Open Your Research Without Opening Your Wallet, Janelle L. Wertzberger Nov 2015

Open Your Research Without Opening Your Wallet, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Janelle Wertzberger

Open scholarship promotes sharing and collaboration, increases readership, and amplifies impact. It is gaining traction as institutions, professional associations, and funding agencies encourage or require broad sharing of research results. Yet many authors believe that the only way to open their work is to pay publishers thousands of dollars for the privilege. Luckily for us, that just isn’t the case. Come hear about a range of ways to open your research without paying for the privilege! Lunch provided. (Limited seating, RSVP to jwertzbe@gettysburg.edu)


Optimizing Merlot For Optimal Ict Literacy, Lesley S. Farmer Oct 2015

Optimizing Merlot For Optimal Ict Literacy, Lesley S. Farmer

Open Access Conference

Today's students need to locate, use and share information in myriad formats; they need to be ICT (information and communication technology) literacy. The CSU system has started an ICT Literacy Initiative to build out the MERLOT collection of ICT literacy learning objects, and to help faculty integrate ICT literacy into their curricula. This session explains ICT literacy, especially in terms of new standards. Attendees will find out how MERLOT supports ICT literacy, and how they can join and contribute to the ICT literacy community.

This Is How We Video It: Creating, Finding, And Implementing Videos In F2f, Online, And Hybrid Classes, Kim Read

Kim Read

Do you use videos in your online, hybrid, or f2f classes? Do you make your own videos? If so, what software or apps do you use? Do you use e-authoring tools like Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline? Do you use iMovie or free video apps like Animoto and GoAnimate? How do use them? What are the benefits and drawbacks of your chosen video technology? Do you have a YouTube channel? What are your YouTube best practices? Do you use videos that others make? If so, how do you find them? Do you search video libraries like Khan Academy or Merlot ...

Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields Oct 2015

Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields

Crystal L Renfro

Complex research projects can be difficult to conceptualize and communicate clearly because of the number of concepts involved and the relationships among them. We will look at visual tools including concept maps, mind maps and argument maps which help advanced students, faculty, and librarians as they move from the stage of envisioning a research idea into the early stages of fashioning the product.


Evaluating A Linked-Courses Learning Community For Development Majors, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach Sep 2015

Evaluating A Linked-Courses Learning Community For Development Majors, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

Despite a rebound in enrollments, men of color and women remain underrepresented in computing. The literature indicates that student-student interaction and affinity for the computing major are important factors for retention of underrepresented groups in computing, and learning communities connect students with each other and faculty to improve collaboration, interaction, enthusiasm. Despite their long history and promise for addressing retention, computing-focused learning communities remain rare. Here we present an evaluation of a linked-courses learning community for men of color and women majoring in a development-focused area of computing. We measure student attitudes and affinity for their major via a survey ...


Information Technology And Computer Science Programs: How Do We Relate?, Bonnie K. Mackellar, Gregory Hislop, Mihaela C. Sabin, Amber Settle Sep 2015

Information Technology And Computer Science Programs: How Do We Relate?, Bonnie K. Mackellar, Gregory Hislop, Mihaela C. Sabin, Amber Settle

Amber Settle

In this panel session, the relationship between computer science programs and information technology programs at universities that house both will be explored. People outside the computing disciplines often find the distinction between these programs confusing. The panelists, who have experience with both types of program, will discuss strategies for differentiating the programs in the eyes of administrators, for advising students into the correct program, and for maintaining focus and excellence in both computer science and information technology programs.


The Core 4 Assessment Test Bank: One Stop Shopping For Information Literacy Assessment!, Rachel Cooke, Jenna Enomoto, Kim Reycraft, Steve Rokusek, Heather Snapp Sep 2015

The Core 4 Assessment Test Bank: One Stop Shopping For Information Literacy Assessment!, Rachel Cooke, Jenna Enomoto, Kim Reycraft, Steve Rokusek, Heather Snapp

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

In Fall 2013, academic librarians at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) set out to develop their own instructional assessment test bank to evaluate library program effectiveness, improve the student learning experience and determine if library services were effectively developing information literacy skills in learners. Using the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (2000) adopted by ACRL in conjunction with their own information literacy plan, they focused on four critical competency areas: information access points, search tool selection, library website utilization, and classification schemes.

This panel presentation provides an overview of the challenges and successes they experienced in creating and ...


Partnering With Teaching Faculty To Incorporate The Framework For Information Literacy For Higher Education, Tami Robinson Sep 2015

Partnering With Teaching Faculty To Incorporate The Framework For Information Literacy For Higher Education, Tami Robinson

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Whitworth University Library developed Library Instruction/ Information Literacy Objectives based on the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education that we have been using for the past decade. Endorsed, in 2008 by the Library & Information Resources Committee, comprised of teaching faculty, these objectives are aimed at specific learning outcomes for the First Year Seminar, writing composition, and discipline specific courses. The progression of information literacy skills reflected in these objectives begins at the basic introductory level, then moves on to basic research skills, and finally to complex discipline specific research skills. Faculty buy-in has been sporadic and uneven among ...

A Computer Science Linked-Courses Learning Community, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach Jun 2015

A Computer Science Linked-Courses Learning Community, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

Previous work has shown that factors such as student engagement and involvement can impact progress for computer science majors. One promising approach for improving student engagement is learning communities, which have a long history in academia but are relatively uncommon in computing. In this article we describe a linked-courses learning community for women and men of color majoring in development-focused computing degrees. We provide logistical information about the first offering of the learning community and assess the effectiveness of the community via a student survey. Our results show that students in the learning community are more likely to report that ...

Introducing Undergraduates To Open Access And The Power Of Collaboration Between Scholarly Communications And Instruction Librarians, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker, Annie Knight Apr 2015

Introducing Undergraduates To Open Access And The Power Of Collaboration Between Scholarly Communications And Instruction Librarians, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker, Annie Knight

Library Presentations, Posters, and Videos

Undergraduates are often left out of conversations surrounding open access. While they may not share the same concerns about publishing and prestige as faculty and graduate students, they do consume vast amounts of information, and thus can benefit just as much as those farther in their academic careers by knowing how to find, evaluate, and use open access resources. This presentation highlights a successful collaboration between the presenters in their respective roles as scholarly communications librarian and course developer to create and implement curriculum for a 3-unit information literacy course to teach undergraduate students about open access principles. Once the ...

Meeting Patrons At The Point Of Need: Envisioning A Just-In-Time Repository For Oregon Libraries, Kim Read, Lori Wamsley Apr 2015

Meeting Patrons At The Point Of Need: Envisioning A Just-In-Time Repository For Oregon Libraries, Kim Read, Lori Wamsley

Kim Read

What if libraries across Oregon shared a repository of how-to instructional videos and tutorials? What if patron questions like, “How do I download an eBook?” could be answered by a slick two-minute video that any library using the same eBook platform could embed at the point-of-need? With an eye towards design thinking, performance support, instructional design, creative collaboration, and technology wrangling, these are the questions that we’ll address in this active discussion. Together, we’ll envision what instructional content could best be shared among Oregon libraries and how point-of-need resources could support library patrons at all different types of ...
