What’s going on @ your campus vol 33pptx

  1. 1. What’s Going on @ Your Campus? { October 30 Vol. 33
  2. 2. For National Information Literacy Month, Amanda & Katie created & presented a program on the effects texting and techspeak has on our culture, communication, reading and writing skills. They presented this program at WPK & MDL
  3. 3.  "On Monday, 10/28, we held the “Human Library” event at the New York City campus, in collaboration with Student Development, as part of Information Literacy Month. Eight students and four staff members (including Bernadette, Matthew, and Bill) served as “books” that the audience could “check out” for brief discussions. Each volunteer wore a book-shaped greeting label that identified one aspect of their identity, such as “I am a vegetarian,” “I am tattooed,” or “I am a minority.” The event started with a discussion about the importance of seeing information in context, and the need to understand the person behind each source of information (even if that source is an interview, tweet, or academic article.) An iClicker activity asked students to identify unusual facts about celebrities, to spark discussion of how little we may know about people without research or direct interaction. After a brief introduction from Adam Rosen in the counseling department about the importance of celebrating each other’s differences, the audience members were given discussion questions and encouraged to find out more about the volunteers, with the goal of overcoming their misconceptions based on the label and learning more about the person’s identity. A total of approximately 25 students attended and participated."
