Reflective teaching: Self-evaluation to assess and improve your teaching practice

The Instruction Section is sponsoring a pre-conference workshop at ALA Annual, for the first time in many years. Please see below for details and visit the website for additional information.

Reflective teaching: Self-evaluation to assess and improve your teaching practice

Friday, June 26, 1-4 pm

Workshop leaders: Wendy Holliday and Anne-Marie Deitering

Reflection is a central component of effective teaching practice and successful student learning. But reflection can sometimes seem fuzzy, without purpose, and lack connection to larger program goals. In this three-hour workshop, participants will learn techniques and strategies for more structured and intentional reflection. Participants will learn how to identify, articulate, and diagnose teaching and learning “problems” that they encounter in the classroom, analyze their role as a teacher in that situation, and then apply techniques of reflective practice to address those learning problems and improve student learning. Participants will also explore collaborative reflective practices in order to build reflective practice into their instruction programs.

The Society of Georgia Archivists, the Atlanta chapter of ARMA International,
and the Georgia Library Association present a train-the-trainer session on
Personal Digital Archiving. Designed for information professionals from all
backgrounds and levels of experience, this session will empower participants to
see themselves as archivists of their own digital records and will cover topics
ranging from best practices for creating digital records and rights issues in
the digital landscape to strategies for storing digital records and emerging
developments regarding the digital afterlife. After completing the workshop,
attendees will be encouraged to teach the workshop to their users–the public,
co-workers, students, etc.–in their own diverse institutional contexts. The
end goal of the workshop will thus be to advocate for informational
professionals as a source of expertise for assisting individuals (the public,
family members, students, corporate employees, etc.) with their personal
digital archiving needs.

Oscar Gittemeier currently works as a Youth Services Librarian with the
Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System (AFPLS) at the East Atlanta Branch. He has
a background in Sociology and Women’s Studies and completed his MLIS with
Florida State University in August 2012. Oscar has served on several GLA
committees, including AEL, NMRT, and PACE, but making the Libraries Are Such a
Drag fundraising calendar for the Scholarship Committee was the most fun! In
his free time Oscar enjoys sipping Bulleit Bourbon with a good book on his back
deck and connecting with radical librarians who are reimagining the profession.

Wendy Hagenmaier is the Digital Collections Archivist at the Georgia Tech
Archives. She received her M.S.I.S. with a focus on digital archives and
preservation from the University of Texas at Austin School of Information. Her
areas of scholarly and professional interest include personal digital archiving
as an outreach and advocacy tool for increasing awareness about the importance
of digital archiving in society, the technological and intellectual property
challenges of preserving and providing access to born-digital data and
proprietary formats, and the puzzles of data stewardship and control in an
increasingly terms-of-service-bound world.

Michelle Kirk (CRM, IGP, CIP) is currently a Program Manager and eRecords and
Information Governance subject matter expert for Iron Mountain Incorporated.
Michelle has spent her fifteen-plus year career in the Document Management, RIM
and Information Governance spaces, both in consulting and in-house roles. The
breadth of her experience is in Public Sector, Energy and Financial verticals,
with a particular focus on electronic records. Throughout her career, she has
been able to leverage her interest in electronic information organization,
preservation, and governance to help organizations manage their data more
defensibly. Michelle has a Bachelor?s degree from Temple University and holds
multiple industry credentials including the Certified Records Manager,
Certified Information Governance Professional, and Certified Information
Professional certifications. In her spare time, Michelle volunteers on her
local Atlanta ARMA board and on the ARMA International conference programming
task force. She also enjoys cooking, reading and is an avid sports fan.

available on the Carterette Series Webinars site for later viewing.
