Wow – it’s been a while! It is a busy semester! So where have I left off? I finished my last lecture for the school year – it’s nice to have the first round out of the way – I look forward to (hopefully) improving on my weaknesses and building on my strengths for next year. I’m knee-deep in research guides at the moment, having just published one that I had been working on for several months, and now working on one for a professor and another I’m co-creating with a colleague that is a how-to guide on creating guides. Not to mention the list of subjects I’d like to create in the future!
Beyond that, I’m exploring other, increasingly popular tools, such as infographics, to see how I could use those in libraries and education. One of my interests is in finding ways to reach different kinds of learners, especially in a digital age, when attention spans are shorter and shorter and different stimuli are required to maximize retention. So I don’t have anything major to report at the moment – but definitely not having any trouble staying busy!
What I did want to mention – and something that will probably keep me away from my blog for most of the month – is that I am the designated blogger-of-the-month for Law School Ed Tech – a blog maintained by a group of us whose careers focus on educational technology in law schools. So if you’re interested in hearing from me this month (or you’re interested in educational technology and looking for a good resource), check it out! My first post – just an introduction – is already up.
