Connecting Pedagogies: Service Learning and Information Literacy - ACRL

Wednesday, November 16, 2016, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM, Library West Room 419

 

What is service learning and how can librarians engage with service learning and community engagement initiatives on their campus? This live, interactive webcast will outline how the pedagogy that underlies service learning also foregrounds the pedagogy of information literacy. Learn how to connect service learning and information literacy through the use of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This framework can serve as an important tool for: designing campus resources that can impact community welfare; creating environments of collaboration across the education continuum; and appraising the impact of community-based assignments. The presenters will share case studies of their own practices in order for attendees to see the theories in action.

Service learning and community engagement are one of ten high impact educational practices identified by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) that contribute to student retention and student engagement. AAC&U defines service learning as a course requirement where students have “direct experience with issues they are studying in the curriculum and with ongoing efforts to analyze and solve problems in the community. A key element in these programs is the opportunity students have to both apply what they are learning in real-world settings and reflect in a classroom setting on their service experiences.” (https://www.aacu.org/leap/hips)

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the importance of academic library participation in service learning.
  • Apply the Framework for Information Literacy in service learning courses.
  • Create successful service learning partnerships and assignments.
  • Assess service learning in the context of undergraduates’ information literacy development.

Beyond Systematic: The Librarian’s Role in Shaping Reviews - MLA

Wednesday, December 7, 2016, 2:00 – 3 PM, HSCL Room C2-41C

 

As review articles evolved from traditional narrative reviews to methods-based reviews, the librarian’s role likewise evolved from the traditional literature searcher to expert searcher and review methodology navigator. The “systematic review” buzzword now encompasses a variety of methodologies and review types, from the well-known systematic reviews and meta-analyses to rapid reviews, scoping reviews, meta-syntheses, and more. 

Navigating these less well-known or evolving methodologies and guiding researchers along the entire process of the review are essential components of shaping the review. Using cases from the field, librarians and review experts will describe some of the methodologies beyond the systematic review and highlight how they are best put to use. Since many tough systematic review questions are situation specific, experts will also tackle viewer-submitted stumpers and share tips for shaping and framing the research question and guiding researchers to the best review type for their questions. Overall, this webcast will help viewers to differentiate among methods, understand how to shape research questions, and better guide researchers to choose appropriate methods.
