The SCIL Outreach Committee invites you to an Upcoming Online Session

When OA Meets IL: Bridging Open Access and Information Literacy to Enhance Student Learning

November 7th, 2014
11 AM to Noon, Pacific Time

Open Access (OA) is usually confined to discussions of “formal” academic scholarship, and rarely explored for its potential to enhance student learning. Char, Annie, and Carmen explore the pedagogical intersections between information literacy (IL) and OA. We will share strategies for incorporating OA as a vehicle for engaging students in research-based concepts and scholarly processes, and create a forum for discussing how to empower students to perceive themselves as “active” content creators and information users.

If you have questions or situations that you would like discussed, send them in advance to Carmen Mitchell, CSU San Marcos.

The presenters include:

Char Booth
Head of Instruction Services
Claremont Colleges Library

Annie Knight
Reference and Instruction Librarian
Santa Ana College

Carmen Mitchell
Institutional Repository Librarian
California State University San Marcos

This is a joint SCIL/SCORE (Scholarly Communications and Open Resources for Education) online meeting. Feel free to invite other librarians that you think might benefit.

The technical details of how to participate in this session will be sent later. For other questions regarding the event, contact Ken Litwak, Azusa Pacific University.
