Searching Smarter searching faster is a youtube video made by the University of Sydney that I have been using in my Information SKills teaching sessions at the University of Huddersfield.
It really does help break up the session and gives the students some light relief from my talking and it illustrates the points I’ve made in a very humourous way. It seems to work less well, however, with the International students. I used it when teaching the European Business students last Friday and none of them laughed or even smiled. I asked one student at the end if he had understood it and he said he had but I’m not sure that was the case for all students.
