Research is Not a Basic Skill: Using the Contextual Nature of Research to Transform Information Literacy Instruction

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

1:00 PM CDT

Description: Students’ confidence in their research skills often does not match their proficiency with those skills. Often, what students fail to grasp is the importance of context to the research process. In this presentation, learn about a new model of information literacy instruction that teaches the contextual nature of research by treating research as a subject of study rather than a set of basic skills.

About the Presenter:

Allison Hosier is an Information Literacy Librarian at the University at Albany, SUNY. She has published and presented on research related to practical applications of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy as part of information literacy instruction. Her current research is focused on introducing and exploring the metaconcept that research is both an activity and a subject of study and how the Framework’s acknowledgment of the contextual nature of research creates opportunities for introducing this metaconcept to students in the classroom. She regularly blogs about this work at www.studyingresearch.com.

Can’t make it to the live show? That’s okay. The session will be recorded and available on the Carterette Series Webinars site for later viewing.

The 2020 SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference, Life After Migration: Making Alma and Primo work for Everyone, is an opportunity to learn from the trials, tribulations, and successes of those who have migrated to Alma and Primo.  Our presenters, representing a variety of public and private institutions from across the country, will focus on the ways that libraries have changed their library instruction, their in-house workflows, and their discovery interface to better suit their patrons after going live with ALMA and Primo.  Come share your experiences and join your library colleagues at the SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference on February 7, 2020 (10:00am – 3:30pm EST).

Technology requirements for attendance:  Computer, internet connection, microphone/speakers (headset recommended) or telephone.  Zoom will be used for this conference and is free for use by attendees.

“Introduction to Design Thinking”

Instructor: Carli Spina
Dates: February 3rd through March 1st, 2020
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
Price: $175

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/160-design-thinking.php

Though the word “design” may readily bring to mind an image of architecture or graphic design, it is much broader than that. Design impacts virtually all aspects of library work from space design to service design to curriculum design. But, how do you ensure that your design is successful? Design Thinking is an approach to tackling problems and developing creative, user-centered solutions. This course will walk participants through the theory behind this process and offer a chance to gain hands-on experience with each step in the Design Thinking cycle. Participants will learn how libraries have found success through Design Thinking and techniques for bringing Design Thinking to any type of library.

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
– Define Design Thinking and understand each of the steps in the process
– Understand how Design Thinking has been applied in a range of library settings
– Apply the steps of the Design Thinking process
– Build prototypes
– Ideate and develop ideas, including as part of a group

This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in User Experience (UX), but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/certificate-ux.php

Carli Spina is an associate professor and the Head of Research & Instructional Services at the library at SUNY’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Previously, she was the Head Librarian, Assessment and Outreach at the Boston College Libraries. Carli holds a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School, an MLIS from Simmons GSLIS, and an M.Ed. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has extensive experience working on user experience, web design, and technology projects as well as serving as a coordinator for services to patrons with disabilities. She is a member of LITA’s Bylaws and Organization Committee. She was also the inaugural chair of LITA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the leader of the ASCLA Library Services to People with Visual or Physical Disabilities that Prevent Them from Reading Standard Print Interest Group. She teaches classes and workshops for librarians, academic staff, and students on a range of topics, including accessibility, user experience, and web design.

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.

You can register for any of our courses through the first week of instruction (as long as the course is not full). The “Register” button on the website goes to our credit card payment gateway, which may be used with personal or institutional credit cards. (Be sure to use the appropriate billing address). If your institution wants us to send a billing statement or wants to pay using a purchase order, please contact us by email to make arrangements: inquiries@libraryjuiceacademy.com

Free IACRL Webinar
Tuesday, January 28, 2020
1:00 – 2:00 PM

Libraries Are Open for Learning: Using OER to Support Students and Faculty

Open Educational resources (OER) have quickly become an answer to addressing higher education affordability, increasing student completer success raters and reducing equating gaps, and increasing pedagogical innovations. As libraries support the very essence of “open”, librarians and library staff are primed to lead OER efforts at colleges and universities. After setting baselines, including definitions and efficacy of OER, this webinar will discuss some OER and Open program opportunities your library can select to implement and support, no matter where you’re at in the OER adoption process. We encourage you to bring your ideas for OER programs that others can adapt, and your questions and concerns.

Register here. Please direct any questions to Michelle Nielsen Ott, 2019-2020 IACRL President, at mnielsenott@methodistcol.edu.
