English Is Not Dead! Long Live English: Teaching The Evolution Of English And Inclusive Communication Via Online, Face To Face Or Hybrid Instruction, Teresa Marie Kelly, Stephanie Thompson, Sheryl Bone Apr 2022

English Is Not Dead! Long Live English: Teaching The Evolution Of English And Inclusive Communication Via Online, Face To Face Or Hybrid Instruction, Teresa Marie Kelly, Stephanie Thompson, Sheryl Bone

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

When popular media and many individuals discuss changes in English, some erroneously contend that the language has always been the same and changes amount to little more than “politically correct woke liberalism” desired by only certain people. The English language continually evolves as a natural process that nothing can force nor prevent. Field-specific language also changes with increased understanding and knowledge. The variety of English taught to most students also shifts as Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)/Writing Across Disciplines (WAD) initiatives increasingly focus on Global English rather than the standard of any one country or group. Even informal interactions ...


Painless Plagiarism: Collaboration To Develop An Interdisciplinary Plagiarism Tutorial, Lauren Mcmillan Apr 2022

Painless Plagiarism: Collaboration To Develop An Interdisciplinary Plagiarism Tutorial, Lauren Mcmillan

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

During the Spring and Summer of 2021, Reference & Instruction Librarians collaborated with an Instructional Designer to create a university branded plagiarism tutorial. Utilizing open access/open educational resources provided a template, while being able to customize to the institution’s needs by incorporating elements from the university’s academic dishonesty policy.

The main goals were to have an interactive tutorial where concepts like patchwriting and paraphrasing are suitably explained and students have the opportunity to test their knowledge throughout. Additionally, having a final assessment/quiz to prove students completed the tutorial was important to faculty. The tutorial is housed on ...

Critical Thinking In The Age Of Misinformation: Information Literacy For Citizenship, Tamra Ortgies-Young, Jennfer Lobo Meeks, Barbara Robertson

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

As recent political events across the globe have shed a light on the fragility of democratic values, the role of the University in creating a framework for civic education becomes more urgent. Informed, caring and engaged citizenry must be a goal of higher education. Students currently face the emergence of faulty types of information - such as misinformation and disinformation, which undermines the notion of collective or public inquiry, not only within universities, but also within society as a whole. This challenge must be acknowledged and addressed by academic institutions.

Session presenters will provide an overview of their work, “Critical Thinking ...

Faculty Co-Acting: Merging Information Literacy With Inclusive Pedagogy, Kay Coates, Beverly King Miller

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Opportunities for humanizing teaching and learning in poly-synchronous and hybrid instruction settings are undeniable blessings of having to adapt to COVID-19 predictable unpredictability. The ACRL Information Literacy Framework is one such instrument that ideally adapts to this purpose. Intentional collaborative efforts between instruction librarians and faculty could allow for information literacy praxis to be incorporated into differentiated instruction. Under the canopy of Inclusive Pedagogy this admixture could be engagingly contextualized and actively executed in desired learning spaces during times like these. Realizing the needs of students who will be entering classroom settings with learning disruptions, this partnership marries information literacy ...

At the same time, first year college students continue to need foundational information literacy skills in order to be successful in their assigned research projects. At the presenters’ institution, most library-led instruction emphasizes strategies and resources for success in an academic context, without much focus on other information landscapes, such as social media. This presentation will share ...

Systematically Assessing Lms-Embedded Asynchronous Information Literacy Modules For Perceived Impact And Quality At Georgetown’S School Of Continuing Studies Library, Ladislava Khailova, Emily Guhde, Matthew Bernstein

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

For the past five years, librarians at Georgetown’s (GU) School of Continuing Studies (SCS) Library have supplemented their synchronous instructional offerings with in-house video tutorials to cater to the School’s growing online and hybrid student population and to scale up information literacy efforts. The pandemic has accelerated this trend, with the SCS librarians increasingly moving away from viewing their video tutorials as primarily stand-alone digital learning objects and conceiving of them rather as a part of carefully planned out LMS-embedded, discipline-specific modules addressing high-stakes information literacy concepts. This presentation focuses on the effort to systematically assess the perceived ...


Reimagine The Possibilities: Shifting A Peer-Reference Program From In-Person To Online To Hybrid, Lydia C. Gwyn Mar 2022

Reimagine The Possibilities: Shifting A Peer-Reference Program From In-Person To Online To Hybrid, Lydia C. Gwyn

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

In 2017, the Sherrod Library at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) launched the Library Ambassador Program (LAP), a peer-reference program through which trained undergraduate students employed by the library are stationed in buildings across campus to help students with their research. Just as the LAP was gaining traction as an effective avenue of research help, our college made the quick transition to online mode due to the spread of COVID-19 in our region. This presentation will discuss the hidden value we found in shifting our program online and how the LAP functions now in a hybrid space, supporting information literacy ...

Leveling Up, Nearly Falling, & Getting Back On The Ladder: Differentiating Library Research, Apa & Endnote Instruction For Even More Online Students While Not Hurting Yourself In The Process, Josette M. Kubicki

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Note to reviewers: This proposal is for a presentation that builds on what I meant to present at the 2021 conference. Due to a storm, a black-out occurred, and I couldn’t get back online in time to present most of it because my computer was so slow. The GICOIL moderator kindly offered me a break-out room at the end of the day, but only two people showed up, and an informal conversation was more suited. This proposal expands on that presentation and elaborates on what I did this year. I have a much faster computer now and will log ...


“I Feel Like I’M Part Of The Conversation”: Online Annotation Tools In The Information Literacy Classroom, Piper L. Cumbo Mar 2022

“I Feel Like I’M Part Of The Conversation”: Online Annotation Tools In The Information Literacy Classroom, Piper L. Cumbo

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

If instruction librarians have learned anything in the last two years, it’s that 1. we are immensely adaptable and 2. some “fully online” technologies are worth holding onto. For this instruction librarian, online annotation tools are one of those technologies. When the opportunity appeared for this student-centered instruction librarian to teach a semester long, three-credit hour course, in-person on research methods for honors undergraduates of varying levels and skill sets, the choice to add online annotations a course requirement was made. While web-based annotation tools have been prevalent in classrooms for the last five years, they had been used ...


Hyflex Primary Source Instruction For First-Year Writing Students, Crystal Goldman, Amanda Roth, Dominique Turnbow, Timothy Chu Mar 2022

Hyflex Primary Source Instruction For First-Year Writing Students, Crystal Goldman, Amanda Roth, Dominique Turnbow, Timothy Chu

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Teaching first-year university students to engage with and analyze primary sources can offer a number of significant challenges, including the need to protect fragile physical items in library collections and the prevalence of historical sources centering white hegemony. Add in the need for the information literacy instruction to be scalable for large groups, plus available synchronously and asynchronously, and designing a meaningful learning experience becomes exponentially more difficult.

Yet a fruitful partnership between a team of librarians and the faculty of an undergraduate writing program allowed for an innovative and hyflex approach to primary source instruction. Through the use of ...

The Role Of Motivation In Community Partner Perceptions Of Service-Learning, Jayda P. Felder Jan 2022

The Role Of Motivation In Community Partner Perceptions Of Service-Learning, Jayda P. Felder

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The current study sought to determine how community partners’ varying motivations for participating in collegiate service-learning programs relates to their perceptions of service-learning. Prior research has demonstrated a plethora of positive outcomes for students who partake in courses with service-learning requirements, but research investigating the outcomes for the organizations that host these students is less common, and research investigating the link between their motives and perceptions is nonexistent. Based on this gap in the literature, the quantitative, evidence-based Perceptions of Service-Learning Scale was developed for the current study to assess how community partners perceive their experiences with service-learning across four ...

This research is the first of its kind to examine the relationship between intervention delivery modality and post-evaluation questions and serves as a ...


Providing Access With Bookmobiles: A Chapter In The History Of Georgia Libraries, Rebecca J. Hunnicutt Jul 2021

Providing Access With Bookmobiles: A Chapter In The History Of Georgia Libraries, Rebecca J. Hunnicutt

Library Faculty Publications

Providing access to information is one mission of libraries and librarians. Programs and outreach are important aspects of accomplishing this mission. The implementation of the bookmobile program in the United States in the early 1900s provided access to those who couldn’t easily travel to a library. There are many people, then and now, who struggle to access libraries and the valuable resources libraries provide. Those people are the benefiters of the utilization of this innovative idea. Bookmobiles were valuable programs in the early 1900s and continue to be a useable and needed program today.


Escape The Show And Tell: Engaging Primary Source Literacy Through Immersive Game-Based Instruction, Autumn Johnson, Dawn Nikki Cannon-Rech Apr 2021

Escape The Show And Tell: Engaging Primary Source Literacy Through Immersive Game-Based Instruction, Autumn Johnson, Dawn Nikki Cannon-Rech

Library Faculty Publications

Instruction using Special Collections and archival resources tends to play a minor role in library instruction programs. Special Collections is more often employed in exhibitions or public forums for lectures, presentations, and academic discussions. Hands-on opportunities to teach with Special Collections, if available, are typically limited to oneshot lecture sessions with a handful of resources specific to a singular course subject or assignment topic. While these “Show and Tell” sessions can be a great way to expose undergraduate students to archival primary sources, they often are used exclusively in history or humanities courses. A more engaging, tactile approach is certainly ...
