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.

Over the last decade, the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has considered the lack of diversity in the game industry workforce a quality of life issue. Using the results of our recent study on demographics of undergraduate students in game degree programs, we compare our data against data reported in the 2005 IGDA Quality of Life survey.

Open Culture At The Heart Of The University: Libraries As Multicommons, Anna K. Gold Sep 2013

Open Culture At The Heart Of The University: Libraries As Multicommons, Anna K. Gold

Anna K. Gold

The university library can be reconceptualized as a powerful engine for open culture. A generative and regenerative center that naturally brings disciplines, cultures, and generations together, the university library can expand its role in open culture far beyond sharing institutionally-produced research and data through open repositories. Drawing on the experience of a public polytechnic university, this presentation documents the emergence of a university library as a system of open culture programs and as a place where a speeding culture can stop to dialogue, think, and create: generating collective interactive learning; fostering collaboration with open data; cultivating open conversations and learning ...

This often depends on a deeper understanding of the nature of these activities and experiences.

Active Learning In The Library: Stewarding Funds And Cutting Cables, Ryan Ingersoll Jun 2013

Active Learning In The Library: Stewarding Funds And Cutting Cables, Ryan Ingersoll

Ryan Ingersoll

I share about my experience converting a traditional computer lab in the library to an active learning space. During summer 2012, the Seattle Pacific University Library staff proposed, planned, and implemented the conversion of a traditional lab space with 22 desktop computers into an active learning classroom. We equipped the room with mobile furniture, a wireless interactive, short-throw projector with digital pens, a new MacBook Pro checkout system, and put a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Partnering with librarians, Facilities, and Instructional Technology Services, the project came together just before the new academic school year.

Dr. Grace Hui Chin Lin 林慧菁 英語教學 語文學哲學博士 886 933 503 321

The major purpose of this qualitative research was to find out how the Taiwanese university EFL learners felt about learning the five communication strategies of reduction and achievement sets.

The samples of this training were twenty-four Taiwanese university students, none of whom majored in English in a Freshman Non-English Majors’ class. The results showed, for the reduction set of communication strategy, seven respondents tended to feel topic avoidance was an applicable ...
