  • 1. Object-Based Projectsto Teach Information Literacy Skills Abby Clobridge Associate Director, Research & Knowledge Services Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government David Del Testa Assistant Professor, Department of History Bucknell University Information Literacy Workshop Trinity University, May 19, 2009

2. Background and contextHowwe got here Object-based projects 3 sample projects:- The World War II Poster Project - Biography of an Object - Historical Mills Lessons learned 3. Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.Primarily an undergraduate institution. Approx. 3600 undergraduate students.300 FTE faculty.Bucknell University 4. Emphasis on teaching & learning. Small class sizes. Active learning, service learning, problem-based learning. 5. Accreditation Middle States Commission on Higher Education History Department: Lack of sufficientintroductory-level courses. Library: Need further evidence ofinformation literacy integrated into thecurriculum. 6. Faculty-Library Instruction Model

  • Since the 1960s at least, librarians and faculty have worked closely together on faculty-generated courses.
    • Ample literature on the topic:
      • Bielema, C., D. Crocker, J. Miller, J. Reynolds-Moehrle, and H Shaw. "Faculty and Librarian Collaborations: A Case Study and Proposal for Online Learning Environments."Research Strategies20, no. 4 (2003): 334-45.
      • Grassian, Esther. "Do They Really Do That?Librarians Teaching Outside the Classroom."Change36, no. 3 (2004): 22-27.
      • Raspa, Dick, and Dana Ward, eds.The Collaborative Imperative: Librarians and Faculty Working Together in the Information Universe . Chicago: Association of College and Research Libraries, 2000.

7. New Model

  • But this is new
    • Not mono-directional, in which instructional technologist or librarian provides supplementary support or only content management.
      • Idea to show that many aspects of and many partners in the professional historical experience - they have their professional prerogatives as well.

8. Revised Framework for Teaching Info Lit Skills

  • Active learning
  • Hands-on, experiential learning for students
  • Embedded more deeply into course
  • How professional historians DO research
    • Work with objects, tools, technologies historians use.
    • Work with librarians the way that historians do

9. Object-Based Projects

  • More tactile, kinesthetic learning.
  • Forces students to engage, interact with something other than information from a book.
  • Emphasis on original analysis, evaluation no way to crib papers.
  • More interestingfor students (and instructors!).

10. Historical Mills Biography of an Object World War II Poster Project 11. The World War II Poster Project As part of the extensive study into the history of World War II, students were challenged to apply professional library research, image editing, and content management skills in the context of their course. The students explored the history behind authentic World War II Propaganda Posters available from the Bucknell University Archives. Members of the History 100 course used their knowledge of the history of the period to analyze their images and produce a research paper about their findings. -- Cassie Mastrostefano and Joanna Wheeler HIST100 Fall 2008 Students 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. World War II Poster Project Timeline Project Planning 17. Doing the work of historians Orientationto library services and staff Gauge students info literacy Work with digital images; build a digital image collection Historical research Hands-on work with archival materials 18. In-class exercise during Session 2 using personal response systems to discuss basics of finding and evaluating sources.Selected topics included: Understanding citations, finding materials in a university library, inter-library loan Address basic principles of finding and evaluating sources. Can be addressed via formal lectures, discussion sections, library visits, writing workshops, computer labs, or classroom management systems.Phase 2: Teaching Students to Find and Evaluate Sources During Session 2, instructors provide overview of project and intended outcome.

  • At beginning of class, provide a clear presentation of:
  • what students will learn in the course
  • how information literacy relates to those learning goals

Phase 1: PreparingStudents for an Information Literacy Experience Integration into HIST 100 Selected Details of Phase MSCHE Phase 19. Students will create digital surrogates of their posters, manipulate digital images, and use specialized information technology applications to create the digital library.The digital library, created over the course of several class sessions, requires students to create a new product. As a class, students will decide how to organize the content for their collection.P.I. 4.1: Applies new and prior information to the planning and creation of a particular product or performance.Organizes the content in a manner that supports the purpose and format of the product or performance. Manipulates digital text, images, and data, as needed, transferring them from their original locations and formats to a new context. Standard Four: The information literate student, individually or as a member of a group, uses information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose.Integration into HIST 100 Poster Project Performance Indicators (P.I.)

By the end of the semesterUnderstand the varieties of information sources available (UNDERSTAND) Access information efficiently and effectively (ACCESS) Evaluate information and its sources (EVALUATE)Understand the concept of intellectual property and the economic, legal, and social contexts of information, and use information ethically (USE ETHICALLY)Incorporate and synthesize information to create
