The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A three-part webcast series
July 19, July 26, August 2 | 1:00 – 2:00pm CT

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a movement in higher education to study the teaching and learning that occurs on college campuses in order to improve student learning. Librarians are uniquely situated to impact the learning of students in a variety of ways including: at the reference desk, in one-shot sessions, in one-on-one consultations, through collaboration with faculty, in workshops, and through co-curricular activities. Each of these learning settings is an area worthy of study. By engaging in SoTL, librarians can discover how their teaching impacts student learning.

This webcast series is designed for any librarian who interacts with students and faculty, or who manages librarians who interact with students and faculty.

Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit: A virtual workshop
August 3 and August 4 | 12:00 – 4:00pm CT

Research data management has emerged as a need among academic researchers and liaisons are building skills in response. This online workshop will assist liaisons to identify their existing skills and mindsets that transfer to research data management services, and then create a learning plan for the RDM specific knowledge needed to serve their subject disciplines. Tools, hints, and tricks will be shared that facilitate partnerships on campus with disciplinary faculty and with other RDM service providers. Presenters will use interactive experiences to facilitate learning.

This online workshop is an introductory level experience intended for liaisons who are seeking to engage with research data management for the first time, or who have a very basic knowledge of research data management. Attendees are not expected to have previous experience with research data management.
