Title:Pedagogical practices for information policy instruction
Author(s):Zimmerman, Margaret
Subject(s):Pedagogical practice
Information policy
Abstract:The Information Policy SIG will solicit panelists to come together and discuss pedagogical practices related to information policy. We understand that a strong grasp of information policy is crucial to shaping the next generation of LIS leaders, and this panel will be geared toward the design and application of meaningful curricula toward that end. Specifically, our call for papers will request panelists prepared to discuss their experiences as professors or other teaching faculty in which they describe a singular learning experience, assessment, or object that they used in their class. They will then be called upon to further explain the substantive value of this practice or element to their pedagogical mission. In addition, it is the hope of the SIG members that attention will be paid to the current change in climate brought on by the pandemic, and the required shifts in educational strategies that must occur in response. Regarding the element or strategy each panelist discusses, the panel presentations will clearly denote what the element is, why it is important or how it is motivating, or how it relates to assessment. Finally, the panelists will offer their own observations of the success of the pedagogical practice or instrument that they are describing. Likewise, the session attendees will have the opportunity to both ask questions and offer their own critiques of the practice or element being described. The ultimate goal of this dynamic, interactive panel is for the attendees to be able to walk away with fresh ideas for implementing new, vetted information policy pedagogical elements in their courses. Similarly, this is an outstanding opportunity for networking and partnerships for faculty that teaches in this area. If panelists agree, a repository could be created in which the products of the panel are stored for further use and dissemination.
