In this face-to-face AMICAL Information Literacy Journal Club meeting, join us for a discussion about “Search Strategy Development in a Flipped Library Classroom: A Student-Focused Assessment”. Please read the article in advance so that we may have an in-depth discussion on the themes of rethinking teaching and learning, and information & digital literacies
The AMICAL Information Literacy Journal Club fosters collaborative professional development as we read and learn together. AMICAL librarians gather online each month to discuss an article based on an information literacy-related theme. More details about the journal club may be found on AMICAL Connect.
An in-person journal club meeting will be held during the AMICAL annual conference. For this special meeting, the article will be related to the conference theme. Please read the article in advance so that we may have an in-depth discussion on the themes of rethinking teaching and learning , and information & digital literacies .
After 3 online meetings of the journal club (February, March, and April), we believe you will enjoy a face-to-face session. Attendance will be easier than at online scheduled events, due to fewer work commitments or technical problems. This session will provide an opportunity to put faces to names or voices, encouraging further discussion and collaboration between AMICAL members. Additionally, we hope setting a commonly read article will spark conversation throughout the conference.
