Choose your own adventure is an engaging and practical instructional method that can be mapped to learning outcomes in a variety of settings. This teaching tool uses active learning techniques and a creative writing narrative to increase and maintain student engagement. The problem-solving adventure format gives choice to students and emphasizes their agency, embracing elements of critical theory.

Librarians at California State University, Chico created choose your own adventure flip-books for use in teaching information literacy. The flip-books encourage students to think critically about research scenarios, make decisions during the research process, and evaluate informational choices. Using an iterative design process, the presenters have honed these tools to suit the educational and informational needs of students and are using them to teach the knowledge practices and skills put forth by the ACRL Framework.

This presentation will give attendees examples of how to implement this tool in the classroom, and will provide attendees with the opportunity to create a choose your own adventure flip-book based on one of the Frames. Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of how to design an adventure flip-book and how these can be used to support teaching information literacy.
