Online courses: SoTL; Student Engagement

Two courses running in February from Library Juice:
- Techniques for Student Engagement in Library Instruction, 3 February - 1 March 2020, taught by Kristin Ziska Strange, US $175. "How do we engage students in their own learning, especially in short, one-shot library instruction sessions? In this workshop we will examine a variety of student engagement techniques, focusing on Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning, problem solving, and metacognition. Over the course of four weeks we will examine up to 10 of these techniques and how they can be applied in traditional, blended, and online classes. We will especially uncover approaches that will work for one shot library sessions. In groups we will examine one or two student engagement techniques in detail, and explore how these might work in our own contexts. We will also develop a plan for applying a student engagement technique in our own practice. This will be a discussion intensive workshop in which it will be essential to follow a close schedule of information presentation, interaction, and assessment."

- An Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 3 February - 1 March 2020, taught by Lauren Hays, US $175."The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a movement in higher education to study teaching and learning in order to improve both. Typically, SoTL scholars draw from their own disciplinary expertise when conducting research. Research findings are then shared publicly with the teaching and learning community. In this course, participants will learn about the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and identify ways for involvement. Participants will also walk away with ideas for SoTL research."
