For episode 30 of Adventures in Library Instruction we were joined by guests Theresa McDevitt andRyan Sittler, editor of and contributor the book Let the games begin!: Engaging students with field-tested interactive information literacy instruction. We talked about the role of games in the library classroom and their value as a teaching tool. Thanks, Ryan and Theresa!
