Creating, Using, And Remixing Online Learning Objects And Multimodal Lesson Plans For Asynchronous And Synchronous Learning, Blake Spitz Oct 2020

Creating, Using, And Remixing Online Learning Objects And Multimodal Lesson Plans For Asynchronous And Synchronous Learning, Blake Spitz

New England Library Instruction Group

This presentation covers online teaching practices and technologies for remote (a)synchronous library instruction. While discussing various learning objects - digital surrogates, accessible videos, questionnaires, and interactive spaces - the focus is on hyperdoc style lesson plans combining resources into consolidated and accessible presentations. Hyperdoc lesson plans frame multimodal presentation and learning during classes, remain as legacy teaching objects for asynchronous and repeat learning, are adaptable into several formats for increased accessibility, and, with reuse and remixing, can aid in creating and marketing sustainable teaching programs. Examples of lesson plans, learning objects, activities, technologies, and dual purpose synchronous and asynchronous content will ...


Introducing Seamlessaccess.Org: Delivering A Simpler, Privacy-Preserving Access Experience, John W. Felts, Tim Lloyd, Emily Singley Oct 2020

Introducing Seamlessaccess.Org: Delivering A Simpler, Privacy-Preserving Access Experience, John W. Felts, Tim Lloyd, Emily Singley

Charleston Library Conference

Managing access to subscribed services in an era of abundance is a major challenge for libraries. Users have come to expect a seamless, personalized experience on their mobile devices, but traditional approaches to access management force librarians to choose between the anonymous ease of onsite IP authentication or the access friction experienced by users authenticating across multiple resources with Single Sign-On. Building on the work of the RA21 initiative, a recent NISO Recommended Practice on Improved Access to Institutionally Provided Information Resources charts a way forward. It will enable libraries to provide seamless, privacy-preserving and one-click access to its subscribed ...


Reconsidering Literacy, Audrey Powers, Marc Powers Oct 2020

Reconsidering Literacy, Audrey Powers, Marc Powers

Charleston Library Conference

Literacy, until recently, was defined as the ability to read printed text and to understand the nuances of both the form and content of that printed text. More recently there has been a focus on subsets of literacy – data literacy, numeracy, visual literacy, media literacy, etc. – that recognizes the means of communicating ideas and facts are not limited to the printed text and that there are multiple means which may be more powerful ways of communicating in our world. In recent years, higher education has been redefining what it means to be educated – from a focus on specific bodies of ...


What Are Students Saying About Their Reference Needs?, Damon Zucca Oct 2020

What Are Students Saying About Their Reference Needs?, Damon Zucca

Charleston Library Conference

Libraries and publishers rely on transactional data to support evidence-based decision making. However, by itself quantitative information does not provide a full picture. To anticipate the evolving needs of our audience we also need to hear from the individual users themselves. In this article, I will review the findings from several recent examples survey-based research into the question of how students use reference materials in and outside of their libraries. What are students actually saying about their needs and preferences when it comes to reference? While some uses cases for reference are moving out of the library into the open ...


How Libraries Can Increase The Number Of Opportunities For Students To Engage In High Impact Practices On Their Campus, Mark Dahl Oct 2020

How Libraries Can Increase The Number Of Opportunities For Students To Engage In High Impact Practices On Their Campus, Mark Dahl

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

Small liberal arts colleges often showcase high impact practices like student-faculty research and service learning on their websites. But too often these opportunities are limited to only a few exceptional students on a given campus. Libraries can help provide their communities with more opportunities for students to engage in high impact practices through practicums. Lewis & Clark’s Watzek Library has offered practicums in exhibit creation, software development, archival processing, oral history, data curation and other activities. The practicums are faculty-sponsored and library-led and give the student a mentored practical and intellectual experience. Depending on the practicum, they can involve writing ...

Covid And Sasquatch And Wildfires, Oh My! The Surprising Success Of An Asynchronous Event For First-Year Undergrads, Jenny Bruxvoort, Kate Wimer

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

Mysteries of Murdock began as an in-person Pacific Northwest themed mythbusting event for first-year students, helping them feel comfortable in library facilities and with library resources. In light of Fall 2020, we were challenged to reach this population with an excellent online alternative. This lightning talk will share our experience from iterative project management to goal setting to “event” hype. We’ll share our final product as well as brief insights from our assessment data. Attendees will leave understanding how asynchronous events fit in their toolbox of library programming and what elements are critical to making those events high-impact and ...


Hip, Hip, Hooray For Writing And Research!, Janet Hauck, Carrie Fry Oct 2020

Hip, Hip, Hooray For Writing And Research!, Janet Hauck, Carrie Fry

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

The offering of Writing-Intensive Courses is a High-Impact Practice familiar on most college campuses, including Seattle Pacific University’s. In his description of this HIP, author George Kuh states that “the effectiveness of this [writing] practice has led to parallel efforts in such areas as information literacy.” Here is the point at which librarians at SPU have stepped in to craft an innovative campus partnership, realigning our services to bring optimum success to our students. In collaboration with the SPU Writing Program, and inspired by another institution in the region, the SPU Library has opened the Research, Reading & Writing Studio ...


Service Learning As The Foundation For An Undergraduate Librarian-Taught Information And Society Course, Kristen Hoffman, Liz Gruchala-Gilbert Oct 2020

Service Learning As The Foundation For An Undergraduate Librarian-Taught Information And Society Course, Kristen Hoffman, Liz Gruchala-Gilbert

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

Service-Learning is an experiential educational practice where students participate in a service project tied closely with course concepts. In Spring of 2019, the presenters co-taught a course as part of the SPU Library’s Information Studies minor. This course utilized service-learning as a framework to understand the ways in which information (especially access to information and information technologies) affects those living in the local Seattle area. In partnership with the City of Seattle, students read and scored grant applications from local organizations working on digital equity projects. In response to their service, students wrote reflection essays documenting their experience and ...


Student Library Employment As A High-Impact Practice, Rick Stoddart Oct 2020

Student Library Employment As A High-Impact Practice, Rick Stoddart

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

Student employment in academic libraries mirrors many of the characteristics and positive aspects of high impact practices.

The University of Oregon Libraries is at the beginning stages of re-framing their library student employment experience as a high impact practice. Currently, the UO Libraries are having internal discussions, identifying student employment learning outcomes, and building relationships with campus stakeholders. Additionally, the UO Libraries is working with campus institutional research to pull datasets that may connect library student employment to broader student success metrics such as student retention.

This session will offer a broad outline of how library student employment is a ...

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

This lightning talk will introduce attendees to Western Libraries’ Integrated Academic Literacies Practicum, a 1-credit course designed to help underserved students build agency over their learning and empower participation in academic discourse. Through a partnership with the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio, this course pairs students with peer mentors who provide long-term scaffolding in a variety of academic literacies, including listening, speaking, reading, writing, and research. Students determine their learning goals at the beginning of the quarter (usually based on their coursework) and meet weekly with a peer mentor to practice and reflect on strategies for making progress towards those goals ...


The Engaged Library: High-Impact Educational Practices In Academic Libraries, Joan Ruelle, Deandra Little Oct 2020

The Engaged Library: High-Impact Educational Practices In Academic Libraries, Joan Ruelle, Deandra Little

High-Impact Practices in Academic Libraries

Keynote address:

High-impact educational practices (HIPs)—as identified by George Kuh and the Association of American Colleges & Universities (2008)—are widely recognized as activities that promote student engagement, student retention, and positive student learning outcomes. How these eleven practices are implemented may vary some, depending on institutional context and priorities, as well as on the learners themselves, but are all meant to create substantive activities that deepen student learning, engagement, and success. A persistent struggle for libraries has been articulating how libraries directly and indirectly contribute to student success, and calls to better measure and articulate the contributions of libraries ...

Developing Critical Thinking With Rhetorical Pedagogy, Elizabeth Ismail Jun 2020

Developing Critical Thinking With Rhetorical Pedagogy, Elizabeth Ismail

OSSA Conference Archive

The development of critical thinking skills is emphasized as a fundamental attribute of successful graduates (Ritchhart & Perkins, 2005; Willingham, 2008). Some critical thinking textbooks inform students to “see beyond the rhetoric to the core idea being stated” (Moore and Parker, 2009, p. 21); however, other scholars have begun to suggest that rhetoric is intrinsically interrelated to critical thinking and plays a pivotal role in everyday interactions (Saki, 2016). This paper explores the later.


Les Femmes Capables: A Supplementary Curriculum Teaching Survival English To Female Senegalese Ells, Abigail Morse May 2020

Les Femmes Capables: A Supplementary Curriculum Teaching Survival English To Female Senegalese Ells, Abigail Morse

Scholars Day Conference

My thesis examines the contrast between a Muslim man’s opportunity to learn English versus his wife's, who, in a traditional context, would be limited by social obligations to her home and family's welfare. I look specifically at the roles of Muslim Senegalese women. I provide basic cultural context and teaching methods to ESL teachers. I also provide basic vocabulary lists and lesson plans about important situations such as "going to the doctor." The language needed to complete daily tasks is not taught in general language classes, and my goal is to change that.


Child Abuse And School Performance, Rachel M. Smith May 2020

Child Abuse And School Performance, Rachel M. Smith

Scholars Day Conference

Data reports that child abuse impacts a large number of children. Because of this, a child's learning experience can be negatively impacted. Even though the percentage might be relatively small, when looking at the collective number on a national level, it means that a large population of children are affected.


English Language Learners At The University Of Illinois At Chicago Writing Center, Susan Ewa Panek Apr 2020

English Language Learners At The University Of Illinois At Chicago Writing Center, Susan Ewa Panek

2021 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

My experience tutoring at the UIC Writing Center has opened my eyes to the various obstacles that writers face, in particular writers who are English Language Learners (ELL). This inspired me to establish a qualitative research project investigating how a Writing Center can best support ELL writers not only in learning grammar and/or culturally specific writing conventions but also with the discrimination and stigmatization that they often face based on their not-yet-developed knowledge of Standard American English. The research question explored was: What are the possible advantages and disadvantages of a multilingual tutor working with an ELL writer in ...


Title Ix Effectiveness At American Universities, Corrine K. Girard Apr 2020

Title Ix Effectiveness At American Universities, Corrine K. Girard

Discovery Day - Prescott

The purpose of this research is to contribute to and improve existing university knowledge of the effectiveness of the University Title IX reporting process. After discussing experiences with Title IX with students at ERAU, it is apparent that there is a negative connotation among university students with this program. This research will build off of the research completed last year in which ERAU Title IX processes were compared to that of Occidental College and CalTech. This research aims to provide clarity to Title IX offices at the University to aid in successfully adapting their program to the needs of the ...

Engaging Professional Advocacy Through Community-Based Participatory Research And Community Engagement, Anastasha Homa-Earl Apr 2020

Engaging Professional Advocacy Through Community-Based Participatory Research And Community Engagement, Anastasha Homa-Earl

Graduate Student Research Symposium

Community engagement (CE) and service learning are trending in institutions of higher education, with instructors including community-based coursework to encourage applied, experiential learning (Henderson, 2017; Johnson, 2013). Counselors are called to advocate both for their clients and for the counseling profession overall, in addition to their role as change-makers in regards to the accessibility of services (ACA, 2014; ACA 2018). Some research suggests that interprofessional collaboration can be beneficial for addressing social advocacy efforts, and that advocacy and experiential learning can help to develop professional identity (e.g. Mellin, Hunt, & Nichols, 2010; Luke & Goodrich, 2010; Myers, Sweeney, & White, 2002). Despite these recommendations, there are ...


Identity And Advocacy: The Missing Components In Promoting Social-Emotional Health And Self-Regulation For Multiply Marginalized Girls, Jovonne Tabb, Temple S. Lovelace, Mary Comis, Olajumoke Oshokoya Apr 2020

Identity And Advocacy: The Missing Components In Promoting Social-Emotional Health And Self-Regulation For Multiply Marginalized Girls, Jovonne Tabb, Temple S. Lovelace, Mary Comis, Olajumoke Oshokoya

Graduate Student Research Symposium

Girlhood has been a topic of great interest in the last decade. As individuals have examined the lack of girls in STEM or the increase of bullying in girls, there has been a push to understanding the differential experiences along gender-based lines. In this study, the researchers highlight the results of the successful implementation of a group-based curriculum that utilized identity and advocacy as critical components in a treatment package focused on self-regulation. Using a pretest-posttest design, the researchers found a statistically significant difference in several key areas that are of key importance when supporting the needs of adolescent girls ...


The Impact Of Wellness Training On Resilience, Depression, And Anxiety In College Age Students, Jamie S. Myrtle Apr 2020

The Impact Of Wellness Training On Resilience, Depression, And Anxiety In College Age Students, Jamie S. Myrtle

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Data suggests that mental health disorders in college students are increasing. University personnel seek to help students better manage their mental health through access to campus counseling centers. Slow enrollment growth has placed pressure on university budgets making it difficult to fully fund counseling centers. Therefore, university personnel seek cost-effective interventions to meet the need. Increasing resilience has shown promise in reducing the overall impact of depression and anxiety. The purpose of the current study was to explore the impact of wellness training on resilience, depression, and anxiety to determine the effectiveness of the intervention in improving resilience and reducing ...

Cultural Diversity Awareness: Perceptions Of Community Residents And Police Personnel, Vickie Minnifield Greene Apr 2020

Cultural Diversity Awareness: Perceptions Of Community Residents And Police Personnel, Vickie Minnifield Greene

Scholar Week 2016 - present

This study examined the difference in self-reported perceptions of cultural diversity awareness between two specific groups, community residents and police personnel, within a Midwestern city’s community and police department. This study also measured how their attitudes related to their likelihood to assist in enhancing the goals of community policing, which includes the prevention of crime. Literature cited demonstrates that social injustice toward African Americans and Latinos, cultural diversity ignorance, miscommunication, and lack of trust between community residents and police personnel are indicators that their relationships require positive solutions toward repairing a historically strained relationship. The Miami University Diversity Awareness ...
