Exploring your options with hybrid and online research skills instruction


Published on

Your options for hybrid and online approaches to research skills and information literacy instruction just keep growing! In addition to the suite of online modules created by UCLA Library staff, there are numerous videos, tutorials, and other resources available to you as well.

In this interactive session, we will discuss how pre- and post-assignments can help you free up time in your library instruction sessions for more active learning and critical inquiry. We will also take a look at ways in which integration of research skills support into LibGuides and CCLE can help you extend access to information literacy skill development to more learners and researchers at UCLA. And then we’ll wrap things up with an open discussion of the future of hybrid and online approaches to research skills instruction and share ideas on future collaborations and next steps.

Exploring your options with hybrid and online research skills instruction

  1. 1. Exploring Your Options with Hybrid and Online Research Skills Instruction Doug Worsham Lead for Teaching & Learning UCLA Library @dmcwo
  2. 2. This is a research paper, so you must incorporate 3 appropriate sources (i.e., NOT Wikipedia!) into your argument. Does this writing prompt focus on the final product or the process? What might be hidden or not clear to students? What scaffolding or support would be needed to help students succeed?
  3. 3. readings, and drafts , many assignments describe this: w/o adequately addressing these: • “include 3 scholarly sources in your paper” • “citations in APA format, double- spaced” • “make sure your writing is both ‘clear’ and ‘concise’ • ….. • how do scholars ask and answer questions in this discipline? • what constitutes evidence in this discipline? why? how is evidence presented/ formatted? • what are the characteristics of influential writing in this discipline? • What are the steps and stages of a research and writing process? How are research papers created?
  4. 4. “[W]hile a ‘one-shot’ model with minimal faculty engagement may indeed encourage IL concept retention, a course- integrated model with multiple diverse pedagogical interventions at the syllabus and classroom level consistently achieved greater performance gains.

  27. 27. ? What’s next? What would help you foster “multiple diverse pedagogical interventions”? How can we help? Would you like to see WI+RE’s work continue? Evolve? How would you like to contribute or get involved?
  28. 28. i Focus on instructor Development: Graduate TA training 495 classes!!!!! CUTF!!!!! Writing Programs Orientation Try out integration during-instruction (good for students and also works for instructor outreach) Incorporate reflective post-assignment (See Annette Marines work at UCSC) Outreach to high school students Use for filling in the gaps for transitioning students (freshmen, transfers, graduate students) Add link(s) to your Email signature! (could use to track stats) Follow WI+RE accounts on social media, likes, shares, RTs Help each other feel confident collaborating with instructors Explore cognitive learning theories (internally and w/ instructors) Frame scaffolding in terms of supporting the research life cycle Explore “decoding the disciplines” Host viewing parties + Q&A Movie festivals Solicit feedback - what would you like to see? Host a design party around a new ideas (e.g., primary/secondary + scholarly & popular) Create for new audiences, e.g., TAs/instructor Gather more feedback from instructors on how they use the modules Create a Web presence for TA/s and for instructors Ideas and Feedback Collected During the session
