LIRT endorses active learning techniques, maintaining that "more is learned by doing than by watching" (LIRT, 1999).
Again, LIRT recommends this style of instruction, encouraging the librarian to "engage your audience by asking questions" and "ask questions to break up the sequence of your lecturing" (LIRT, 1999).
