The curriculum is designed by librarians with a focus on skills that are in demand in the profession, rather than the academic tradition of library education that tends to address other priorities.  These workshops earn Continuing Education Units, and are intended as professional development activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate as your own schedule allows.

ACRL HSIG Interactive Online Learning Webinar Series: Part 1, July 10, 24, and August 7, 2020

ACRL Health Sciences Interest Group invites you to attend our free webinar series on Interactive Online Learning. Each one-hour webinar will include three presentations on either learning strategies or tools to enhance your interactive online learning practices. These webinars are open to everyone regardless of membership.

The first session will happen on Friday, July 10th, 2020 at 9-10am PT/10-11am MT/11am-12pm CT/12-1pm ET.

Register for this session here: https://ala-events.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_AY1HJtA7QbGmeRKVQrgPow

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Two more webinars in this series will be offered at the same times (9-10am PT/10-11am MT/11am-12pm CT/12-1pm ET) on July 24th and August 7th. Reserve the dates, and we will release the registrations shortly!

We are pleased to welcome the following presentations on July 10th, 2020:

Transforming an interactive systematic review methods workshop series from face-to-face to the virtual environment: Tools and strategies for synchronous instruction

How do you take a series of interactive scaffolded Systematic Reviews workshops that were designed around group activities and active learning, and transform them for the virtual learning environment? We will discuss how our activities were redesigned and how we chose which tool or software to use to facilitate each activity. Existing features of video conferencing software and common tools/applications such as those of the Google suite can be leveraged to create either collaborative group-based or individual activities to use in the virtual environment.

Presenters

The presenters, Dr. Zahra Premji and Dr K. Alix Hayden are librarians at Libraries and Cultural Resources, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. They provide extensive consultation to faculty and students conducting systematic reviews. In addition, Dr. Premji co-taught a graduate course on systematic reviews, and Dr. Hayden was co-instructor for an undergraduate nursing course on systematic reviews. As well, the presenters provide a series of three workshops, 2 hours each, that focus on systematic reviews for graduate students. The presenters are also co-authors on numerous knowledge synthesis studies and have worked with University of Calgary researchers/students, as well as other organizations including the 5th & 6th International Consensus Statement on Sport Concussions.

Quick and Easy Accessibility Tips

Our session will begin by covering a few quick tips for digital accessibility. We will also cover tools included with PowerPoint that aid in making slides accessible. Lastly, we will touch on WCAG’s 2.2 guidelines, audio described video, and EEAAP (Equally Effective Alternate Access Plan).

Presenters

Megan De Armond, MSLIS, is Research and Instruction Librarian at Touro University Nevada. Faye Mazzia, MLIS, is the Electronic & Technical Services Librarian at Touro University Nevada. Both presenters are passionate about improving information access and experience.

Live Searching Beyond Show and Tell

Online, there’s often a temptation to present content, rather than asking participants to actively engage with the content. Creating opportunities for participants to actively engage with content, however, gives participants a deeper more personal experience, and a better understanding of content. In this session, the presenters model one method for running active search simulations in bibliographic databases. Together, participants will plan, execute, and evaluate a search strategy, as well as discuss the strategies that make such an exercise successful. This session is based on a larger interactive webinar that the presenters offer on reducing implicit bias in reference services.  

Presenters

Molly Higgins, MLIS, is currently a Reference and Digital Services Librarian and the Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service. She has previously worked in medical libraries, education, and social justice.

Rachel Keiko Stark, MS, AHIP, is the Health Sciences Librarian for Sacramento State University. She has previously worked as a Library Manager for Kaiser Permanente and as the Pharmacy and Health Sciences Librarian at University of the Pacific. Rachel has also worked as a Youth Services Librarian for a large public library system and as a Clinical Medical Librarian. She holds a MS from Drexel University and a BA from Willamette University. When not working, Rachel enjoys spending time with her two large dogs and playing both video and board games.
