“A Funny Thing Happened in Library Instruction”: Facilitating Communication Through Humor.
This interactive presentation will describe the biology behind humor, when to use humor, and the importance of it in communicating information literacy to students, faculty, and EVERYONE. As facilitators of learning, librarians can use humor as a teaching tool to reduce library anxiety and to increase creative thinking. Participants will learn techniques and share methods in order to gain an understanding that humor is a skill that must be cultivated.
