Tell me more about the GSLIS Skill Share

 

 

The idea behind the skill share is that there are so many great elective courses offered at Simmons, but we don’t have the time or money to take them all. This can serve as an introduction to topics in LIS you may not otherwise be exposed to, as well as a way to gather information for making future course selection decisions.

 

The idea of the skill share is that current and former GSLIS students will teach hour long workshops on elective courses to interested GSLIS students. The content of these workshops is up to the discretion of the student teachers, but may include: copies of the syllabus and recommended reading lists, lesson components, presentation of term projects, brief overview of entire course or specific sections, etc. We are also encouraging students to work together and collaboratively teach the workshops, if more than one student is interested in teaching a specific course.

 

Additionally we will also have two keynote speakers heading in from NYC. They are Jenna and Eric from Radical Reference who take care of the front and back end of the alternative, online (and sometimes in the streets) reference source. They will be speaking about the history, present use and future of Radical Reference, librarianship and the open-source software they use for conducting online reference assistance.

 

The skill share is free to all and open to all who are interested. The event will take place on Saturday September 16th from 10am to 2 pm here at Simmons College. We are anticipating three 45 minute student taught workshop slots from 10:00 am - 12:15pm followed by our keynote speakers at 12:30 and a complimentary lunch provided by Veggie Planet.
