Discussion ALA Annual Pre-conference on Reflective Teachinc

by Nancy Fawley on Fri, May 8, 2015 at 01:49 pm

The Instruction Section is sponsoring a pre-conference workshop at ALA Annual, for the first time in many years. See below for details and visit the website for additional information.
 
Reflective teaching: Self-evaluation to assess and improve your teaching practice
 
Friday, June 26, 1-4 pm
 
Workshop leaders: Wendy Holliday and Anne-Marie Deitering

 

The Instruction Section is sponsoring a pre-conference workshop at ALA Annual, for the first time in many years. See below for details and visit the website for additional information.
 
Reflective teaching: Self-evaluation to assess and improve your teaching practice
 
Friday, June 26, 1-4 pm
 
Workshop leaders: Wendy Holliday and Anne-Marie Deitering

 

Reflection is a central component of effective teaching practice and successful student learning. But reflection can sometimes seem fuzzy, without purpose, and lack connection to larger program goals. In this three-hour workshop, participants will learn techniques and strategies for more structured and intentional reflection. Participants will learn how to identify, articulate, and diagnose teaching and learning “problems” that they encounter in the classroom, analyze their role as a teacher in that situation, and then apply techniques of reflective practice to address those learning problems and improve student learning. Participants will also explore collaborative reflective practices in order to build reflective practice into their instruction programs.

Access: Anyone who has the URL for the meeting can enter the room

Passcode Protection: No

 

Here are a few tips we’ve discovered that you can pass onto committee members:

1.            Adobe Connect has recently updated their software. When you log-in, you may notice a screen asking you to install the add-in. If you click “yes,” the update will install in about 20-30 seconds. You may need to complete the audio setup wizard after installing the add-in.

2.            Use Firefox, if possible -- Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.

3.            Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.

4.            Only use PDF or PPT files.

5.            You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).

6.            Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest -- so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate -- both need to be GREEN.

7.            Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.

8.            To test audio, click on ‘Meeting’ in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen. IMPORTANT: You must click all the way through the audio wizard in order to save your selections.

Kindly forgive the cross posting!

 

Do you find yourself wishing that someone would have been there to teach you all that you now know? Would you like to walk alongside a new librarian as they enter the profession?

Kindly forgive the cross posting!

 

Do you find yourself wishing that someone would have been there to teach you all that you now know? Would you like to walk alongside a new librarian as they enter the profession?

Here is your chance to participate in a great new project from the New Members Round Table of ALA (NMRT), to meet a new librarian ally, and to have someone to guide as they learn the ins and outs of librarianship. The NMRT Mentoring Committee's Career Mentoring Program focuses on long term mentoring. We will pair up "newbie librarians" with "seasoned vets" as part of a year-long mentoring program.

The NMRT Career Mentoring program will last from October 2014 to July 2015. Conference attendance is not required, but membership in ALA is required, and NMRT membership is encouraged.

For further information and to apply, please visit
http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/mentor/mentoringcommittee

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions after visiting the site.

Sincerely,

The New Member Round Table Mentoring Committee
