Asynchronous Active-Learning: Can it be done?
As online instruction is increasing, so is the request for information literacy to the online learner. As many online classes meet asynchronously, arranging a time for IL instruction is challenging. Many times, these sessions are poorly attended and those who were not able to make it are given the recorded version of the session.
Although many colleges and universities have created online tutorials and modules, these are often geared for the basics of library instruction, or orientations. How can we meet the needs of the master’s and doctoral students needing advanced research skills? What can be arranged so they are not learning from a recorded session? Live, in-person instruction is full of active learning techniques to engage and instruct. Can these techniques be translated into asynchronous learning?
This session will address these challenges and talk about possible solutions implemented at California State University Fullerton’s Education program through varying educational technologies.

Missing Information Has Value: Climate Change and the EPA website
What happens when government web pages are hidden, moved, or deleted? In the age of “alternative facts” and the “politicization of science” one librarian was inspired by real world events to create an opportunity to dialogue about power dynamics and bias in a traditional one-shot instruction session. Environmental Science students critically analyzed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website and its treatment of climate change during the Trump, Obama, and Bush presidencies. The library “warm-up” activity was designed to raise awareness of data fragility and the long-term accessibility of government websites. As future science professionals, it’s important to think about how this impacts scientists and their work. Students were introduced to several tools including: The Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, End of Term Archive, and Data Refuge.

Possibilitarian Approaches to Information Literacy in the LMS
Many academic librarians teach online and much of this instruction happens in a learning management system (LMS). We constrain ourselves to the structure of these systems and attempt to meet students where they are with content that addresses information literacy learning goals. But how exactly are we doing that? What does online pedagogy look like in today’s LMS? Most importantly, how can elements of active learning and critical pedagogy be infused into online classrooms?

This pecha kucha presentation will shine a spotlight on these questions in order to inspire conversations about possibilities regarding how librarians teach and *could be* teaching online. Attendees will see examples of what online information literacy instruction can look like in an LMS (Canvas most specifically), hear ideas for moving instruction beyond the LMS, and consider how to begin more effectively engaging students in learning that happens in front of a screen.

The presentation’s target audience will be librarians who teach fully online courses as well as those who engage with the LMS in more minimal ways.
