  • 7. Once you’ve got them … • Conversation • Innovation • Variety • Active • Challenging
  • 8. Once you’ve got them …. • Provide a rationale • Build on early success • Give feedback/assess • Use the group • Manage crises
  • 9. Once you’ve got them … Relevant and interesting • To the subject but also the student • “librarians love to search everybody else likes to find” (Eric Lease Morgan, Notre Dame Univ.)  Performance • Whether you like it or not • Spontaneity or planned • Technology • Double acts
