Online resources in information and geospatial literacy for students at McMaster | Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"Geospatial literacy has gained considerable importance in the last decade. Students require considerable support in locating and using resources, including digital maps and aerial photographs that provide information on both natural phenomenon and human activity on the planet. Geospatial literacy is important, not only in science disciplines, but also in history, classics, sociology, and a growing list of other fields.

Reflective Teaching for Librarians

Reflective Teaching for Librarians | Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"Most librarians are educators in one sense or another, even when the role is not explicit. The best teachers learn from others and learn by doing. This is a good rule for improving at virtually anything: Seeking inspiration and accepting criticism makes your work richer and more well rounded."

 

This article, adapted from Char Booth's book on Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning (2011), presents her ideas based on her own method expanded through mentorship, coteaching, online forums, and other collaboration channels: http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/features/03142012/reflective-teaching-librarians
