Librarian as project consultant: Creative outreach with engineering students

Description

When asked to do a class visit for a 200 level Engineering Project Management class I proposed meetings with individual project groups instead. This was meant to mimic a project team meeting with an external expert or consultant.

Digital badges pilot project

Description

Thirty-seven students in a 4th year Sales Management course had the opportunity to earn two digital badges in a pilot project tied to information literacy mastery. One badge was for Critical Thinking, the other for Content Analysis. The pilot was to assess student interest and engagement in digital badging at the college level. Students completed several activities (e.g. online videos and tutorials) and assignments (e.g. annotated bibliography) before submitting a final research report. As it is critical that digital badges have an assessment component, students had to achieve 80% or higher in three individual assessments to be awarded the badges.

My year of digital minimalism: Resisting the attention economy

Description

Join Sybil Harrison in a facilitated discussion around her personal experience of seeking ways of limiting the intrusion of email and social media into her life. Inspired by writers Cal Newport (Digital Minimalism and Deep Work), and Jenny Odell (How to Do Nothing) she stepped back from social media in 2019, and started using a paper journal rather than Outlook for everything. And then the pandemic hit.
The session will provide space and time for participants to share their own stories about how to seek balance in a world where email and social media intrudes into all aspects of our lives.
