Thinking of creative ways to teach the ACRL Frames using Credo? We began our discussion of Credo and the ACRL Frames, here. In this piece, we’ll cover three additional frames that will assist you in diving deeper into the complexities of research for your students. The three frames we will explore through this post:
Librarians Ray Pun (Fresno State) and Kenya Flash (Yale University) recently joined us to discuss teaching social justice issues using Credo. Campuses have always provided a space to nurture political thought and activity, and librarians can tap into students’ growing interest while also teaching sound research strategies that will benefit all of their studies.
FYE Correspondent Raymond Pun recently interviewed Lilly Ramin, the First Year Experience (FYE), Sociology, and Instructional Technologies Librarian at the University of North Texas (UNT). Their conversation covered Lilly’s experiences and activities in fostering new connections with student affairs, admissions, administrators, and other colleagues in support of the FYE.
I often get emails from other academic librarians asking how they can increase their outreach efforts serving first year students. (Thank you for your emails!) One way to enhance your student services as an FYE librarian is to engage with your student affairs or student services division directly. Typically, this division supports all student-related matters from enrollment, to outreach, to health and wellness, to student conduct.
FYE Correspondent Raymond Pun recently interviewed Melissa Harden First Year Experience and Anna Michelle Martinez-Montavon, Instructional Design Librarian from the University of Notre Dame. Their conversation explores how the Hesburgh libraries support the FYE through embedded services and faculty professional development.
Instructional librarian Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe has been researching what misconceptions about information literacy students carry with them to college, and investigating what types of pedagogical responses best correct these. In a recent webinar she discussed the challenges of teaching information literacy to first year students, and shared her initial findings. Download the full recording here, and view her presentation slides here.
