Collections Decoded Presentation, Brick & Click 2017, Aisha Conner-Gaten, Kristyn Caragher, Tracy Drake

Aisha Conner-Gaten

How are collections processed and presented in regards to race and ethnicity? What is not collected and why? Who gets to say what is worth collecting? Operating from three distinct but interlocking perspectives, we will discuss our experiences navigating collection development and collection development policies as a Black woman archivist, a White woman anti-racist public librarian, and a Black woman academic librarian. We will look at the ways in which Black women as collections professionals face invisibility, coded language, and increased mental and emotional labor while operating in a profession that is 85.2% White. We will offer practical strategies ...

The Effect Of A Computing-Focused Linked-Courses Learning Community On Minority And Female Students, Amber Settle, James Doyle, Theresa Steinbach Sep 2017

The Effect Of A Computing-Focused Linked-Courses Learning Community On Minority And Female Students, Amber Settle, James Doyle, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

While enrollments in computing degrees and courses have grown rapidly in the past decade, both female and minority male students remain underrepresented in computing programs. This makes recruitment and retention of these populations a continuing concern. Affinity for a major is connected to student retention, and learning communities have proven effective for this purpose. We present an evaluation of a three-year linked-courses learning community in which we measure pre- to post-quarter changes in student attitudes and resource utilization. We find that participants in the learning community are significantly more likely to report being a part of a group of programmers ...


Barriers To Oer Adoption (And Possible Solutions), Amanda Hovious Aug 2017

Barriers To Oer Adoption (And Possible Solutions), Amanda Hovious

Texas Conference on Institutional Repositories

Type of presentation: Full Session

ABSTRACT

In 2012, at the World Open Educational Resources Congress in Paris, UNESCO declared that governments within their powers should develop strategies and policies that promote open educational resources (OER) as an avenue toward the universal right of equity of access to education. Though OER has increased exponentially in availability since that time, there remain confounding factors that act as barriers to OER adoption, such as ease of discovery, ease of adaptability and re-use, and uncertainty regarding quality and sustainability. Numerous studies have examined these barriers, and these studies should be of concern to librarians ...

Keepin' It Real, Lifelong Information Literacy Conference 2017, Aisha Conner-Gaten, Jennifer Masunaga, Desirae Zingarelli-Sweet

Aisha Conner-Gaten

After an election fraught with misinformation, fake news, and hoaxes on all sides, students found it difficult to navigate digital media not only for scholarship but in their personal lives. Librarians at LMU conducted information literacy workshops to engage students with meaningful current news outlets and news stories from all political ideologies as a part of a campus-wide teach-in on Inauguration Day 2017. This presentation will provide an overview of these workshops and explain how librarians can implement similar programs while responding to a politically and emotionally-charged campus and public environment. This presentation will also discuss the workshop development process ...

Research As Inquiry, Social Justice, And The Particularist Challenges Of Religious Traditions In An Age Of Terror And Hate Jun 2017

Research As Inquiry, Social Justice, And The Particularist Challenges Of Religious Traditions In An Age Of Terror And Hate

Desirae Zingarelli-Sweet

Although the term “social justice” itself is commonly attributed to a 19th century Catholic theologian, the concept of social justice and imperatives to work toward its realization are integral to virtually all religious and spiritual traditions. Religious traditions have historically shaped institutions and power relationships in profound ways and continue to do so alongside the rise of the “nones” (those with no religious affiliation). Moreover, the complex interplay between religious and other cultural, racial, ethnic, lingual, political, and economic forces render a critical social analysis that leaves out religious factors woefully incomplete. Engaging these traditions, then, is essential for critically ...

Organization Of Vocabulary In L2 Spanish Textbooks: Semantic Relationships Within And Between Vocabulary Lists, Brody Dingel Apr 2017

Organization Of Vocabulary In L2 Spanish Textbooks: Semantic Relationships Within And Between Vocabulary Lists, Brody Dingel

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

The use of semantically related words in new vocabulary lists is common practice in second language textbooks. However, research has suggested that organizing new foreign language vocabulary in semantic sets may cause interference and even slow acquisition as compared to other organizational methods (Erten & Tekin 2008). When it comes to assessing the frequency of this semantic organization of new vocabulary in foreign language textbooks, relatively little research has been done, especially with regard to Spanish textbooks. López-Jiménez's study (2012) on vocabulary in Spanish textbooks found that semantic organization was present in six of twelve textbooks surveyed, but the definition ...


Eating Affordable Together, Nicole E. Teefy Mar 2017

Eating Affordable Together, Nicole E. Teefy

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Our intervention, Eating Affordable Together provides young adults and their families with education and skills to achieve a healthy lifestyle while reducing the obesity in adolescents within Portage County. The obesity rate since the 1980’s in teens has gone from 5% to over 20%. In Portage County 15% of youth are considered obese. Obesity increases risk for anxiety, depression, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and stroke. We are focusing on adolescents and their parents because adolescents depend on these parents or legal guardians for guidance and resources such as food. We would like to implement workshops consisting of ...
