Eight-second attention spans? Even if the latest studies are off by a bit, it is increasingly clear instructors have a very narrow window to capture the attention of potential instructees. Lightning Lessons offer a solution to add to your instruction arsenal—how to capture an audience and teach a topic in five minutes. Whether your patrons are students, attorneys, or members of the public, this method increases your opportunity for teachable moments, conveys important research skills rapidly, and builds your reputation as a reliable resource. Fast, friendly, and feasible for librarians in every setting, the Lightning Lesson helps you teach more skills, to more researchers, in less time.
