Description

Amy Barlow, Assistant Professor in the James P. Adams Library at Rhode Island College, discusses digital pedagogy and the library. First she will describe how students in her first year seminar selected and interpreted digital objects from the Rhode Island Postcard Collection for presentation on social media. Then she will share a data visualization assignment designed to capture extant metadata from bibliographic databases. In both cases, digital pedagogy was deployed to encourage critical understandings of information systems as part of the research process.
