Using Focus Group Feedback: How The Uvu Fulton Library Incorporated Feedback To Make Improvements And Reach More Students, Annie Smith, Mary Stephens May 2019

Using Focus Group Feedback: How The Uvu Fulton Library Incorporated Feedback To Make Improvements And Reach More Students, Annie Smith, Mary Stephens

Annie Smith

In 2018 the UVU Fulton Library partnered with Institutional Research to run a Library Research Focus Group. They had 15 participants in two sessions. Students gave feedback on what was stressful about research, where they looked for help, and what barriers they experienced asking for help in the library. Using detailed qualitative data the Fulton Library addressed student concerns in instruction, wayfinding, and marketing reference services differently to tackle students’ needs.

This presentation will explore the existing research on different advising models and the ONU Social Work Program’s system for using assessment for accreditation to advise students toward professional growth.


Weaving Connections: Utilizing A Library-Social Work Partnership To Build Information Literacy Skills, David Vess, Laura Trull Mar 2018

Weaving Connections: Utilizing A Library-Social Work Partnership To Build Information Literacy Skills, David Vess, Laura Trull

Libraries

While evidence continues to build that information literacy (IL) is taught across university and college curricula at all student levels (Junsbai, Lowe & Tagge, 2016), challenges connecting IL to those curricula in meaningful ways persist (Julien, Gross, & Latham, 2018; Klomsri & Tedre, 2016; Bombaro 2013). Blending IL into social work education beyond traditional one-shot library sessions also remains a challenge as evidenced by the dearth of literature demonstrating sound instruction and assessment practices of IL in social work programs (Bausman & Ward, 2016; Kayser, Bowers, Jiang, & Bussey 2013; Johnson, Whitfield, & Grohe, 2011; Ismail, 2009; Brustman & Bernnard 2007; Bellard, 2005).

In their survey of information literacy in social work education in the United States, Bausman and Ward (2016), report that only 11% of respondents assess information literacy skills of their ...

Inciting Action: Assessment Reporting Strategies That Fuel Change And Improve Learning, Kathy E. Clarke, Gretchen A. Hazard Nov 2017

Inciting Action: Assessment Reporting Strategies That Fuel Change And Improve Learning, Kathy E. Clarke, Gretchen A. Hazard

Libraries

All assessment practitioners know the penultimate goal is loop closing. But we also live with the reality that assessment is also beholden to the Gods of Accountability. As assessment professionals, we dutifully attend to the cycle of improving student learning, but at each step in the cycle we must continue to hone our skills. Results reporting may seem like the least sexy of all of the steps in our practice, but we argue that is singularly important and represents a high art of assessment craft. Results must be engaging, actionable, meet accountability mandates, and importantly read by those who can ...

Information Digitization In The Humanities: The Cultural Assessment Interest Group, Hannah Scates Kettler Dec 2016

Information Digitization In The Humanities: The Cultural Assessment Interest Group, Hannah Scates Kettler

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

The Cultural Assessment Interest Group is a new Digital Library Federation Assessment Interest Group initiative that sprang from many conversations held during last year’s DLF Forum following Safiya Noble’s keynote about power structures in information technology entitled “Power, Privilege, and the Imperative to Act”, and continued to gain steam with the keynote during 2016’s DLF Forum by Stacie Williams “All Labor is Local”. Growing within the digital library community was a sense of unease as evidenced by the themes of such talks. Perhaps we have not been quite as aware we’d hoped when it came to ...


Forget Gate Counts: Assessing Transformative Programming, John M. Jackson Nov 2016

Forget Gate Counts: Assessing Transformative Programming, John M. Jackson

John M. Jackson

One of the five strategic goals of the William H. Hannon Library is to contribute to “formative and transformative
education of the whole person through outreach and programming.” Through events such as the annual Haunting
of Hannon, the Hannon Human Library, and the Spring Women’s Voices series, the library outreach team at
Loyola Marymount University seeks to create experiences that reach beyond connecting students to information
resources and highlight the library as a transformative force in student life. Measuring the success of these
experiences requires targeted evaluation methods similar to those used for library instruction. This presentation
will outline ...


Informed Learning, Information Literacy, And Scholarly Communication: Library Pedagogy As A Bridge To The Disciplines, Kim L. Ranger Oct 2016

Informed Learning, Information Literacy, And Scholarly Communication: Library Pedagogy As A Bridge To The Disciplines, Kim L. Ranger

Kim L. Ranger

This paper explores collaboration between librarians and faculty in higher education to construct connections between informed learning theory, information literacy practice, and disciplinary scholarly products to foster reflective and deep engagement with information.

Increasing digital innovations in communication and pedagogy, the need for various literacy capabilities, and the potential wisdom gained from considering diverse methodological perspectives have driven the need for interdisciplinary collaboration (Witt, 2012). There have also been several calls for a relational approach to teaching and learning, changing the roles of librarians (Farrell and Badke, 2015; Gunton et al, 2014; Jaguszewski and Williams, 2013), and scholarship which examines ...

The Art Of Discovery: Helping Students Find Inspiration In Unlikely Places, Kelly Grey Carlisle, Anne Jumonville Graf Apr 2016

The Art Of Discovery: Helping Students Find Inspiration In Unlikely Places, Kelly Grey Carlisle, Anne Jumonville Graf

Anne Jumonville Graf

How can an "old space" like Special Collections be repurposed to meet evolving information literacy learning goals? This presentation will address ways in which a traditional library space can be reimagined as a place to engage students in affective learning at the beginning of the research process. By crafting activities for students that emphasize exploration and open-ended discovery, librarians and faculty can help students slow down and approach research more creatively. In the session, we (two librarians and a teaching faculty member) will share specific outcomes, activities, and the results of our assessments. Participants will: Understand the importance of affective ...

Developing A Practical Framework For Information Literacy Program Evaluation, Paul Bracke, Clarence Maybee, Sharon Weiner

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

This presentation was given at the Library Assessment Conference held from October 31–November 2, 2016 in Arlington, VA. The Purdue University Libraries, like many academic libraries, face increased expectations for demonstrating their value and impact. The Libraries launched a project to advance an outcomes-based, mission-centric framework for evaluating its information literacy programing. The methods for developing this framework consist of four steps: 1) focus groups with librarians to gain a more comprehensive understanding of existing assessment practices, 2) analysis of focus group findings, characterizing current assessment practices, 3) a gap analysis, comparing focus group findings to the information literacy ...

Learning From Our Students Through Learning Assessments, Mary T. Moser, Megan Klein Hattori May 2015

Learning From Our Students Through Learning Assessments, Mary T. Moser, Megan Klein Hattori

Mary T. Moser

Learning assessments can point to which pedagogical tools are most effective at improving students’ knowledge and skills. Inspired by the sociology department’s learning assessment program, we present a pre- and post-test assessment of students’ perceptions of their term paper writing skills in a senior seminar and a graduate seminar. Pedagogical techniques in these courses included incorporating the instructor’s research through parallel writing, bringing technology into the classroom through the iPads program, and collaborating with library staff to support student learning through library research. The pre-test captures students’ perceived abilities to find peer-reviewed resources, communicate ideas effectively in writing ...

Using Social Media In The Classroom: Assessment Of Its Effectiveness., Jennifer Wright Jul 2014

Using Social Media In The Classroom: Assessment Of Its Effectiveness., Jennifer Wright

Jennifer Wright Joe

Social media can be an effective tool in promoting critical thinking and collaboration in library instruction. Whether it is simple polls or a much more collaborative event, these methods engage students and allow them to interact with material, professors, and other students in an organized fashion that might not be feasible without the use of technology. However, many faculty members are quick to incorporate these new learning tools without regard to their effectiveness. In this session, several applications of social media will be presented and their effectiveness will be discussed. Then, to conclude, the participants will discuss the best way ...

Now That You Have Created A Great Video, How Do You Know If Anyone Is Learning From It?, Claudia J. Dold

Claudia J. Dold

Video offers a wide range of benefits a useful teaching tool, and librarians are using it to make all kinds of information available. I have created two series of videos at my university library concerning library and research skills: one for undergraduates and the other for graduates. This past year, I undertook four studies to determine whether students use the videos and under what circumstances.

Assessing The Strategic Credibility Of Special Collections, Erin Passehl, Rick A. Stoddart May 2012

Assessing The Strategic Credibility Of Special Collections, Erin Passehl, Rick A. Stoddart

Rick A Stoddart

In this time of often precarious funding at many colleges and universities, any case that can be made to illustrate how a department strategically fits into the overall university mission is not only worth merit, but an essential survival technique. This “strategic credibility” within the university is a vital form of currency in determining institution-wide resources prioritization, collaboration opportunities between organizational units, and overall direction of departments. This paper presents a case study of academic special collections in the Northwest and examines the methods these departments use to demonstrate value to the university. This paper considers how well do special ...

The Assessment Buffet, #11;Coming Back For Thirds, Elisa Slater Acosta

Elisa Slater Acosta

Every year we use assessment to bake a better batch of library instruction for freshman English students. This presentation addresses the universal challenge that many instruction librarians face, “How can we assess student learning outcomes in a one-shot instruction session?” LMU’s Reference Department created a standardized introduction to the research process which could apply to any topic, developed learning objectives, and measured them for the three years. The presenter will highlight assessment successes and what went back to the Test Kitchen. Our assessment buffet consists of a variety of sweet dishes: a worksheet and grading rubric, interactive online LibGuide ...
