Beyond Research: Opencourseware In The Institutional Repository, Heather Leary, Brett E. Shelton, Marion Jensen Oct 2009

Beyond Research: Opencourseware In The Institutional Repository, Heather Leary, Brett E. Shelton, Marion Jensen

Library Faculty & Staff Presentations

Presentation given at the 2009 LITA National Forum in Salt Lake City, Utah on archiving OpenCourseWare in the Institutional Repository.

The main function of OpenCourseWare is to provide open access to collections of educational materials used in formal courses. The main function of an Institutional Repository is to collect, preserve, and disseminate intellectual output of an institution. Since OCW is a significant portion of the intellectual output of a university, archiving OCW in an institutions repository seems a perfect marriage of means and opportunity.

Making It Click: Using An Audience Response System To Engage Students And Assess Learning, Ann Marie Smeraldi Mar 2009

Making It Click: Using An Audience Response System To Engage Students And Assess Learning, Ann Marie Smeraldi

Ann Marie Smeraldi

As accessibility to technology in the classroom increases and promises to improve student engagement and performance, it is easy to be tempted into using wikis, blogs and clickers without fully understanding the implications of their use. Librarians and other educators continuously experiment with new technologies in an attempt to lure Millennials away from their iPods and cell phones, but without careful consideration of the pedagogy that supports the use of these new technologies, their effectiveness as learning tools is diminished. This session will focus on the use of an audience response system (“clickers”) to engage students in active learning during ...

Institutional And International Community Development: World Learning/Sit Case Study, Rebecca Hovey

Rebecca Hovey

In this workshop we posed the question: How to engage with/build partnerships or solidarity with communities in Global Service-Learning? This case study describes SIT Study Abroad programs as a form of community-based education: integrating community members as mentors, educators and part of the local “faculty”. This has profound implications in terms of academic content, knowledge generation, who benefits from the projects and accumulated knowledge gained from field service, and the global citizen responsibilities of the home university in terms of fair intellectual property and labor.

Academic Librarian Integration Into Teacher Education Distance Learning Programs, Brenna Helmstutler Dec 2008

Academic Librarian Integration Into Teacher Education Distance Learning Programs, Brenna Helmstutler

Brenna Helmstutler

Having convenient, instant access to electronic library resources in academia is excellent as research can be conducted literally anywhere and at anytime; however, a level of user self-direction is required for optimal results, creating the need for librarian interaction to guide the user towards acquiring this self-direction most effectively. As more institutions add online degree programs, it is essential that librarians are integrated within so that participating students have access to the same (or at least, equivalent) library resources and services as those who are on campus, and also develop sound research skills for information literacy acquisition. Although librarians have ...
