Using flipped classroom and co-creation in a light version

Problem: Not enough time to teach library introduction to students (in this case Chinese studies), in the allotted time.

Solution: Have the students try out some of the most basic search methods at home before class, and using time in class, to build on that (and have time enough to also include an introduction to Endnote).

In order to fit everything into just one session, we flipped most of the basic library introduction to an online course on Learninglib.dk. The session itself focused on building on the home assignment (using Mentimeter to ensure that even the shyest student, could get to ask their question without fearing asking dumb questions.)

After effectively cutting the usual time to learn the basics in half, we had okay time to build on standard search introduction, and include an quick overview of Endnote.
