Towards a Critically Reflective Practice: Applying an Equity and Inclusion Lens to Library Assessment

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

Who benefits from assessment? When we learn about our instruction or services, how are we accountable to the folks we are learning from? This session will feature three librarians who have engaged in assessment-from studies of accessibility to surveys on information behaviors-and detail their journey toward building a more inclusive and equitable assessment practice. Building primarily on the work of Ebony Magnus, Jackie Belanger, and Maggie Faber's work, "Towards a Critical Assessment Practice", the presenters will engage in the critical examination of their own work to build a reflective praxis of library assessment.Participants will be able to recognize the difference between assessment practices that are extractive or exploitative, and practices that are accountable, to students.

Participants will:
  • Be able to describe the various nuances in self-identifying information and explain their impact on assessment data.
  • Be able to locate additional resources for building an inclusive assessment practice.
