Information Literacy Reflection Conversation Circle - 2017 IPAL IL Interest Group
- Are you structured about your reflection? Do you collect them somewhere the rest of the IL team can see? Is there a template?
- When do you reflect, is it right away, the next day, the end of the semester, etc.?
- What do you do with your reflections to improve or adapt your instruction?
- What outside resources to you use?
- Do you have regular (or irregular) reflective time with colleagues (library or otherwise) that focuses on IL strategies, successes, and struggles? If so, what does that look like? If not, would you be interested in starting that and what steps might you take to begin?
- We take notes on reflection either the next day, edit pptx the next day, during conferences as you see how others do it and how you might change what you do
- For a 3 credit course - look over student work from last year and the notes you wrote
- What are the common themes of what students missed?
- Currently, once a year reflection to talk about how to address teaching in first year one shots / or the one specific class that everyone teaches
- Currently, once a week operational meetings - reflect if there is a request or need
- Future Steps - Once a month meetings to discuss a good session or class and a poor session or class for each librarian. Or one to two times a semester instead to be more efficient.
- For the poor session - brainstorm as a group a way to improve what went wrong
- Teaching information literacies introduction in different subject areas (ie: Data Literacy)
