An actor, a script-writer and a videographer walk into a library… and produce the best instructional videos ever.
Tactics: Animated whiteboards, comedy, puppets
Topic: Library Instruction
Teaching college kids about the resources available to them at the library seems like a daunting task. Getting them excited about it? fughettaboutit. That is, unless you enlist the help of 3 funny guys a puppet, a whiteboard and a camera. Then you get not only comedy gold, but you might also learn something too.
And as you might suspect from a library, the decision to go funny was well researched and thought out as well.
My heartiest salute to these three jokers, for John Watts, Joshua Vosler and Tim Hodge have managed to do what was before now, the impossible: they made me really interested in citations.
