Putting Constructivist Learning Theory into Practice: Using Educational Technology to Engage Students and Assess Their Learning

In this session, the presenters will provide an overview of one learning theory, constructivism, and share how librarians can put this theory into practice in one-shot instruction sessions using educational technology tools that provide opportunities for student engagement and assessment of student learning.

What Do Your Library Chats Say? How to Analyze Webchat Transcripts for Sentiment and Topic Extraction

Reference can be complicated when you are not meeting face-to-face. Are we actually answering our patron’s questions? Are all the librarians answering the questions the same way? Are the interactions positive or negative experiences? And how much effort is actually put into chat interactions? Rockhurst University’s Greenlease Library looked at two years of library chats and used simple natural language processing techniques to explore user behavior and learn about the most popular topics. This presentation covers the process used, and what was learned from the data.

Academic Library Safety and Security – Administrators and Staff Need to Be on the Lookout
The world is not as safe as it used to be. Places that were considered safe (movie theaters, schools, churches, and libraries) have been violated; however, many of us do not give those incidents a second thought when we enter those facilities. Academic libraries are ripe for threats and attacks, be it from a gunman or a suspicious mold on a ceiling tile. This session will review how libraries are vulnerable to human, environmental, and facility threats and identify ways administrators and staff can possibly prevent the threats or be more prepared to handle them.

From the Inside Out: Creating an Emotionally Intelligent and Inclusive Culture

Learn how your library can use staff discussion groups to build emotional intelligence skills and increase awareness of diversity and inclusion issues. Emotional intelligence is a valuable set of skills in the workplace which can be built through carefully structured readings and discussions. It is also not easy to hold difficult conversations on important topics like diversity without first establishing trust and a culture of communication on a personal and vulnerable level. Discussion groups are a great way to grow emotional intelligence skills and hold conversations on difficult topics.

Information Literacy: A Cure for Infomania

The Infomania Journalism course at the University of Kansas is a good example of why an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With aid from the Libraries, Journalism faculty at the University of Kansas developed the course to prevent the debilitating impact of information overload. In this session, we will share how we co-designed inventive assignments and assessments to foster critical information and media literacy among future journalists, advertising agents, and strategic communicators.
