Flipping The Business Information Literacy Classroom: Redesign, Implementation And Assessment Of A Case Study, Ilana Stonebraker Jun 2015

Flipping The Business Information Literacy Classroom: Redesign, Implementation And Assessment Of A Case Study, Ilana Stonebraker

Libraries Faculty and Staff Scholarship and Research

A team of librarians at Purdue University transformed a business information literacy course from a traditional lecture, 40-student class into multiple sections of a flipped, 70-student classroom to meet the request that the successful course be required for all 500 undergraduate students. Scaling up required the adoption of flipped learning techniques for better utilization of library teaching resources. This case study provides key insights for others implementing credit classes or integrating similar content into one-shots or embedded work. It also describes the assessed results determined through student feedback (focus groups) and student performance (pre/post-tests).


Integrating External Resources Into Health Informatics And Computing Instruction: Emerging Roles For Librarians And Information Professionals, Daina R. Bouquin, Michael E. Bales Apr 2015

Integrating External Resources Into Health Informatics And Computing Instruction: Emerging Roles For Librarians And Information Professionals, Daina R. Bouquin, Michael E. Bales

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Background: In informatics courses, instructors often present materials in a didactic, module-by-module fashion; however, they may not readily integrate outside materials to facilitate learning. This may be due to a lack of time or expertise in identifying appropriate external resources. Librarians are uniquely suited to address this gap.

Setting/Participants: A librarian (D.B.) and a digital curation fellow (M.B.) taught a graduate level course on computational methods in health informatics. Students were mainly from basic science and informatics programs and had varying levels of computational experience.

Purpose: The objective of the course was to promote critical thinking about ...


Data Information Literacy And Undergraduates: A Critical Competency, Yasmeen Shorish Mar 2015

Data Information Literacy And Undergraduates: A Critical Competency, Yasmeen Shorish

Yasmeen Shorish

As a primer on data information literacy (DIL), this column will cover the background of the field and why it is relevant to college and university libraries serving undergraduate populations. This article includes how data information literacy relates to information literacy, competencies associated with DIL, the relevance of DIL to undergraduates, DIL in library instruction, and the reasons for library engagement with DIL. Examining DIL within the larger framework of information literacy can help outreach and instruction librarians engage with a format that may be unfamiliar to them but whose underlying foundation is well-established.

Law librarians are experts in instruction, databases, scholarship, and more. This broad expertise has exacerbated an identity crisis in the profession. The author argues that law librarians must develop a core identity, such as legal literacy, to navigate an ever-changing legal landscape that questions the future necessity of law librarians.
