Musings from the Library

This is my brand new blog that I will use to contribute to the course. Eventually it will morph into a blog I will use for professional development in general and I will use it as a way to explore a wide range of ideas about academic librarianship. [HTML] [XML] Last Updated:

Topic 4: Visual Literacy . . . I’m not an expert, but I have questions . . .
, Musings from the Library, January 10, 2015
Boy has it been a while.  A young family and full-time work certainly has its ups and downs.  I have been thinking a long time about the visual literacy section of my Metaliteracy MOOC.  I will be the first to admit that I have a long way to go on being visually literate myself, at […] Tue, 22 Apr 2014 19:40:52 +0000 [Comment]

Topic 3.1: Confession: OERs scare me
, Musings from the Library, January 10, 2015
Ok.  I have been delaying this post because (1) I have been really busy with work and family and (2) I’m not quite sure what to say about OERs beyond the fact that they terrify me.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the concept, I agree we should be sharing and using ideas and materials.  But using […] Mon, 28 Oct 2013 18:10:14 +0000 [Comment]

MotherCoders.org

So there I was reading a post by Howard Rheingold about Twitter and decided to check out his Twitter feed (@hrheingold) and found a retweet about Mother Coders.  The organization is working to support mothers in their efforts to learn programming skills as a way into technical careers.  Naturally, they are far more eloquent in […] Fri, 09 May 2014 14:14:56 +0000 [Comment]

Topic 3.2 Is there truly a global perspective on metaliteracy? Or is metaliteracy global?
alibrarian4u, Musings from the Library, December 31, 2013
December has just about come and gone.  The semester is long gone.  And 2013 is about to disappear.  And yet I am still slogging thorough the metaliteracy material.  Whew!  I do like the MOOC format but my pace is far slower that the projected time for the folks who took the course for credit.  Many […] Tue, 31 Dec 2013 20:28:40 +0000 [Comment]

Holy Metaliteracy Batman!
, Musings from the Library, October 28, 2013
So there I was, checking my email and saw one from Twitter suggesting some people to follow, based upon my recent decision to follow Librarian Wardrobe (@LibWardrobe).  So I jumped out to Twitter to see who these folks are and decided to follow one of them John Jackson (@johnxlibris) and then found another that he follows, Chaucer […] Mon, 28 Oct 2013 15:00:51 +0000 [Comment]

Topic 2 Metacognition readings and talk . . . Ok who was eating chips while Char was talking?
alibrarian4u, Musings from the Library, October 9, 2013
I am finally almost caught up.  I still need to finish up some of the readings that Char recommended.  The Schraw and Moshman article is very dense, so it is taking a while for me to get through and then I can move on to the Flavell. In terms of how these readings have resonated […] Wed, 09 Oct 2013 15:42:01 +0000 [Comment]

Finally got through the topic 1 readings . . . still fascinated . . . still somewhat confused
alibrarian4u, Musings from the Library, September 30, 2013
Hi, I’m still behind but still very much motivated to continue.  I just finished the articles from topic 1 on transparency and reframing information literacy. I want to start by following up from my last post and attempt to answer the question about what a Metaliterate Learner is.  Basically, and forgive me as I am […] Mon, 30 Sep 2013 16:11:22 +0000 [Comment]

Dipping my toe into the Metaliteracy MOOC waters
, Musings from the Library, September 26, 2013
I have wanted to start a blog for a while.  Last week I joined the Metaliteracy MOOC and one of the suggestions is to link your blog to the course and write about the class.  So, here I am.  I will admit I’m a little late to the class but I am here nonetheless.  Part […] Wed, 25 Sep 2013 14:14:42 +0000 [Comment]
