Know & Go: Teaching in the Library: Applying Learning Theories to Support Our Communities

As librarians, we are in the business of supporting people. Today, many of our responsibilities include helping people find information, showing them how to use a new technology tool, and connecting them to resources. Due to these responsibilities we often serve in the role of teacher, coach, and/or facilitator. However, many of us are not trained to be teachers.
 

Therefore, knowing how people learn can help us grow professionally and better serve our communities. This workshop will include overviews of the following learning theories:

  • Constructivism
  • Andragogy
  • Experiential learning

Attendees will leave the session with practical ideas for applying the theories of constructivism, andragogy, and experiential learning in their day-to-day work.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will explore three different theories of learning.
  • Attendees will identify how the application of learning theories can support their work.
  • Attendees will recognize when to apply learning theories to workplace scenarios.
