Title:Using Investigative Video Games to Teach Reference Transaction Skills in Interconnected Classrooms
Author(s):Burgess, John; Wallace, Anna Grace
Subject(s):Critical reasoning
Reference instruction
Video games
Abstract:As online education for the MLIS becomes widespread, one challenge for reference and user services instructors is that traditional active learning exercises used to promote internalization and personalization of reference skills may not translate to online classroom environments where real-time feedback may be more difficult to provide equitably. This article proposes the use of investigative video games to teach critical reasoning skills that are essential for competence in conducting reference interviews and searches. It provides examples of how types of reasoning are used in these video games and how, when practiced, can offer a foundation for further instruction in reference and user services.
