The Learning Cycle: Why Library
Instruction Fails to Stick and What We Can Do About It
Eric Frierson (The University of Texas at Arlington)
The Learning Cycle is a method of lesson planning based on sound educational research on how people learn. Central to this method is letting students invent the core concepts themselves - in their own words and through active experience - and then applying library terminology later, once students have made the ideas their own.
In this interactive session, attendees will experience a Learning Cycle lesson in action. We will discuss the role of the librarian in meaningful learning experiences that require students to use higher level thinking skills to come up with the things they need to know themselves, empowering them to think for themselves in the future.
This session will help every kind of library instructor, from the novice to the expert, develop lesson plans that have lasting effects on student achievement. Student-centered and student-driven learning is the only way to foster authentic critical thinking and the only way to "make it stick."
