Invite More Action! How to create interactive, student-centered learning environments

Presenter: Molly Higgins
Hosted in partnership with LiME (Librarians in Medical Education)

There are many advantages to interactive, student-centered learning environments, such as keeping students engaged, encouraging them to apply content immediately, and allowing instructors to observe the effectiveness of their teaching as they teach. There are also many ways to create interactive, student-centered learning environments. In this thirty minute webinar, we will discuss several techniques such as scavenger hunts and break out groups for making library instruction more interactive with and without digital technologies.


  • Introduce participants to techniques for creating interactive, student-centered learning environments, with and without digital technologies
  • Give participants hands on experience with said techniques
