-credit workshops. In most cases, librarians provide  non-credit workshops; however, at UAF  librarians teach a one credit library science course. The LS 101 courses are six weeks, while the non-credit workshops are 15 to 45 minutes once a semester  to provide information literacy concepts. The flipped classroom model allows students to learn core concepts prior to a hands-on LS 101 classes or workshops.
