Scorm Modules For Il Instruction And Assessment, Eric A. Kowalik Mar 2019

Scorm Modules For Il Instruction And Assessment, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

Rapid e-learning programs such as Articulate Storyline make it possible to develop highly interactive sharable content object reference model (SCORM) packages without advanced programming knowledge. These SCORM packages can be loaded into most learning management systems (LMS) and allow librarians to better gauge students' information literacy competency and create flipped instruction opportunities to allow for better use of valuable in-class time. Learn about the development, implementation, and evaluation of these SCORM packages, then join us in helping to improve them by downloading the open source packages from the project GitHub site - http://marquetterml.github.io/information-literacy-modules/.

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 ...

Vickie Mix

A pinch of this, a drop of that, a tad and a smidgen combine to create a sweet and savory docs soup in the information world. Government Documents no longer frost the traditional information cake with swirls of technical gumbo. Instead, Federal and State governments increasingly sate the public’s appetite with innovative, engaging “dishes” served from traditional and not so traditional “eateries”.  Come Mix it up with Chef Vickie as we explore tasty delights crafted in the Docs Information Kitchen.


Informed Learning, Information Literacy, And Scholarly Communication: Library Pedagogy As A Bridge To The Disciplines, Kim L. Ranger Oct 2016

Informed Learning, Information Literacy, And Scholarly Communication: Library Pedagogy As A Bridge To The Disciplines, Kim L. Ranger

Kim L. Ranger

This paper explores collaboration between librarians and faculty in higher education to construct connections between informed learning theory, information literacy practice, and disciplinary scholarly products to foster reflective and deep engagement with information.

Increasing digital innovations in communication and pedagogy, the need for various literacy capabilities, and the potential wisdom gained from considering diverse methodological perspectives have driven the need for interdisciplinary collaboration (Witt, 2012). There have also been several calls for a relational approach to teaching and learning, changing the roles of librarians (Farrell and Badke, 2015; Gunton et al, 2014; Jaguszewski and Williams, 2013), and scholarship which examines ...


One Tutorial, Two Universities: How Technology Can Be Adapted To Meet The Needs Of Multiple Libraries, Eric A. Kowalik, Valerie Beech, Betsy A. Williams, Rita Kohrman May 2016

One Tutorial, Two Universities: How Technology Can Be Adapted To Meet The Needs Of Multiple Libraries, Eric A. Kowalik, Valerie Beech, Betsy A. Williams, Rita Kohrman

Eric A. Kowalik

How many times have you participated in this scenario?

     Student: I can’t find this article in the databases (she shows you a citation).
     You: Oh, this citation is for a book. Let’s check the catalog.

Helping students understand citations seems to be an on-going activity, but learning about citations can be boring and requires attention to detail. In order to address this problem, we created a fun tutorial using drag-and-drop technology that can be used in an online environment or in the classroom. The tutorial helps students identify the elements of a citation, place them in the correct ...


Leveraging Articulate Storyline And An Lms To Go Beyond The One Shot Il Session, Eric A. Kowalik, Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes, Valerie Beech Apr 2016

Leveraging Articulate Storyline And An Lms To Go Beyond The One Shot Il Session, Eric A. Kowalik, Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes, Valerie Beech

Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes

Covering necessary information literacy topics in a one shot session can be difficult. To address this challenge, the Marquette Raynor Memorial Libraries moved to a new instruction model for the First Year English program. The new model involved embedded librarianship and interactive Articulate Storyline tutorials pre-loaded into the Learning Management System (LMS). These new initiatives provided flexibility in teaching information literacy concepts and fostered stronger relationships between librarians and their instructors. Learn about the development, implementation and evaluation of this new program. (Transcripts of the presentation can be found in the Notes field of the PowerPoint slides).

Graduate Work 101 2.0: An Online Tutorial To Meet The Information Needs Of Graduate Students At Umass Boston, Mary T. Moser, Christina Gattone May 2014

Graduate Work 101 2.0: An Online Tutorial To Meet The Information Needs Of Graduate Students At Umass Boston, Mary T. Moser, Christina Gattone

Mary T. Moser

Healey Library is faced with the same problems that plague many of us at UMass Boston: How do we offer innovative, student-centered services with limited funding, staffing, and resources? Additionally, as UMass Boston grows into its mission as a research-extensive university, we find ourselves facing a new set of challenges in supporting growing populations of graduate students and their research projects. One consistent theme that emerges through conversations with faculty and administration is that graduate students seem underprepared to tackle information seeking and research management in today’s digital landscape. Many students have been out of school for long enough ...


Starting From Scratch: Meaningful Integration Of Information Literacy Through Collaborative Course And Assignment Design, Chris Sweet, Meghan Burke Dec 2013

Starting From Scratch: Meaningful Integration Of Information Literacy Through Collaborative Course And Assignment Design, Chris Sweet, Meghan Burke

Christopher A. Sweet

Instruction librarians are all too familiar with well-intentioned research papers and assignments that reduce information literacy to a simplistic checklist (must include 4 peer-reviewed sources) or set of skills (use interlibrary loan, cite materials properly). Librarians and classroom faculty should recognize that information literacy cannot just be magically imparted to students through a single assignment or library instruction session. Becoming information literate requires repeated practice in a variety of contexts. How often have you wished for the opportunity to just sit down with a faculty member and start from scratch when designing an assignment –or even better- an entire course ...

Using Learning Objects To Enhance Distance Or Blended Learning, Susan A. Ariew, Maryellen Allen Oct 2013

Using Learning Objects To Enhance Distance Or Blended Learning, Susan A. Ariew, Maryellen Allen

Susan A. Ariew

The USF Tampa Library has been creating learning objects to enhance instruction and reference since YouTube came into its own in 2006. Over that period of time, the need for more expertise in creating quality learning objects that can be embedded in course management systems or on the library web site created a shift in priorities and leadership. In 2012 the USF Library hired an Assistant Director for Instruction and a Blended Librarian to provide a new direction for the instruction program, one that would include more online learning components. Both of these experts have helped transform teaching and learning ...
