Webcast 2: Creating Learning Experiences at the Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy – Tuesday 4th April | 3 p.m. GMT | 9 a.m. CST
The ever-evolving information landscape poses a challenge to first-year students, graduate students, and faculty alike. To educate and inspire diverse communities of scholars, the presenters encourage attendees to create dynamic learning opportunities that address the needs of our learners at the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy. However, applying theory to practice can be difficult when creating learning experiences for a variety of audiences. This webcast provides practical ideas and skills to develop and assess pedagogical strategies that engage scholars at all levels. The presenters first describe how to distill core concepts from particular intersections into learning outcomes. With those outcomes as cornerstones, the presenters guide participants through the essential steps of creating meaningful learning experiences. Finally, they explain how to assess the impact of learning experiences in order to identify future goals. Examples of successful learning experiences at the intersections are shared throughout the presentation.
- Identify creative ways to develop and capitalize on informal and formal education opportunities for a variety of audiences in order to engage your community with the dynamic information environment.
- Recognize foundational elements of meaningful learning experiences in order to develop engaging educational programming at your institution.
