Session Title

Where in the Library is the QR Code?

Description

First year students are often offered a traditional tour of the library in which librarians guide and students follow. Constructivist pedagogy suggests that students learn more effectively when they have control and active participation in their learning. Self-guided library tours with QR codes allow for students to learn about library locations, resources, and services and to create this knowledge for themselves. The QR hunt includes activities for students to complete that are tied to predetermined learning outcomes. The goal of each tour is to improve students’ retention of library information while increasing the fun factor.
