Art History Information Literacy Asynchronous Online Instruction: a tale of two platforms
Elsa Loftis, Portland State University
Partners at Portland State University created information literacy modules for Art History students to investigate an adaptive learning platform for asynchronous instruction. We followed two cohorts and compared their performance using an adaptive platform to a control group. This talk discusses the outcomes and assesses this case.

Reading between the lines: Understanding ebooks as primary objects for design students
Michele Jennings, Ohio University Libraries

In this lightning talk, a lesson plan will be shared linking information literacy and user experience instruction for first year students studying visual communication.

Facilitating a Faculty Learning Community in Special Collections
Judy L. Silva, Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania
Facilitating a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is an excellent way to introduce classroom faculty to unique library resources. Participants explored the library’s Special Collections, identifying potential teaching materials to enrich their pedagogy. The FLC met face-to-face over the course of one semester, sharing their discoveries at the last session.

Variations on a Meme: Teaching Visual Literacy in a Fun, Remote Environment
Bridget Retzloff, University of Dayton
Jillian Ewalt, University of Dayton
This lightning talk will share experiences designing and implementing an asynchronous co-curricular visual literacy program. The interactive tutorial introduced students to fair use, public domain, and Creative Commons images and included an active learning component where students created their own fun and lighthearted memes using new visual literacy skills.

Our Artists, Our Culture: Critically Cataloging The Black Arts Movement
Nic Caldwell, The Morgan Library and Museum
This lightning talk focuses on how critical, ethical, and anti-racist cataloging come into play when describing materials created during the Black Arts Movement of the 1960-70s. The talk will provide specific examples of how enhancing catalog records can make these materials more discoverable to researchers, focusing on works published by Black-owned presses.
