F60. What are Open Education Resources? Teaching Non-Librarians about OER
Location: Student Services Building, Red Room

Steven Ovadia, LaGuardia Community College, CUNY & Ann Fiddler, CUNY Office of Library Services
Open Education Resources are shareable, reusable pieces of digital content used to support student learning. While commonly thought of as textbooks, they can be everything from course shells to slide shows. In Fall 2014, CUNY’s Office of Library Services launched a fully online seminar to train faculty in the implementation of OER. This workshop will explain the online seminar and discuss some of the challenges and successes of trying to spread the gospel of OER.

F61. Interactive Orientation Using GooseChase
Location: Library 1014, First Floor

Leah Galka, Katherine Bertel, Ken Fujiuchi & Amy Rockwell, SUNY Buffalo State
Butler Library at Buffalo State was recently looking for a way to engage students in an interactive orientation activity. After much research and planning, we decided to host a self-guided photo scavenger hunt (using the GooseChase app) that took students throughout the library and the campus. They explored Buffalo State by answering questions and tracking down important areas around the library and the campus – all while having fun and taking silly pictures of each other. This presentation will share our findings in planning and implementing this activity.

Logan Rath, The College at Brockport, SUNY & Eileen Daly-Boas, University of Rochester

F63. Flipping for Instruction: Using the Flipped Class Model in Library Instruction
Location: Library 1004D, First Floor

Eduardo Rivera, Long Island University – LIU Post
Are you looking for new ways to approach your library instruction classes? Then take a look at the “flipped classroom” model, which has been gaining traction in classrooms around the country of late with high profile spots on 60 Minutes and TED talks on The idea of the students doing the classwork at home and the homework in the class, with the teacher to help out and guide the practical application of the material, is one technique that teachers have used for some time. This session will look at ways to flip your library instruction classes, whether they are of the one-shot delivery variety or a full course. The session will also present the results of a two year experiment that ran library workshop courses using a traditional lecture method and compared the grades to sections that used the flipped classroom model. The experiment was done at Long Island University/LIU Post.

F64. No More Sleepy Hollow: A Collaborative Approach to Teaching and Promoting E-resources to Attentive College Students
Location: Library 0014, Lower Level

Kristin D’Amato & Susan Slaga-Metivier, Central Connecticut State University
With library vendor fairs all the rage right now, Central Connecticut State University’s Elihu Burritt Library decided to try out this approach for e-resource promotion. Electing to try a different spin on the idea, the Burritt Library had librarians rather than vendors work the “vendor” booths in order to promote and instruct patrons on the use of the library’s e-resources. Learn how a program that successfully promoted awareness of e-resources also built relationships between staff and students and increased staff morale through interdepartmental collaboration.

F65. Computer Club & Library Projects

Using the Alfred University Libraries’ Digitization Working Group as a model, this presentation explores how working groups can be used to encourage the acquisition of new skills among library employees, to facilitate communication and collaboration, and, ultimately, to help move complex projects forward.
