- raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;
- gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively;
- comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;
- thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; and
- communicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

Join us for an animated discussion based on our successful reworking of library instruction to reach all students in their first year @ Penn State Berks. With the use of online audience polling and audience interaction, we will journey together through our trek of “flipping” first year seminars (FYS). We started with creating tutorials, developing online activities, designing in-class active learning exercises, reaching out effectively to FYS faculty, and ending our voyage with faculty assessment. Our story of creation, implementation, and marketing which led to collaborative working relationships with faculty will inspire you to embark on your own excursion.
