Title:Teaching and Learning Online: Contextualizing the Distance Education Classroom as a `Safe Space' for Learning LIS Cultural Competency
Author(s):Morris, Vanessa Irvin
Subject(s):distance education
LIS professional development
cultural competency
Abstract:This paper conveys one LIS professor's experience with teaching eight students in a newly minted multicultural/diversity course for an ALA-accredited LIS program. The course was taught 100% online with a structure that aimed to incorporate as much reflection and interaction as possible due to the humanistic nature of the topic of the course. This open-forum approach to presenting the course was met with resistance by students in various ways. This research seeks to explore what it means to be an LIS educator while simultaneously learning ways in which challenging student discourse in an online context impacts learning and possibly, competent library service in the field.
