How Badges Really Work in Higher Education -- Campus Technology

How Badges Really Work in Higher Education -- Campus Technology | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it
Digital badge initiatives at colleges and universities across the country are challenging assumptions about learning and assessment.
John Shank's insight:

Libraries might be able to use badges to motiviate students - not unlike graded assignments do in their courses, but with the added advantage that we will not be totally depended on the instructor giving students credit in their courses for the library work.

Wiley: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching

Wiley: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

Sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), this one-of-a-kind book demonstrates the best tools, resources, and techniques for discovering, selecting, and integrating interactive open educational resources (OERs) into the teaching and learning process. The author examines many of the best repositories and digital library websites for finding high quality materials, explaining in depth the best practices for effectively searching these repositories and the various methods for evaluating, selecting, and integrating the resources into the instructor’s curriculum and course assignments, as well as the institution’s learning management system.

John Shank's insight:

I just received the author's copy from JB - nice to finally hold it in my hands. A lot of hard work went in to it, but if it helps faculty and librarians find and integrate these high quality resources into their courses it will all be worth it. JB did a great job with the cover of the book and thanks to ACRL for co-sponsoring this first of its kind book.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, November 27, 3:03 PM

This model describes 4 levels of mastery using measurements of competence and consciousness.  As novices, we are in a state of “Unconscious Incompetence”, where we don’t recognize what we need to know.  As we gain knowledge and experience, we transition to “Conscious Incompetence,” where we are aware of what we do not know.  Developing further, the third stage is “Conscious Competence,” where most of us remain.  We have considerable ability and knowledge at our craft, yet it is not automatic; we must still think and act deliberately.  The fourth and final stage is mastery, or “Unconscious Competence”.

The Freshman Flip: An Exploration Live Today @ Library 2.014

The Freshman Flip: An Exploration Live Today @ Library 2.014 | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

Join us for an animated discussion based on our successful reworking of library instruction to reach all students in their first year @ Penn State Berks. With the use of online audience polling and audience interaction, we will journey together through our trek of “flipping” first year seminars (FYS). We started with creating tutorials, developing online activities, designing in-class active learning exercises, reaching out effectively to FYS faculty, and ending our voyage with faculty assessment. Our story of creation, implementation, and marketing which led to collaborative working relationships with faculty will inspire you to embark on your own excursion.

7 Things You Should Know About Design Thinking | EDUCAUSE.edu | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

"Design thinking is a structured approach for human-centered, creative problem solving that follows an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach where disparate perspectives are encouraged. The intent of design thinking is for participants to learn their way into a solution by understanding the needs of those who will ultimately use the solution being designed, brainstorming and prototyping ideas, and revising until a final product or model is established."

This is something every librarian should have exposure to.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
  1. raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;
  2. gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; 
  3. comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;
  4. thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; and
  5. communicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools

As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it
Librarians want to make their content searchable, but they’re wary of commercial software that may skew the results.
more...
Dick Vestdijk's curator insight, April 25, 8:01 AM

Un-biasing queries for information and subsequent results, is indeed the goal of any librarian in public education. Whatever EBSCO, Ex Libris et al state, searching relevant information is by and large un-automatable. Keyword is curation - an ongoing activity to keep curated academic content useful. ""unlike almost anything that libraries have done before," the rollout of one-stop search tools is "really intentionally trying to change the way people do research," says Michael Levine-Clark"

Sharrock's curator insight, April 29, 10:23 AM

from the article: "Ms. Morse belongs to a group, the Open Discovery Initiative, which unites various players to promote transparency and best practices for discovery tools. In the emerging conversations around this topic, one buzz phrase is "content neutrality." The idea resembles "net neutrality," the notion that network operators shouldn’t block or favor certain content. Proponents of content neutrality argue that discovery providers should have equal access to the information needed to surface content in the search tools’ results. That information includes things like the full text of journal articles and the "metadata" that describe the articles, such as the author, subject, journal title and publication date."

nickcarman's curator insight, May 1, 12:21 AM

Library customers prefer simplicity. They either don't the time or the inclination to master the ins and outs of various databases.  I can see the appeal of a simple search interface.
