An Introduction to Learning Theories: Using Theory to Support People and Communities

 

As librarians, our jobs typically require us to work with people on a day-to-day basis. Many of our responsibilities
include helping people find information, showing them how to use a new technology tool, and connecting them to resources. These responsibilities often find us in the rold of teacher, coach, and/or facilitator.
Knowing how people learn can help us grow as librarians and better serve our communities. This workshop will
include overviews of the following learning theories: Andragogy, Constructivism and Motivational theory.
Attendees will leave the workshop with practical ideas for applying theories of learning in one-on-one interactions
with patrons and in library programming.
