Meeting via Google Hangouts: https://hangouts.google.com/hangouts/_/unlv.edu/ebss-ife

Members present: Samantha Godbey (chair), Kim Frail, Diane Fulkerson, Sarah Gilchrist, Amy K. Gilgan, Paul Hottinger, Genevieve Innes, Dan Zuberbier 

Guests present: Lesley Farmer

Minutes

1. Introductions/Welcome

2. Set priorities for committee work this year

Idea from June 2016 meeting re: developing/gathering resources related to Framework was discussed

 Discussion of context:

  • Samantha shared re: her meeting with other chairs of EBSS Education committees, no concern in that meeting about overlap with our committee, enthusiasm from other chairs about our idea to develop and/or identify resources related to using the Framework for educators.
  • In June, the committee discussed the possibility of creating a libguide. EBSS is launching an EBSS-specific libguide as an option. 
  • Diane is also on the ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee and will be helping to test the new ACRL Framework sandbox in the coming weeks. She is happy to share screenshots of the sandbox with our committee to give us a sense of what it will be like. It is a work in progress, hopefully will be up and ready to use by December or January.
  • Samantha shared that the ACRL Standards will be removed from the ACRL website on July 1, 2017. Diane stated that it is her understanding that disciplinary standards such as the Teacher Education standards will remain in place longer in order to allow those sections to transition to the Framework. ANSS and WGSS are working on this this year. Diane and Lesley confirmed that there is no intention from the ACRL Board to bring the Standards back.
  • Samantha will contact Standards and Frameworks committee chair re: our timeline

 Discussion of exactly what to do:

  • Concerns were raised about the static nature of libguides.
  • Kim suggested possible group project of conducting case studies at our institutions; Jenny suggested developing lesson plans
  • Dan voiced concerns about what we do not being used – necessity for marketing
  • Discussion of making connections between education or accreditation standards and the Framework, which standards would we focus on? CAEP, Standards for the 21st Century Learner, P21 Framework, Common Core, Future Ready Framework, ISTE Standards
  • It was decided that we do not want to write an education version of the Framework, instead use Framework as is.
  • Decided to work on lesson plans, which we will post to an existing platform.
  • In spring, committee will decide on a platform for sharing lesson plans (MERLOT, CORA, Framework sandbox) and post them there, market them via EBSS listserv and newsletter

 3. Next Steps

  • Samantha will create shared Google doc for brainstorming ideas for lesson plans using a couple of different organizations (by frame, by student level, by content area)
  • Committee will use that brainstorming to help decide a plan for lesson plan development (e.g., what primary organization, how many)
  • Group will write down lesson plan ideas on the shared doc over the next month.
  • Gather lesson plan templates: Diane will share hers, Samantha will share hers, Samantha will find MERLOT template and share with group

Approval of notes from prior meeting: Minutes from the January 2016 Meeting were approved virtually over email.

 

1. Introductions/Welcome

2.  Update on current projects (esp. the survey on and request for ideas related to the Framework)

Samantha reminded the committee that our project to revise the ACRL IL Standards for Educators has been delayed to allow everybody time to reflect on what the addition of the ACRL IL Framework means to this process. Our committee used the time to survey EBSS list to gather information about how the standards are used. We had a very low response rate.

We shared the results of our survey to the EBSS listserv on March 3, and requested ideas related to Research as Inquiry. Samantha received only one response to this request.

3.  Suggestions for projects for next year's committee

Discussion of working on 1) a compilation of resources related to working with the Standards, the Framework, and threshold concepts, and/or 2) a revision of the IL Standards for Teacher Education. General support of the idea to develop a resource list. General agreement that a revision of the Standards would be more helpful. Discussed possibility of revising the Teacher Education Standards, too, if there is interest and time available. Some questions about how well the Standards are used. Perhaps more promotion is needed? Data to be collected on usage?

 

Diane mentioned the upcoming WGSS discussion at ALA Annual about developing discipline-specific standards:

2015-2016 Summary

Samantha Godbey, Committee Chair

 

Committee’s goals for year:

- Gather information on EBSS usage of Standards and Framework in preparation for possible revision of IL Standards for Teacher Education

Projects/tasks completed:

- Distributed survey via EBSS listserv re: usage of Standards and Framework

- Shared survey results with membership via EBSS listserv

- *Both contribute to ACRL Plan of Excellence Goals re: Student Learning (Advance innovative practices and environments that transform student learning) and New Roles and Changing Landscapes (Academic and research library workforce effectively navigates change in higher education environments), as we try to navigate the recent changes with the new Framework and seek to understand its impacts on our instruction.

Projects/tasks still pending

- None, but committee discussed options for next year. Members feel that curating a list of resources related to the Framework for librarians working with educators would be most useful for next year, more so than revising the IL Standards for Teacher Education.

Concerns/issues for the Executive Committee to consider

- One concern brought up in our meeting was how to effectively market the Standards themselves as well as any new resources we develop. Obviously, there is the listserv, but maybe this is something to discuss as a section – how can we best communicate about resources with one another?

Members not present: Amy Gilgan

Guests present: Dan Zuberbier

 

Approval of notes from prior meeting: Minutes from the September 2015 Meeting were approved virtually over email.

1. Introductions and Welcome

2. Review and discuss results from fall 2015 committee survey on the IL Teacher Education Standards and Framework.

-          Survey results did not have an amazing turnout.

-          Committee reviewed the survey results.

-          Only 29 entries were submitted for the survey. However, many stated they did not use the framework in their instruction. Most used frame – Research as Inquiry

3. Next steps for Spring 2016, including how to disseminate survey results to EBSS membership:

-          Committee will summarize results and share with the EBSS community. Committee feels that even though the turnout was low, people may want to know what framework is being used by other librarians.

-          We can use the survey again in the future to see if there is progress or change after time, observing trends. Committee agreed to send out the survey again in the Spring. We will use the same survey, distributed broadly to capture more participation across multiple disciplines.

-          For now, committee can use survey results to indicate which aspects of the Framework the EBSS community is most interested in and most relevant. Would like to collect ideas and build discussion around the framework/instruction. Was suggested to setup a Google Doc allow EBSS community to participate and contribute information. Will send out a summary of results and a request for ideas related to a particular frame.

-          Possibility of sharing results eventually in an EBSS Current Topics Discussion or ACRL poster?

 

Tasks to be done by Feb. 12:

  1. Summarize survey results. Create a simplified version to share with EBSS (Marci, Sarah, Amy C)
  2. Draft question to send out with results (to EBSS listserv only) - asking for contributions/ideas on using a particular frame (Research as Inquiry? Searching is Strategic?) (Ericka, Paul, Samantha)

Samantha Godbey is doing research about Framework now and has been looking at this at her institution.

iv. Review of the IL Teacher Education Standards for potential revisions will begin in the 2016/2017 academic year.

v. Creation of a “crosswalk” between standards and framework before lesson plan creation and as an evaluation tool; building on “ACRL Alignments Chart”  that has already been created.

vi. Survey of EBSS and ACRL members will be conducted in the Fall of 2015 to gather evidence of Framework use and synthesis of Standards and Framework in lesson plans. Survey goes out in early November; IEC collaboration on questions finished by October 9th; IRB approval by end of October (Amy Catalano will pursue).

  1. Which concepts are most useful and relevant to our future educators?
  2. Are there differences in how we teach undergrads versus graduate students?
  3. What are students actually getting from our sessions?
  4. What activities or assessment was done to measure learning of Framework?
  5. Which standards are being used by librarians? (add list of Framework concepts in grid/checklist format).

vii. Google Doc will be created later today so that IEC members may add questions before our live work session.

viii. Article creation after survey requires IRB approval (Chair and Amy Catalano will look at IRB as PIs).

ix. Doodle Poll will be sent to members so that we may coordinate a live work session for the survey for the week of October 5.

Time and place convened: Moscone Convention Center 250-262 (S), San Francisco, 9:15 am

Convener: Ann Medaille

Approval of notes from prior meeting: Minutes from the Annual Meeting were approved virtually over email.

 

Agenda items:

1. Welcome and introductions

2. Approval of agenda

3. Implication of IL Framework on the Teacher Education Standards and work of the committee

The committee agreed that both the IL Standards and the Framework seem useful for different purposes: understanding and assessing performance (Standards) vs. how we think about and communicate about these issues (Framework). The committee members agreed that there was great potential in helping EBSS members to learn how to adjust learning outcomes for the lessons they teach to the threshold concepts outlined in the Framework.

The committee will solicit feedback from EBSS members about how they are using the Framework in their lesson plans. In late October/early November, the committee will send out an email message to the EBSS listserve with a link to a Google Docs form (or a form embedded in the email) to request feedback about how members are using the threshold concepts. An email will also be sent early in the fall semester to let people know that the request will be coming and to give them a chance to consider it. Members will be given about 3-4 weeks to submit their lesson descriptions, and a reminder email will be sent toward the end of that time period. Data from the survey form will be collected, synthesized, and shared with EBSS members.

In the spring EBSS will use the information received from the form to develop 2-3 sample lesson plans that are connected to the threshold concepts outlined in the Framework.

4. Upcoming review of IL Teacher Education Standards in 2016

Ann reported that the ACRL Information Literacy Standards Committee is still working out a process for the processes, procedures, and expectations for review of disciplinary standards in light of the new Framework. The committee agreed that activities planned for the coming year would help to prepare for the standards review in the coming year.

5. Progress on the Model Library Guide

It was decided to put the Model Library Guide on hold for the time being and to proceed with collecting feedback on the use of the Framework and the construction of Framework-related lessons plans for education librarians. The Model Library Guide project can be resumed in the future if so decided.

Time adjourned: 11:00 am
