The Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association Annual Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, is just around the corner.  On Saturday October 6th, the GMR will be providing two separate continuing education courses during the event. Each will provide 4 MLA contact hours of continuing education. More details here.

Open Science for Health Sciences Librarians: Open Science pursues the goals of transparency in experimental methodology, observation, and collection of data; publicly availability and reusability of scientific data; public accessibility, and using web-based tools to facilitate collaboration. This course will offer an overview of the role of open science and its components in health sciences research, its implementation throughout the workflow of the research process, locating and creating open sciences policies for use at your institution, and assessing open source tools currently available.

Precision Medicine: Precision medicine is an approach to disease management that considers individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. This course will provide participants with some baseline knowledge of genomics, an overview of the clinical applications of genomic medicine, an appreciation of the associated ethical and social issues inherent in this field and a review of NLM resources for health professionals and consumers.

Did you know that the 2018 HSLI conference registration includes continuing education courses? Attendees are able to select one Thursday afternoon two hour course and one Friday morning four hour course at the time of registration.

Spotlight on the Thursday afternoon course: Managing your Scholarly Identity

One’s online scholarly presence can be critical for work and scholarship; it is also time-consuming, however, and, sometimes, we are not fully aware of how we are represented on the Internet. In this workshop participants will learn about options for managing one’s online identity, using tools such as Academia.edu, ResearchGate, Google Scholar, ORCID, and more. We will share strategies that can help you make decisions about which tools will best fit your needs and workflow.  Not only will this be useful for one’s own work and scholarship, but it will also be helpful for those who support other professionals engaged in research and scholarship.

The instructors will be Peg Burnette, Erin Kerby, and Amanda Avery. Peg is Assistant Professor and Biomedical Sciences Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is actively engaged in the supporting the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, in addition to a robust campus-wide program of interdisciplinary health sciences research, and she is also a member of the 2018 HSLI Annual Conference Planning Committee.  Erin is the Veterinary Medicine Librarian at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Erin enjoys being able to combine her experience as a health sciences librarian with her passion for animal health and welfare.  Erin holds a Master of Science in Information from the University of Michigan School of Information.  She is an avid horseback rider, and in her spare time trains her horse in dressage. Amanda, a graduate student at the University of Illinois iSchool and a graduate assistant at the Grainger Engineering Library, is interested in pursuing a career in health sciences librarianship.

“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.​
