Exceeding The Limits: Teaching And Assessing Information Literacy Within Blackboard, Jon Ritterbush Jul 2015

Exceeding The Limits: Teaching And Assessing Information Literacy Within Blackboard, Jon Ritterbush

Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings

Many librarians can relate to the pedagogical limitations of one-shot classes and the challenges of reaching large numbers of first-year students. The Library Research Tutorial at the University of Nebraska-Kearney was designed to go beyond time and space constraints to orient new undergraduate students to library resources and research methods using self-paced modules within a Blackboard course. Since Fall 2011, over 2,400 students have been enrolled in the Tutorial at the request of their course instructors, who in turn receive students’ Tutorial quiz scores for use as graded credit. This paper describes the Tutorial’s contents, enrollment and grading ...

A Newcomer’S Perspective On The Changing Academic Library: Library To Learning Commons, Lauren Hays, Lindsey Warner

Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings

Academic libraries are undergoing a great deal of change as they transform themselves from a traditional library to a learning commons.

Library schools are responding to transformations in the field through changes in recruitment practices, advising strategies, technology integration, and curriculum. The combined goal of these activities is to ensure that schools can create a diverse group of graduates who are prepared to meet the pedagogical, technological, and administrative challenges of the changing academic library environment ...

Bridges To The Future: Teaching Information Literacy Across Standards, Institutions, And The Workforce, Janet Anderson-Story, Mirah Dow, Cynthia Kane, Carmaine Ternes

Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings

Teaching information literacy skills to prepare young adults for the demands of a technologically modern workforce requires collaboration between schools and libraries. Identifying opportunities to build bridges that enable smooth transitions for information literacy learning across content areas, standards, and institutions requires collaboration among librarians. Perspectives and discoveries of four librarians (secondary school, two-year technical college, and an undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate degree granting university) engaged in collaboration are examined. Collaboration resulted in a common framework for teaching information literacy skills designed with the goal of developing academic and workforce competencies including accessing, sorting, evaluating, and incorporating reliable information into ...
