The Global Library Services Discussion Group welcomes all interested colleagues to join us in a discussion about serving our library users in a global setting. This will be an opportunity for audience members to discuss challenges and opportunities they are facing, and give their perspectives on what the most important developments are in this field. From online instruction and reference services strategies, to access and inclusion challenges in serving our users across many time zones, all topics are welcome for discussion. Members of the Global Library Services DG will be on hand to lend their own perspectives in this very important discussion.
What initially looked like several change agents colliding to create a year of turbulence, came to be a year of transformation for our teaching practice. Both external forces, such as ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, and internal forces, such as new strategic directions in eLearning, provided momentum as we redesigned our research guides. The presentation includes a case study of a year-long process of re-envisioning our guides to enhance content based on the Framework’s threshold concepts, incorporate responsive and accessible design, and reflect our pedagogical practices. Throughout the process we collaborated with key campus stakeholders: eLearning strategists, English Composition faculty, and the student population. In addition, our process coincided with the renovation of one of our classrooms into a collaborative teaching and learning environment. The presentation demonstrates how the new space converged with our instruction strategies.
This webinar aired on January 12, 2016 for members of the DataCure listserv. The webinar covered issues around sensitive data and how to establish a educational program to help researchers protect sensitive data while sharing results of their research.
The presenters were Brett Harnett, Director of the UC Center for Health Informatics ( http://www.med.uc.edu/chi) and Jonathan Petters Ph.D. Data Management Consultant at Johns Hopkins University ( http://dmp.data.jhu.edu/).
- Brett Harnett- the process of de-identifying data especially data resulting from medical records, issues around de-identifying especially unstructured data, working with an IRB and future issues concerning data containing PHI.
- Jonathan Petters - training for de-identifying human subjects data for sharing and developing a viable library service.
