Subject: "Just Another Day in the Newsroom" Colloquium, Monday Sept. 9, Law School, Slowinski Courtroom
Just a reminder that you're invited to attend our initial Fall CUA Library and Information Science colloquium, Sept. 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the Slowinski courtroom of the Columbus School of Law on the CUA campus.
Come and hear National Public Radio librarians Kee Malesky and Janel Kinlaw as they share with us the vital role played by NPR's librarians in researching, enhancing, producing, and archiving the network's news and cultural programming. Learn how they are breaking ground in the news industry as product developers and managers - launching new digital applications and upgrading the infrastructure running "under the hood." Janel and Kee will share a typical reference day at NPR, how they have integrated into the newsroom and adapted their services to the changing needs of the company, and how they have implemented new archival databases.
Also mark your calendar and plan to attend our October and November colloquia:
Tuesday, October 22 will feature Ann Caspari, Early Childhood Education Specialist, National Air and Space Museum, speaking on "Using Museum Resources for Inquiry."
Museums house rich resources for learning. They are available in different media and formats, and can be used in a variety of ways. Guided Inquiry Design provides a framework for educators to plan when to introduce different types of resources. Guided Inquiry is a constructivist, process approach to teaching in which complex themes or subjects are explored in depth over time. Teaching teams serve as guides or facilitators and learning content is linked to learning how to learn. In order to be successful, students must be able to access information from a wide variety of sources and also understand how they learn best. Experts and resources from the community, from museums, archives, libraries, and other informal learning environments enrich learning opportunities and help students make meaningful connections to the content. A teaching team planning an inquiry must consider many questions. What resources are available in the school, in the community and through the internet?
When is the best time to use object-based learning during a longer exploration? When is the best time for a museum visit or community visit? What kinds of sessions are better held in the classroom or the library? What kinds of sessions are better in the museum or community? How can universities, museums, and school districts collaborate to give students the best opportunities available from both formal and informal learning environments?
Then, on Tuesday, November 12 we continue with:
"Navigating the Storms of Change: How Emotional Intelligence Leadership Works," with Dr. Camila Alire, past president, American Library Association.
Dealing with change is so prevalent in our libraries today. And, dealing with that change is no easy task. Some staff welcome it; others fear it. Dr. Alire presents a leadership theory that has contributed to her success and that of her various management teams in navigating the storms of change. Real life events such as disaster recovery and major library reorganizations are the basis for her talk.
All colloquia begin at 6:00 p.m. and are held on the CUA campus. We look forward to seeing you there!
