Open Your Research Without Opening Your Wallet, Janelle L. Wertzberger Nov 2015

Open Your Research Without Opening Your Wallet, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Janelle Wertzberger

Open scholarship promotes sharing and collaboration, increases readership, and amplifies impact. It is gaining traction as institutions, professional associations, and funding agencies encourage or require broad sharing of research results. Yet many authors believe that the only way to open their work is to pay publishers thousands of dollars for the privilege. Luckily for us, that just isn’t the case. Come hear about a range of ways to open your research without paying for the privilege! Lunch provided. (Limited seating, RSVP to jwertzbe@gettysburg.edu)

By completion of this module, each resident will have articulated his or her personal standards of professional behavior and have made a written commitment to strive for those standards in everyday clinical situations.

To evaluate the effectiveness of this module, a brief survey was distributed to current and former residents who had completed the module. The survey presented a series of 10 statements and asked participants to report their level ...

Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields

Crystal L Renfro

Complex research projects can be difficult to conceptualize and communicate clearly because of the number of concepts involved and the relationships among them. We will look at visual tools including concept maps, mind maps and argument maps which help advanced students, faculty, and librarians as they move from the stage of envisioning a research idea into the early stages of fashioning the product.

Evaluating A Linked-Courses Learning Community For Development Majors, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach Sep 2015

Evaluating A Linked-Courses Learning Community For Development Majors, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

Despite a rebound in enrollments, men of color and women remain underrepresented in computing. The literature indicates that student-student interaction and affinity for the computing major are important factors for retention of underrepresented groups in computing, and learning communities connect students with each other and faculty to improve collaboration, interaction, enthusiasm. Despite their long history and promise for addressing retention, computing-focused learning communities remain rare. Here we present an evaluation of a linked-courses learning community for men of color and women majoring in a development-focused area of computing. We measure student attitudes and affinity for their major via a survey ...

Information Technology And Computer Science Programs: How Do We Relate?, Bonnie K. Mackellar, Gregory Hislop, Mihaela C. Sabin, Amber Settle

Amber Settle

In this panel session, the relationship between computer science programs and information technology programs at universities that house both will be explored. People outside the computing disciplines often find the distinction between these programs confusing. The panelists, who have experience with both types of program, will discuss strategies for differentiating the programs in the eyes of administrators, for advising students into the correct program, and for maintaining focus and excellence in both computer science and information technology programs.


Partnering With Teaching Faculty To Incorporate The Framework For Information Literacy For Higher Education, Tami Robinson Sep 2015

Partnering With Teaching Faculty To Incorporate The Framework For Information Literacy For Higher Education, Tami Robinson

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Whitworth University Library developed Library Instruction/ Information Literacy Objectives based on the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education that we have been using for the past decade. Endorsed, in 2008 by the Library & Information Resources Committee, comprised of teaching faculty, these objectives are aimed at specific learning outcomes for the First Year Seminar, writing composition, and discipline specific courses. The progression of information literacy skills reflected in these objectives begins at the basic introductory level, then moves on to basic research skills, and finally to complex discipline specific research skills. Faculty buy-in has been sporadic and uneven among ...

The Core 4 Assessment Test Bank: One Stop Shopping For Information Literacy Assessment!, Rachel Cooke, Jenna Enomoto, Kim Reycraft, Steve Rokusek, Heather Snapp

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

In Fall 2013, academic librarians at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) set out to develop their own instructional assessment test bank to evaluate library program effectiveness, improve the student learning experience and determine if library services were effectively developing information literacy skills in learners. Using the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (2000) adopted by ACRL in conjunction with their own information literacy plan, they focused on four critical competency areas: information access points, search tool selection, library website utilization, and classification schemes.

This panel presentation provides an overview of the challenges and successes they experienced in creating and ...


Timely Tutorials Without Too Much Time, Elizabeth Fox Sep 2015

Timely Tutorials Without Too Much Time, Elizabeth Fox

Elizabeth Fox

Having tutorials can bring instruction to your patrons when they need it, even if you are in bed and asleep. Creating tutorials can be a time-consuming process and then keeping them up to date uses even more time. This session will provide tips and tricks for creating many types of tutorials that are quick to create (quick still being a relative term) and even quicker to keep up to date. Incorporated into the session will be best practices in tutorial creation.

Gendered Pronouns In The Classroom (August 24, 2015)

Center for Faculty Enrichment

Gendered Pronouns in the Classroom- Monday 8/24 4-5pm in Gävle Room 1

Last spring, the college community asserted that it will be inclusive of people of all genders. Since this affirmation, members of the campus community have requested professional development about the basic ideas in this discussion ("What is the difference between sex and gender?") as well as techniques for being inclusive ("How can I avoid misgendering a student or respond when others do?"). In this session, we will share foundational vocabulary, develop strategies for inclusion around gendered pronouns, and hold a Q&A with a couple of students ...

Quantitative Reasoning: Interdisciplinary Stem 21st Century Reasoning Modality, Robert L. Mayes Jul 2015

Quantitative Reasoning: Interdisciplinary Stem 21st Century Reasoning Modality, Robert L. Mayes

Teaching and Learning Faculty Presentations

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS 2013) and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (NGA 2010) call for improving scientific, engineering, and mathematical practices. Among the practices called for are model-based reasoning which engages students in developing and using models, analyzing and interpreting data, and using mathematics and computational thinking. Fundamental to these processes is quantitative reasoning (QR), which for this project is defined as:

Quantitative reasoning is mathematics and statistics applied in real-life, authentic situations that impact an individual’s life as a constructive, concerned, and reflective citizen (Mayes et al. 2014b).

In the NSF project, Culturally Relevant ...


Forging Ahead To College: Latino And African American Students’ Experiences With Their Former School Counselors, Amy Cook, Arthur Mccann Jul 2015

Forging Ahead To College: Latino And African American Students’ Experiences With Their Former School Counselors, Amy Cook, Arthur Mccann

Arthur McCann

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, a student drops out of school every nine seconds, with Latino and African American students being disproportionately represented. A survey-based study conducted with a diverse group of college students regarding experiences with their former high school counselor revealed evidence-based interventions that could be implemented with Latino and African American students to promote college attainment. This session will provide you with the knowledge to address impediments that Latino and African American students encounter and how to promote college access. Discussion and sharing information about various school counselor practices will be encouraged.
