1 Information Literacy Experiences at Texas A&M University at Galveston SAIL 2010 Presentation By Natalie Wiest

2 Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning Domains The Three Types of Learning There is more than one type of learning.learning A committee of colleges, led by Benjamin Bloom (1956) identified three domains of educational activities: Cognitive: mental skills (Knowledge) Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude) Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (Skills)

3 Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy

4 Bloom’s Taxonomy Writing Lab Information Lit Home Grad SchoolCareer Knowledge Comprehension Application Analysis Synthesis Evaluation Tier 1 – Transition from home into college Tier 2 – Practical application based on assigned projects and faculty needs Tier 3 – Transition from school to career or grad school (U3 and U4) U3 & U4 Apply (within Academic Major) U1 Familiarization (with resources available) Guided practice: Students will learn to identify needed information and process it. They will learn to use Information Technology effectively in locating information. They will be able to distinguish between primary sources, secondary sources, and hearsay evidence. They will be able to present information in a logical sequence demonstrating the basic strategies of scholarly writing. U1 & U2 Independent learning: Students will progress toward internalized critical thinking skills leading to lifelong learning. They will be able to adapt readily to new technologies, be sophisticated in evaluating information, using it to solve problems, and communicating complex concepts in clear, logically developed written and oral presentations. U3 & U4 U2 Awareness (of how to find and evaluate info)

5 Tier 3 – Transition from school to career or grad school (U3 and U4) Tier 2 – General Application - Theories, and Strategies Tier 1 – College Readiness U1 and general freshman year support ReadWriteSpeakResearchInst. Tech.

21 Learning Activities, Tier I Lesson 1 Information Literacy Learning Activities Tier One (Familiarization): Student’s Name: __________________________________________ Class: __ENG104__________________________________________________ Instructor’s Name: ___Dr. Slabaugh______________________________________ Date to be Submitted: ___9/14/09___________ Professional Librarian’s Initials:Pass Yes: ___ Pass No: ___ Professional Librarian’s Remarks:__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ These Learning Activities should be submitted to a Librarian of the Jack K. Williams Library, Texas A&M University at Galveston, on or before the above date. A Librarian is available at the Reference Assistance Desk during these times: Sun: 6-8 pm Mon: 2-4 pm6-8 pm Tue: 2-4 pm6-8 pm Wed: 2-4 pm6-8 pm Thu: 2-4 pm A Librarian is available for assistance/consultation from Mon-Wed: 8 am – 8 pm; Thu-Fri: 8 am – 5pm.

Introduction: This assignment is designed to be completed in conjunction with writing of a paper requiring research. As mentioned in the Information Literacy class presentation, one of the most important parts of finding relevant information is “developing your search strategy.” A more concise definition of “search strategy” is: A flexible and evolving plan for conducting information research. A search strategy includes a list of databases and indexes to search, a list of keywords and synonyms relevant to the topic, and knowledge of how to enter the search into the database or index.

22 Web Page Evaluation Learning Activity: Web Page Evaluation Checklist Go to Google (or your preferred search engine) and search your research topic. Use this Checklist to evaluate any search results that you use in your paper. Evaluate at least 3 of the results even if you don’t use them in your paper. Fill out a form for each site. Title and URL of page you are evaluating:What type of domain is it?com org/net edu gov/mil/us non-US________ other: _______Why was the content on this site appropriate for your topic?Who publishes the site and does it match the name of the site?Publisher or Domain Name entity:How credible is this organization to you? - Do they have a bias in their views - Are they an impartial site - Do they have a commercial interestWhat are this organization’s credentials on this subject?For evidence of bias search URL in alexa.com, click on “Site info for > Site Lookup…”Who owns the domain?Is the page rated well in a directory?www.lii.org or infomine.ucr.edu or about.comLook up the author or organization in Google. What do others say about this site or organization?Why was the page put on the Web? Inform Persuade Sell Satire or parody?Other:

23 Search Strategy A key word or phrase is the word or words that the question is about. They are the important words in the question. Example: Would reinstating a draft bolster the U.S.'s national security efforts or provide a less-motivated fighting force? (Key words or phrases are in bold.) Write down your research question or topic here: Go back and circle the keywords in your research question. List key words or phrases here.List synonyms here.

24 Lesson Plan Tier I Lesson 2 Agenda: Scholarly vs Popular Library eJournal resources Go to Library web site Explain concept of databases to locate articles Step 2 Select appropriate database Example: Go to Academic Search Complete Has many full text articles and covers our programs well Sample Topic: Airplane bird strike Pick words related to topic Search options Select Full Text Select Scholarly (Peer-reviewed) Broaden search by removing “airplane” Review results and explain the filter Redo search without scholarly (peer reviewed); and select “Newspaper” If you know the journal you want to locate by browsing or if you have a complete citation Show what a full journal citation looks like Select ”Marine Biology” Explain multiple sources and Abstract vs. Full Text Illustrate difference between html and pdf (linking in bibliography) Activity Split students into groups of 3; give each group a separate topic Assignment: find 3 articles, at least 2 from scholarly sources Write citations and bring back to class

37 IL Tier I Lesson 2 Assignment cont’d Using Academic Search Complete (available from the Library’s home page, locate four articles that will be useful for your paper. Give the full citation for each article and the pertinent information in the chart below:www.tamug.edu/library Complete CitationDocument type (newspaper, magazine, etc.)Type of Publication (Scholarly, Trade, Popular)Peer Reviewed? (Yes/No)123 You may use a brief citation format if you download the citations from Academic Search Complete, formatted to MLA Style, and attach the complete citation printout.

38 Sample Tier II Lesson Plan a Agenda: Acquaint with Library home page Search Catalog Search Academic Search Complete and print full citations 1) Introduction – writing a comparison for goods or services 2) Web Search – to find manufacturer’s pages or Google to find Example: 3) Using Library – paid resources. Go to the Library Home Page Explain the page Explain Library Services (left column) E.g., Kindles, interlibrary lending 4) Finding a book in the Library: Check the Clipper Cat catalog Contains information for: Print books Journals by title of journal E-books Other physical formats (DVDs) Demonstrate search: “Kayaking” Be sure to specify brief record, mail it to yourself Importance of full citations Show long record and subject headings

39 Example Tier II Lesson Plan b 5) Finding a journal article, e.g.: Academic Search Premier Sample Topic: kayak touring Pick words related to topic Limit function Select Full Text Select Scholarly (Peer-reviewed) Publication types: All Show what a full journal citation looks like Note where ASP indicates “Refereed”, “Trade”, “Popular” Explain Homework Assignment

40 Challenges of current Tier II Can not assume students have had any Tier I exposure First iteration has been a “one shot” deal Good/bad part of “one shot” – take an entire class period

41 Database Usage and IL Sessions

42 Search Numbers X Info Lit Presentations

43 What seems to have worked well Two sessions for Tier I First session in the Library with book- locating exercise “Grading” by the librarian (all are pass/fail) Librarian has learned a lot more about Academic Search Complete

44 What has not worked so well Web evaluation presentation or exercise Classes scheduled in distant buildings lose too much time getting there for half class period Classes without computers for all if in a distant building Need better exercise for “popular”, “trade”, “scholarly” differentiation

45 Faculty evaluation yet to come Evaluation and revision to be an ongoing project
