Students learn best when they are motivated by and interested in the subject. This unique manual shows librarians and instructors how to develop engaging courses that will compel students to become effective and successful users of information both in their academic careers and their professional lives. Part One gives librarians the keys to understanding motivation essentials and teaches them to make information literacy courses more motivating to students and the value of intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation. Jacobson and Xu show how to utilize credit-bearing courses, course-related instruction, drop-in sessions, and first-year programs to create exciting and enticing instruction for students. They provide librarians and class facilitators the tools to keep their students interested, with tips from instructors, notes from actual experience, innovative exercises and assignments, models of teaching behaviors, methods for increasing student participation, advice for assessment and grading, and considerations for Web-based instruction.

Review:

One of the few resources available that provides practical approaches for motivating learners on information literacy concepts and skills...highly recommended to librarians who provide information literacy instruction or facilitate student learning in any way. --Journal of Academic Librarianship

Jacobson and Xu have filled a gap in the field; this book is heartily recommended for all teaching librarians. --Arba
