We were thrilled to present on the topic Expanding Metaliteracy Across the Curriculum to Advance Lifelong Civic Engagement at Cedar Crest College last week! The Cedar Crest Curriculum Committee invited us to present a summer workshop to build on the great work they are doing to map information literacy/metaliteracy across the curriculum. We were very impressed with the work they are doing and enjoyed our time with the faculty, librarians, and administrators very much. This is the slide deck for the facilitated presentation and it includes the world premiere of our new book cover for the forthcoming Metaliteracy in Practice! Be sure to check it out!
Tom Mackey presented on the topic Promoting Access for All with Open and Online Learning at the Westchester Library Association Mid-Winter Conference at The Gateway Center at Westchester Community College. The theme of this year’s conference explored distance education and also featured Linda Braun, youth services Manager for Seattle Public Library, and keynote speaker Joe Nocera, Op-Ed columnist for the New York Times and commentator for NPR’s Weekend Edition. The one-day conference featured Linda Braun’s use of Google Hangouts, Tom Mackey’s discussion about open and online learning, MOOCs, OERs, and Metaliteracy and Joe Nocera’s keynote about digital privacy. This is the complete PowerPoint presentation by Tom Mackey:
Thanks to a recommendation from Sue Thomas we are exploring the social media site Scoop.it. We now have a curated space on the topic of Metaliteracy. This is a visually interesting and dynamic site that allows us to scoop postings related to metaliteracy, transliteracy, open learning, OERs, and MOOCs. Feel free to follow the scoop.it page on metaliteracy and offer suggestions.
