From the Introduction:

Active learning techniques can be informed by several learning theories, including constructivist theory, sociocultural theory and collaborative theory. Only a limited body of library literature describes the application of sociocultural learning theory to active learning in bibliographic instruction.This paper attempts to elucidate the role that sociocultural learning theory can play in bibliographic instruction by examining the use of active learning strategies during instruction sessions for second year Biological Sciences students at a mid-size Ontario university.
