A Pilot Competency Matrix For Data Management Skills: A Step Toward The Development Of Systematic Data Information Literacy Programs, Megan R. Sapp Nelson 2017 Purdue University

A Pilot Competency Matrix For Data Management Skills: A Step Toward The Development Of Systematic Data Information Literacy Programs, Megan R. Sapp Nelson

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Initial work in identifying data management or data information literacy skills generally went as far as identifying a list of proposed competencies without further differentiation between those competencies, whether by discipline, complexity, or use case. This article describes a significant innovation upon existing competencies by identifying a scaffolding (built upon existing competencies) that moves students progressively from undergraduate training through post graduate coursework and research to post-doctoral work and into the early years of data stewardship. The scaffolding ties together existing research that has been completed in research data management skills and data information literacy with research into the outcomes ...


The Value Of Narrative Methods For Library Instruction, Joseph Holterman, Jennifer Turner 2017 Minnesota State University - Mankato

The Value Of Narrative Methods For Library Instruction, Joseph Holterman, Jennifer Turner

Jennifer Turner

While serving as a guide to students who are seeking information, an instruction librarian might present a research process as an unfolding ‘story.’ This session will explore several ways that such stories can enliven our instructional presentations and serve a creative and engaging purpose. Although the presentation will introduce flexible ideas that could be applied to a variety of goals and objectives, we will focus on library instruction with undergraduate students, typically within their academic major. The presentation will suggest concrete ways to develop inquiry-based instruction and lead toward the integration of library instruction with an information literacy program.


Essentials Of Instructional Design: Skills To Benefit The Library Profession [Presentation], Jennifer M. Turner 2017 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Essentials Of Instructional Design: Skills To Benefit The Library Profession [Presentation], Jennifer M. Turner

Jennifer Turner

Librarians across library types frequently find themselves positioned as educators. To ensure learner needs are defined and addressed in formal and informal educational settings, librarians should gain basic competency in instructional design. Additionally, instructional design skills have the potential to benefit librarians in non-teaching roles. This presentation summarizes a research project examining how librarians across library types and departments can benefit from instructional design skills, identifies core instructional design competencies for librarians, and suggests opportunities for research to investigate how librarians might best acquire these skills.


Instructional Design: Skills To Benefit The Library Profession, Jennifer M. Turner 2017 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Instructional Design: Skills To Benefit The Library Profession, Jennifer M. Turner

Jennifer Turner

Librarians in many types of libraries frequently find themselves positioned as instructors in formal and informal educational settings. Librarians can help ensure that learner needs are better defined and addressed by gaining basic competency in instructional design (ID), an intentional process used to create effective, efficient educational and training programs. Additionally, instructional design skills have the potential to benefit librarians in nonteaching roles. This paper examines existing library literature to determine how librarians can benefit from ID skills and to identify core ID competencies for the profession, and suggests opportunities to investigate how librarians might best acquire these skills.

Learning From Recent British Information Literacy Models: A Report To Acrl's Information Literacy Competency Standards For Higher Education Task Force, Justine Martin

Justine Martin

Information literacy is a fluid concept, shaped by our experiences, and changes in our information rich society. Guidelines articulating information literacy need modification to reflect the current form of this evolving concept. This report highlights the work of four groups in the United Kingdom to create innovative guidelines to assist practitioners in the promotion and teaching of information literacy.

Refreshing Information Literacy: Learning From Recent British Information Literacy Models, Justine Martin

Justine Martin

Models play an important role in helping practitioners implement and promote information literacy. Over time models can lose relevance with the advances in technology, society, and learning theory. Practitioners and scholars often call for adaptations or transformations of these frameworks to articulate the learning needs in information literacy development. This study analyzes four recently published models from the United Kingdom. The initial findings were presented in a report for an ACRL taskforce reviewing the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. This article presents complementary, yet distinct findings from the same dataset that focus on reoccurring themes for information literacy ...

This chapter recounts the outcomes and experiences of six American librarians who participated in an international librarian exchange program that ran from spring 2010 through fall 2011. The exchange brought together the City University of New York (CUNY) and two universities in Shanghai, China: Shanghai University (SU) and Shanghai Normal University (SNU). The program was inspired, in part, by recognition of the diversity of CUNY’s student body and growing awareness of the increasing globalization of information and education. For the Chinese librarians, the exchange offered an opportunity to learn from the West and showcase their own innovations. The traveling ...
