CALL: The Grounded Instruction Librarian: Participating in the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

From library listserve:

“Dear colleagues,

Are you a librarian engaged in the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL)?

Proposals are now being sought for an edited collection entitled The Grounded Instruction Librarian: Participating in The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. The volume, which is scheduled for publication by ACRL in 2018, will provide librarians with an introduction to key theories, research, and practices that underpin the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL), as well as case studies of how these theories are being used in library instruction. The book offers a mix of theoretical and practical views of the topic designed to deepen librarians’ understanding of SoTL and enable them to apply theories to their own instructional practices.

Authors are invited to submit a case study chapter proposal as an email attachment in Word or PDF to librariansotlbook@gmail.com on or before June 1, 2017. The full call for proposals is available here (or by visiting http://bit.ly/librarianSoTL).

Please email librariansotlbook@gmail.com with any questions. Thank you for your consideration!

Sincerely,

Melissa Mallon, Director of Peabody Education Library /Director of Liaison & Instruction Services at Vanderbilt University

Rhonda Huisman, Director of University Library Services at Marian University (IN)

Lauren Hays, Instructional and Research Librarian at MidAmerica Nazarene University

Cara Bradley, Liaison Services Coordinator at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada

Jackie Belanger, Assessment Librarian at the University of Washington Libraries

Online Round Table: Distance Learning!

The ACRL Distance Learning Section Discussion Group invites you to join us for the next DLS Round Table Discussion!

A large portion of distance librarianship depends on teaching, supporting, and collaborating with students asynchronously. Motivation, engagement, and participation in asynchronous courses was the focus of our first round table discussion. Now we would like to expand upon our strategies for assessing these interactions – both assessing student learning outcomes as well as keeping track of our interactions.

We encourage new and experienced librarians to take part in this discussion. These discussions are about learning and sharing. You will be a valuable addition whether you are just getting started or you have all the answers.

Register to participate in this interactive session now! Participation is limited to the first 90 registrants!!

Please send any questions to the DLS Discussion Group Co-Chairs, Kristin Heathcock (kheathcock@hccfl.edu) and Lindsey Wharton (lwharton@fsu.edu)
