Name of person submitting meeting notes: Samantha Godbey and Paul Hottinger

Members present: Samantha Godbey (chair), Amy Catalano, Sarah Burns Gilchrist, Paul Hottinger, Ericka Raber, Marci Zane

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)

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

Guests:

Time and place convened: Las Vegas Hotel - Pavilion 11

Convener: Ann Medaille

Time convened: 9:15 am

Approval of notes from prior meeting:

Minutes from the Midwinter Meeting were approved virtually over email.

Agenda items:

The group’s first discussion in the meeting centered on the recent completion of the Rubric for Assessing the Information Literacy Standards for Teacher Education and how we could publicize the rubric. Ideas were:

  1. Propose a roundtable discussion for ACRL. Mona will take the lead on submitting the proposal; Annie, Samantha, and Amrita will contribute. Cheryl will email our poster proposal to the group as background information for the roundtable submission. A tentative plan for the discussion is to present the rubric and then discuss examples of how to use it. We could also talk about our model guide (see below).
  2. Prepare a model LibGuide based on the rubric and IL Standards for Teacher Education. Annie recently co-authored an article about a study that analyzed the instructional content of guides. The committee could create a guide that includes examples of how to use the rubric. Annie will email her article to the group, create a guide template, and invite other members as collaborators on the guide. We will set up a shared document on Google Drive to brainstorm and outline our goals and best practices for the guide. The next step will be breaking the guide into sections and getting volunteers to complete the content for those sections. Everyone should read Annie’s article and contribute ideas about learning outcomes based on the standards to the shared document in preparation for an early December virtual meeting.
  3. Submit an announcement for the EBSS newsletter. Highlight the rubric as one of our committee’s activities.

The group then moved on to a discussion about future projects. We are interested in the impact of the new IL Framework on our standards. An idea we could pursue down the road is developing a clearinghouse for learning objects and assignments based on the teacher education standards. We could bridge our standards to concepts in the IL Framework.

We also talked about connecting our standards with other national standards. Ann shared copies of InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards, CAEP standards, and Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. We discussed whether these standards actually apply to what we’re doing, though we could create a resource that outlines standards education librarians need to be aware of. Another potential project is reviewing books about the Common Core. Ann will talk with other EBSS leadership to see if other committees are developing resources related to Common Core.

Our next meeting will be a virtual meeting in early December. Mona suggested using BigBlueButton for the meeting and she will check on how many participants it will support. We will meet again virtually in early spring to focus on the library guide.

Time adjourned: 10:45 am

Summary:

Action items:

  • Mona, Annie, Samantha & Amrita: Create and submit a roundtable proposal for ACRL.
  • Annie: Send out a link to eh article about the instructional content of guides.
  • All: Read or skim Annie’s article prior to the December meeting and think about possible topic areas for a LibGuide based on the rubric and standards.
  • Mona: Investigate feasibility of using BigBlueButton for virtual committee meetings.
  • Ann: Investigate whether other EBSS committees are developing resources related to the Common Core.

 4. Next project planning – Some possibilities:

  • Impact of the new IL framework on our committee work – The framework places more emphasis on concepts, assessments, and activities. Is there work we could do to assist EBSS members in implementing these ideas? What about the possibility of creating some IL activities that might be used for those working in teacher education? Or do we need to consider the possibility of revising the IL Standards for Teacher Education in light of the new framework?
  • Connecting the IL Standards for Teacher Education with the NCATE/CAEP Standards – NCATE and TEAC have merged into CAEP. We had talked about mapping these standards but the CAEP Standards seem more focused on programs rather than content. Our former NCATE liaison does not yet know whether she will be taking over as our CAEP liaison and cannot offer advice in this area as yet. Are there possibilities for us here? Or should we look at the InTASC Teaching Standards?
  • Common Core Standards – Could we identify IL skills listed in the English Language Arts Common Core Standards?
