Kyle’s instruction conference roundup: Three birds with one stone

If you’ve ever considered attending three conferences in three different states in the same week, you’d better be prepared to be inundated with new ideas, new contacts, and challenges to your practice. Here, I’ll attempt to find the overarching themes from my experiences at LOEX in Pittsburgh, The Innovative Library Classroom conference (TILC) at Radford... more

Sarah at the Lilly International Conference on Evidence-Based Teaching & Learning

Last week, I drove up to Bethesda, Maryland to present at the Lilly International Conference on Evidence-Based Teaching & Learning. If you interested, you can view my presentation below. Although I have attended a regional Lilly Conference in the past, this was my first time attending the international conference in Bethesda. My proposal was accepted... more

Sarah @ NCLA-STEM Meeting

NCLA has formed a new STEM Librarianship in North Carolina (STEM-LINC) round table. Along with Erin Knight, NIEHS Library Manager, and Jennifer Seagraves from Central Carolina Community College, I was invited to speak representing academic libraries in a panel discussion on “Outreach & Relationship-Building with STEM” at the April 29th meeting held at UNCG.

Kyle at NC-LITe at NCSU

On June 12, I traveled as the lone emissary from ZSR to NC-LITe, the twice-annual mini-conference loosely focused on instructional technology in libraries. We had it here in ZSR back in December, if you recall. This time we gathered at the D.H. Hill Library at NC State, where they’ve recently undergone a few changes, the... more

Hu and the First-Year Experience Conference 2015 in Dallas

The annual FYE conference isn’t a typical conference for a librarian. Dean Sutton first made me aware of FYE a few years ago and this is my second conference. There were 2000 attendees from 17 countries. Many were from Offices of Orientation, Advising, and First-Year Experience, but more and more divisions of the university are... more

NC-LITe comes back to ZSR

Have you ever thrown together a regional mini-conference in the short window between final grades and the holiday break? ZSR just did, and let me tell you, it was awesome. NC-LITe, a semi-annual meeting of NC instructional-techy librarians, meets twice a year to talk about current happenings in instructional technology and libraries. This time we... more

Embedded Librarians and the LENS Program

This is the fifth year of the LENS (Learn, Experience, Navigate, and Solve) program at Wake Forest, and librarians from ZSR have been embedded in the program since the first year! Each year the program as grown, but this year the number of students increased from 35 to 51, requiring the students to split into... more

NC-LITe at High Point University

On Wednesday, Amanda, Hu, Joy, and I made the quick drive to High Point University for the winter meeting of NC-LITe, a small (but growing!) group of North Carolina librarians interested in learning and sharing about technology and library instruction. It’s a great opportunity for cross-pollination, and I’m starting to make some great professional relationships... more

ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force Webinar

this afternoon several ZSR library faculty gathered to listen to the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force Webinar. Below are my notes taken during the session and my own thoughts about it all at the end. The presenters were Craig Gibson and Trudi Jacobson, Co-Chairs of the Task Force. The forums... more

Kyle at ALA Annual in Chicago

I learned lots of things at ALA, but one thing I learned almost right away: bring numerous pairs of comfortable shoes. I had heard people say that, and my standard-issue brown slip-ons are *kind of* comfortable (and hey! they go with everything! I only have to pack one pair!), so I mostly ignored all of... more
