Presentation Title: How A Split Screen Tutorial Project Influenced My Pursuit Of A Career In Academic Librarianship
Presenter(s): Hannah Martin, School of Information
Abstract: For this assignment in INFO 254 we were tasked with creating a side by side tutorial with our partner. This was my first experience creating a side by side tutorial and my first time using LibWizard to create a tutorial, though I had used it to create a LibGuide in a previous class. For this assignment my partner and I worked together to create a short, refresher tutorial on APA style for undergraduate college students. I enjoyed doing this project because it gave me an opportunity to work in LibWizard as well as learn a new skill. I enjoyed creating an informative, engaging and welcoming tutorial. I wanted to create something that would provide information but also be fun and also incorporate universal design to be accessible to many students. I ended up using this side by side tutorial as part of a mock flipped classroom for my final class project of a practice information session. Overall I enjoyed this class because it was another opportunity to learn a skill that is important to being an academic librarian. Learning these types of skills and enjoying these types of tasks is what is making me continue to be motivated to pursue a career in academic librarianship which is something I am very interested in and passionate about. From this class I have developed and gained skills in how to be a better teacher as well as the skills needed to teach information literacy.
