“Aligning the Three Pillars of Effective Instruction: Outcomes, Teaching, and Assessment for Health Sciences Librarians”

Thursday, July 12, 1:00-2:30 PM CDT

Overview

You may be assessing your instruction in a way that does not really tell you if your teaching is effective. The MLA webinar “Aligning the Three Pillars of Effective Instruction” will show you how to write specific, meaningful objectives that you can use to create informative assessments. Participants will examine examples of good learning outcomes, learn why it makes sense to assess performance
rather than perception, and explore performance assessment measures. There will be time for participants to ask questions about their courses.
Register here: http://www.medlib-ed.org/products/1737/aligning-the-three-pillars-of-effective-instruction-outcomes-teaching-and-assessment-for-health-sciences-librarians.

Presenter
Jill Boruff, AHIP, has been a health sciences liaison librarian at the McGill University Library, Montreal, QC, Canada, since 2007. She has published on integrating evidence-based practice and information literacy skills in teaching physical and occupational therapy students.​

If you are planning to attend the Health Science Librarians of Illinois Annual Conference in Bloomington this week, remember that two sessions will take place the afternoon of Thursday, October 26. More information is below.

From 1:00 to 2:45 PM, first watch a recording of the National Library of Medicine’s webinar “Infographics: Communicating Information Visually” (the recording will last one hour), and then participate in a live discussion.The presenter in the recording is Rose Turner, Research & Instruction Librarian, University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System. In the webinar, learn to make your raw data more appealing and consumable with infographics. You will discover what infographics are and how they can make data easier to understand and share. Finally, Ms. Turner will wrap up by demonstrating an online resource (Piktochart), so you’ll be ready to create your own infographics. (A photo of Ms. Turner is below.)

Sarah Isaacs from the IllinoisEarly Intervention Clearinghouse will facilitate a discussion of infographics after the webinar viewing. This course does not carry CE credit from the Medical Library Association.

From 3:00 to 5:00 PM, Merinda Kaye Hensley,Associate Professor and Digital Scholarship Liaison and Instruction Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will give the presentation “Designing Instructional Materials”.With the approval of the ACRL Framework, everyone is talking about learning theory. This session will be practical and hands-on, breaking down the instructional design process in order to apply our understanding for how people learn, and also how to prove it (or not!).

 

Merinda Kaye Hensley's picture

Hensley is part of the team in the Scholarly Commons, a digital scholarship center that serves the emerging research and technology needs of scholars in data services, digital humanities, digitization, and scholarly communication. She teaches, coordinates and provides leadership for the Savvy Researcher, an open workshop series addressing advanced research and information management needs of graduate students and faculty. Hensley has taught for the School of Information Sciences at Illinois, LIS 590AE: Information Literacy and Instruction and Practice. She is active in ACRL, currently serving as Vice Chair of the Instruction Section. Hensley presents nationally and internationally on her research, incorporating scholarly communication into information literacy instruction and improving teaching skills of new librarians.

This course will not offer MLA CE credit, but participants can add it as an “External Training” to their transcript for the new Medlib-Ed portal if they choose. Therefore, it will still be part of their record and will count toward AHIP.
