Event Using the Framework to Foster Conversations about Information Literacy Instruction - with Sara D. Miller and Amanda Nichols Hess

by Sarah I. Smith on Wed, Apr 20, 2016 at 09:40 am

 

A key strength of the ACRL Framework lies in the potential that its concepts provide for unearthing tacit assumptions in the process of developing expertise in discplinary information literacy. The paths from IL novice to expert within in a discipline tend to be murky and filled with assumptions about concepts, skills, and values unique to disciplinary cultures which "should have been learned” somewhere along the way. It is key for librarians in teaching positions to partner with disciplinary faculty in identifying and addressing critical issues of a discipline’s conventions and ways of constructing knowledge and to intentionally engage students with these questions. This presentation will discuss an ACRL Framework-based workshop designed for librarians and disciplinary faculty to come together to examine and discuss what information literacy looks like from a position of disciplinary expertise. Three goals of the workshop are to help facilitate conversations between librarians and disciplinary faculty, to understand specifically what is meant by information literacy within disciplines, and to identify areas of potential focus for IL instruction.


Sara D. Miller is the Librarian for Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning Initiatives at Michigan State University, supporting and facilitating the development of MSU teacher librarians and pursuing information literacy-related participation in campus initiatives. Sara works with first-year writing students in the information literacy classroom, and has previously served as MSU’s Head of Information Literacy, co-facilitated faculty learning communities focusing on writing and inquiry within disciplines, and worked with the University Committee on Liberal Learning in the development of MSU’s Undergraduate Learning Goals rubrics.  Sara has published and presented internationally with librarians and disciplinary faculty on the intersections of writing, rhetoric, and information literacy. Her current research focuses on critical pedagogy and practice.


Amanda Nichols Hess is the eLearning, Instructional Technology, and Education Librarian at Oakland University Libraries. In this role, she works with her colleagues to develop the Libraries' diverse and user-focused online learning offerings; she is also responsible for delivering professional learning offerings aimed at building librarians' capacity to integrate instructional design and technology into information literacy instruction. Amanda is the liaison librarian to OU's School of Education and Human Services, where she maintains an active teaching presence. Her research focuses on information literacy instruction, instructional design / technology, and the intersection of these practices into faculty development. She has shared her research on these ideas at ACRL and in journals including portal, College & Research Libraries, and the Journal of Academic Librarianship.

Event Cultivating Consistency in an Instruction Program without Much Authority - with Malia Willey

by Sarah I. Smith on Sun, Apr 17, 2016 at 09:42 am

Often with little managerial power, instruction coordinators are responsible for leading information literacy programs that encompass diverse disciplinary needs and individual teaching styles. We will examine challenges faced by library instructors and coordinators, and explore opportunities for pedagogical development and programmatic consistency. Models of shared development, such as communities of practice, encourage library instructors to grow together as teachers and learners.

Malia Willey has focused much of her scholarship on library instructor development. She is the Humanities Librarian and liaison to History and Philosophy & Religion at James Madison University. She was formerly the Instruction Coordinator at Loyola University New Orleans and a co-founder of the NOLA Information Literacy Collective. She has a MA in History from the University of Maine and a MLS from Indiana University.

Online Doc Checklist for reviewing the Standards for Proficiencies for Instruction Librarians and Coordinators

by Meghan Sitar on Mon, Jun 9, 2014 at 01:55 pm

Hi all,

I'm adding this here as a back-up for its inclusion elsewhere.  This is the checklist document created by the Standards Review Task Force this year to guide the process in the future.  Part of their charge asked them to do this.  It's been added on the IS website and in their Connect space, but since this committee has responsibilities for promoting the Standards and the review won't come up again for five years, I wanted to add it here, too, with the hope that this duplication might help people remember it exists.  No action needed on your part.
