Librarians and History Instructor Present at Massachusetts Library Conference

On Friday, May 8th, Eric Styles, Sarah Zimmermann, and Eric LaForest presented at the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) New England Annual Conference at The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. Entitled On the Flip Side: Fostering Student-Centered Learning in a Flipped Classroom through Faculty-Librarian Collaboration, the presentation covered the four flipped classroom modules developed by Eric Styles, Sarah Zimmermann, Megan Blunden and Eric LaForest for the U.S History Research Project. By leveraging online modules that contain project-specific video tutorials and assignments, the new curriculum improves students’ understanding of the research process and promotes collaborative, problem-based learning in the classroom.
