A Tableau vivant of Il Classrooms: The multimodal/multisensory Experience for the learning of threshold conceptsNational LOEX Library Instruction Conference Proceedings (2014)
Geared more toward an academic information literacy classroom, this presentation presents several different components that ensure a dynamic and collaborative learning environment that is grounded in a curriculum of threshold concepts. This presentation will start by defining the theoretic underpinnings and history of threshold concepts followed by a more refined exploration of what those threshold concepts are for information literacy. The presenter will then elaborate on and demonstrate how librarians can apply this pedagogical approach into the teaching and learning of information literacy. The presentation will then explore one specific threshold concept, that of the academic dialog, and demonstrate how it can be translated into a multisensory experience for students by using background music, whiteboards, concept mapping, drawing, and conversation.
