Event Information

The Libraries’ February 2012 MTI Workshop

Presenter(s):
Karen Hogenboom, Numeric and Spatial Data Librarian; Merinda Hensley, Instructional Services Librarian and Coordinator of the Scholarly Commons; Carissa Holler Phillips, Business and Finance Information Librarian
Description:
Teaching faculty are increasingly using numeric and spatial data sets in their courses. In turn, students need specialized instruction in finding, formatting and analyzing data, and libraries are developing services to address growing needs. We will examine a survey revealing trends for how teaching faculty are using data in their instruction, the nature of the support requested from the library, as well as plans for developing and assessing services that increase students’ data literacy. And finally, we'll provide an overview of progress at Illinois and an outline of where we're hoping to be in the future in providing a wide range of data services.

RSVP: Pre-registration is required due to space limitations. Please contact the Libraries’ MTI Coordinator Merinda McLure
