1. Threshold Concepts: a new paradigm for music information literacy


    from Music Library Association / Added

    Laurie Sampsel (University of Colorado, Boulder); Laura Snyder (Mount Allison University); Lesley Famer (California State University, Long Beach); Andrea Beckendorf (Luther College); Jon Sauceda (Rutgers University) ACRL's Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (2000), the foundation of 21st-century library instruction, is undergoing a radical revision. By December 2014 a new framework based on the pedagogical model of threshold concepts should replace the current standards. What will be the impact on music information literacy instruction? Members of MLA and ACRL will explore the framework and its rationale and consider the future of music information literacy, including a rethinking of MLA's Information Literacy Instructional Objectives for Undergraduate Music Students (2005).

    • The Politics of Information in Myanmar (Burma)

      Myanmar (Burma) has spent decades under authoritarian rule. It was isolated politically and economically from the rest of the world and home to one of the world’s longest civil wars. In the last few years, Myanmar has begun a transformation from authoritarian to democratic rule, from economic isolation and underdevelopment to an integrated market economy, and from war to peace. Come hear Myanmar expert and Jackson School of International Studies Professor Mary Callahan speak about her experiences living, researching, and working in Myanmar as this process has unfolded. She will also discuss a new USAID/Microsoft-supported information literacy project, housed in the Jackson School and initiated in collaboration with Burmese civil society groups and the Information School’s Technology & Social Change Group (more details on the project coming soon!).

      • 2014 Big6 and Super3 Overview, 5-5-14 2.03 PM

        Presented by Mike Eisenberg, Ph. D. Dean Emeritus & professor UW and co-founder of Big6 skills, this webinar explains Big6 and Super3 basics and introduces the Big6 by the Month series. (60 min. video) Big6 is an information and communication technology (ICT) skills process. Students who learn the six skills have a reliable method to solve problems or answer questions. The youngest students begin with a three stage process called the Super3 from Pre-K to grade 1. By second grade, students transition to the Big6 process to dig deeper into each stage. The Big6 by the Month is a comprehensive ICT curriculum that reaches all students, all grade levels and all subject areas. Big6 becomes part of your existing lessons -- it does not add on extra work. Big6 tagging allows you to identify which skills you already cover, then identify if there are any gaps. The monthly Big6 approach allows you to teach one skill each month. Students learn each skill over the course of the school year, then tie things together with a measure-able culminating activity at the end of the academic calendar.
