In this session, presented at SUNY CIT 2014 at Cornell University, we described the successful collaboration between the Purchase College Library and the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center. An environment conducive to partnership and the exchange of ideas has fostered numerous projects that have enhanced student learning, deepened relationships with teaching faculty, and improved workflows. We summarized these projects, outlined our future goals, and provided direction for those wishing to develop similar partnerships and projects in the future.

  6. 6. Student Projects The TLTC’s Digital Media Developer created the student-centered interface and functionalities. Since Moodle is an open source LMS, the TLTC was able to build and design a highly customized workspace. Using Moodle, students can now: ★ provide project metadata ★ invite their readers to access their workspace ★ submit drafts for review ★ share documents and resources ★ communicate with readers (discussion forums, QuickMail, etc.) ★ easily access Library resources and services ★ submit final project as PDF ★ allow faculty to ‘sign off’ on project information and final project submissions in Moodle TLTC & Library staff created LibGuide to communicate process to students and faculty. http://purchase.libguides.com/studentprojects Sample Student Project workspace http://purchase.libguides.com/capstone
  7. 7. Online Course Redesign Cohorts ★ TLTC leads training series for converting F2F courses to hybrid/online courses ★ TLTC staff guide faculty in designing their courses and incorporating instructional technology tools in Moodle ★ Librarians attend sessions & determine faculty’s pedagogical and resource needs ★ Librarians lead portions relevant to library resources, information literacy, streaming, accessibility, copyright ★ Library resources and tips section in Moodle course for cohort participants ★ Librarians communicate with faculty via Moodle ★ Librarians and TLTC staff review courses and provide feedback (especially regarding streaming resources and accessibility)
  8. 8. T&L Days & F/S Workshops ★ Teaching & Learning Days offered at the start of each semester ○ Half-day series of hands-on workshops, presentations, and panels ○ Keynote speakers invigorate semester kick-off event ★ Faculty and TLTC/Library staff offer sessions on technology, pedagogy, and library services ★ TLTC/Library approaches professors using technology and instructional design in innovative ways to present or co-present Workshop SignUps: http://purchase.libguides.com/workshops Teaching & Learning Days: Fall 2012 | Jan. 2013 | Fall 2013 | Jan. 2014
  9. 9. Partnering to Assess within Moodle ★ Librarians developed a rubric to assess information literacy skills ★ TLTC created a repository of senior projects in Moodle ★ Repository provides an ideal selection of papers to assess ★ Using Moodle Rubrics allows for future integration of assessment into the student project process ★ In the future, readers can partner with librarians to immediately assess projects in Moodle. ★ Rubric in Moodle: http://tinyurl.com/n2uzqjc This rubric assesses information literacy skills demonstrated in senior projects. Numbers in parentheses after each criterion correspond to the SUNY Learning Objectives and the ACRL Information Literacy Standards respectively
  10. 10. Streaming Resources ★ Librarians vet course resource lists ★ Librarians worked with TLTC to create “best practice” procedures in making recommendations to online faculty (ex: when do WE buy rights as opposed to ask students to “rent” streaming films? At what point can we say we have done due diligence?) ★ TLTC implements and supports Kaltura streaming video server, integrated with Moodle ★ Librarians negotiate license agreements for streaming content with vendors to upload to Moodle as needed ★ Librarians mount videos in Kaltura according to license agreements and share embed codes ★ TLTC staff and librarians collaborate to explore alternative options and vendors (ex: Kanopy) ★ Developed LibGuide for faculty to explore streaming options Streaming Resources Guide: http://purchase.libguides.com/facultyservices
  11. 11. Embedding Tutorials & Crafting Modules ★ Librarians designed information literacy tutorials for freshman writing classes in Moodle ○ TLTC staff helped us learn Moodle quizzes, reporting functions, grade tracking ○ Collaborated to troubleshoot issues in Moodle (i.e. “hidden week” solution) ★ Created stand-alone Academic Integrity training module in Moodle with campus Plagiarism Taskforce (TLTC and Library staff on taskforce) ○ Uses VoiceThread, YouTube Videos, Interactive Learning Activities ○ Module is self-grading ○ Students earn a badge when they pass ○ Academic Integrity Module: http://tinyurl. com/SUNYPurchaseAcademicIntegrity ○ Implementation Guide for Faculty: http://goo. gl/sThPnD
  12. 12. Course Reserves ★ Library needed a better way for faculty to submit online requests to place books, CDs, DVDs on physical reserve. ★ TLTC & Digital Media Developer created and customized a block in Moodle for submitting physical Library Reserves. ○ TLTC worked with librarians to select necessary fields ○ Context-sensitive interface allows faculty to select books from the library catalog OR request we buy items we don’t yet own. ○ Students see items available on reserve embedded in the Moodle for each course ○ Faculty can reuse reserve items from previous semesters ○ Faculty track the status and progress of their requests ★ Contributes to Library’s shift towards faculty self-service model
  13. 13. Foster Collaboration on Your Campus ★ What projects at your institution/unit could lend themselves to collaboration? ★ What groups on your campus might you partner with? Who might be open to collaboration? Examples: Teaching & Learning Centers, IT Department, Instructional Designers, Assessment Office, Professional Development Office, Tutoring Center, First-Year Experience Program, etc. If you’d like to share & foster further dialog, tweet us @SUNYPurchaseLib #PartneringPanthers
