Description

Libraries often take challenges as they are presented and make them a success. Such was the case at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in August 2011. The challenge was to quickly develop a 20-minute session for incoming First-Year students. The session had to compete for attendance, based on title, be delivered in a classroom (not the Libraries), include audio, video and engage students. Oh, and it needed to be repeated eleven times in one day. The solution involved the Cephalonian Method with humorous media from across popular culture and Libraryland. We focused on unique elements from our collections to capture students imagination. When it was all done, we had engaged over 780 students that students were recommending to their peers. In this session, learn about developing a compelling multimedia presentation to use on your campus for Orientation and more.
