Engineering Critical Pedagogy for Online Library Courses: A Blueprint for Librarians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The scholarship on critical pedagogy and critical information literacy provides examples of how academic librarians can incorporate these important practices into their teaching of one-shot and even credit courses, but little exists in the literature of how to effectively do so in the online environment. This session will explore one librarian's experiences incorporating critical pedagogy and critical information literacy into an online, 4-credit course in order to increase student engagement and student success. The presenter will detail some of the challenges of applying these pedagogical strategies in the online environment, as well as how she approached them, and participants will leave with strategies that can be employed to break down those barriers.

Participants will:
  • Define critical pedagogy/critical information literacy and access resources relevant to the topic.
  • Discuss the challenges of incorporating critical pedagogy into the online environment.
  • Brainstorm strategies to apply critical pedagogy to their own teaching environments.
