Health sciences librarians are increasingly called upon to address the intersection of identities and cultures in their institutions. This workshop introduces you to critical librarianship through an examination of identities. You’ll complete a creative assignment related to your identity and craft a plan to incorporate critical librarianship into a selected area of your work.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Create a creative identity collage to explore their personal identity.
- Select and apply critical librarianship to at least one area of their librarianship practice.
- Identify appropriate classroom assessment techniques in order to assess student progress with information literacy concepts
