Are you currently involved in planning lessons toward information literacy efforts? Do you use technology in your teaching to actively engage students in the learning process? Do you collaborate with professors to connect their specific content to non-disciplinary concepts/skills (e.g., information literacy)? If you answered yes to any of these, you might be a secret ID agent without even knowing it. In this hands-on workshop, we will expose your inner ID, setting you on a course where existing skills align with the greater mission of promoting and assisting faculty in the creation of learning environments that are collaborative, engaging and technologically rich. Your mission - should you choose to accept - will include brainstorming, group work, self-reflection, discussion, and scenario-based problem solving.

In this pre-conference workshop SUNY Canton librarians will discuss their experience with incorporating mobile technology into the information delivery process. Cantonâs iPad program has opened up alternative avenues for library staff, teaching faculty and students as they explore new models for teaching and learning. This interactive workshop will address the innovative programing and opportunities that iPads allow for transcending traditional models of library outreach, such as mobile reference, digital humanities, statistics recording, and interlibrary loan. Reflecting on their experiences with iPads in an academic library Jennifer and Mike will show you how to unleash the portable possibilities.

Gamification is the process of engaging users by turning ordinary tasks into games. Teachers and librarians have long been using games to make learning more fun and interactive, but this session will focus on the particular challenges of games for one-shot information literacy instruction. We will explore specific games used in library instruction at SUNY Delhi and how they have been received by students. Participants will also have an opportunity to test some games themselves and learn to design their own.
With the increasing interest in publishing services in libraries, library blogs, & other forms of public writing, the need for enhanced communication skills is apparent. Yet most of us never learned many grammatical fundamental, & there are few places that actually teach how to edit & proofread. This 90-minute workshop addresses this gap. The differences between editing & proofreading are briefly discussed. Techniques to increase efficiency in editing are presented. The bulk of the presentation consists of commonly found errors & explanations of how to correct them. Additional resources as takeaways are included as well. Questions & discussion are encouraged!
