Blue Sky Presents Report

Wednesday, May 2, 2007 2:34 pm

On Wednesday April 25th the Blue Sky Committee presented the results of their work to a packed LIB204. We based our report on the four major areas identified by the Environmental Scan Committee. We presented ideas about Library Resources, Library as Place, Library Services and Library Technology. We also listed personnel issues that will need to be considered along with the final strategic plan. Along the way we used our new ‘clickers’ to get Library Staff feedback on each area we proposed. This data will be taken along with all of the other things that have been presented to Graylyn on Thursday, May 3rd for the Admin Council Retreat. Then Lynn will spend the next few weeks locked away working on the final report for Dr. Hatch which will be presented on Thursday May 24th. All of our documents are available to Library Staff on the Strategic Planning wiki. Thanks to all the library staff who contributed such great feedback on each area we considered. And thanks to the Blue Sky Committee: Wanda, Chris, Elise, Kevin, Lauren and Renate.

Another Successful LIB100 Semester

Wednesday, May 2, 2007 2:32 pm

Well, we are wrapping up another successful semester of LIB100 classes. We taught 10 classes this semester. That’s 137 students (24 Freshmen, 50 Sophomores 22 Juniors and 41 Seniors). A few classes branched out to use group projects for the final project, some of us even used Wikis! I taught EndNote Web to my classes and used our snazzy ‘clickers’ during many of my classes. The students seemed to really like them and whenever they came in and we were not using them, they always asked about them. I will be gathering up feedback from all instructors in a wrap-up meeting on Wednesday, May 31st at 1pm in room 476. Anyone else in the library is welcome to attend. This summer we are testing the waters with two LIB100 sections during Summer II (thanks Susan/Erik and Sharon/Vicki). If they don’t make it, we may not offer them again. I’ll be updating the template class this summer to include the options of group projects, wikis and clickers. A HUGE THANK YOU to all of the instructors who spend endless hours preparing for class and grading assignments and final projects. When you get comments like “I enjoyed every class and left every session with a wealth of new knowledge that I am really glad to have gained.” we know it was worth it! As always, anyone wanting to know more about the class, or who is interested in participating as an instructor, assistant or grader is welcome to come talk to me! Not everyone that works in our classes does the teaching – so if that is not your forte, but you still want to be involved, feel free to come discuss it.
