Connecting Science and Community: Engaging the ACRL Framework in a Physics Seminar Course

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

This session will outline the implementation of a pedagogically diverse information activity designed for a physics seminar course. Through the collaborative efforts of the physics department and their librarian, this six-week activity encouraged students to: question and evaluate authority and information in the field of physics and be responsible contributors to scholarly conversation. Groups synthesized their research to present their topics to non-physics students and community members. Final products consisted of podcasts, interactive posters, videos, etc. Attendees will be provided an online toolbox and time during the presentation to discuss how they can replicate similar activities at their home institutions.

Participants will:
  • Be provided a digital toolbox and effective pedagogy ideas to collaborate with academic departments on activity design.
  • Be informed of the successes and challenges of implementing a large-scale information literacy activity in a science seminar course.
