Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

The OSU Libraries & Press Library Faculty Association invites interested colleagues to the April presentation in our 2012-2013 Seminar Series. The upcoming seminar focuses on College Students, Technology, and Academic Workflows and will feature two presentations looking at different aspects of this topic.

 Finding Techknowledgey (Allyson Dean)

In an increasingly digital world, college assignments require students to complete demonstrations of their competency in not only their subject, but in the technology needed to complete the assignment.  This session disseminates students' perceptions around the hidden curriculum of understanding technology, having consistent access to technology, and knowing what questions to ask or resources to seek to succeed in using technology for university coursework.

 The Impact of Mobile Devices on Undergraduate Students’ Information Practices (Anne-Marie Deitering & Margaret Mellinger)

Six OSU undergraduate students were given iPads and followed over 20 weeks using case study methods to track how they integrated the devices into their information workflows —and how they did not. Analysis of the research data led to greater awareness of the cyclical nature of student information and study habits. Results suggest that students would benefit from incorporating technology into their academic rhythms early in their college career, ideally in the first year.

 Presenters: 

  • Allyson Dean is Head Advisor and Recruiting Specialist, College of Education, Oregon State University
  • Anne-Marie Deitering is the Franklin A McEdward Professor for Undergraduate Learning Initiatives and Head, Teaching & Engagement Department at Oregon State University Libraries & Press
  • Margaret Mellinger is Emerging Technologies and Instruction Librarian at Oregon State University Libraries & Press

 

When:  Friday, April 12, 2013, 10:00-11:30am

Where:  Willamette Industries Seminar Rooms (3622), Valley Library, Oregon State University, Corvallis campus.

Feeling Stressed?  Come visit the dogs at The Valley Library.  From 3-5pm on March 13th and 14th, dogs registered with Welcome Waggers will be in the Autzen classroom, ready for petting and playing.

Welcome Waggers is an all-volunteer group and their certified therapy dogs visit hospitals, schools, public libraries, and now OSU, bringing joy and stress relief to those they interact with.

 Although this is a first for OSU Libraries, bringing dogs onto colleges campuses is growing in popularity nationwide. A few recent examples include the University of Washington, Rice, MIT, Oberlin, and Emory.

 Questions or comments should be directed to Andrea Wirth (andrea.wirth@oregonstate.edu).
