Lightning Talks
These seven minute sessions are on Saturday, May 7, immediately following lunch.

A Library Peer Mentor Program to Support Student Learning, Career Futures, and a Reference Services Transformation

Julia Maxwell @ San Francisco State University

Two librarians at San Francisco State University implemented a Peer Mentor program to provide pivotal and new (to our institution) peer-to-peer learning interactions through research support. To support this goal, we created a semester-long asynchronous training course that taught five diverse Peer Mentors advanced information literacy and research support skills. This session will describe the ways in which the Peer Mentor program and training curriculum have shifted our library instruction and student support paradigms, and how we anticipate they will continue to change and enhance student success.

Applying UX design to Assess Information Literacy Videos: A Pilot Study with First-Generation and Non-Native English Speaking College Students

Tina Lin and Rebecca Greer @ University of California, Santa Barbara

Are you wondering how your library’s information literacy video tutorials are resonating with your students? Or, maybe you're just not sure if the fun background music and graphics you chose are too distracting for your viewers. These are common questions that library educators are conscientious of while building online content. Yet, beyond supplying evaluations or using summative assessments, designers don’t always know how their content can be improved or simply streamlined for their audience. Join this lightning talk to learn how user experience design can be used to assess video tutorials for a variety of design elements.

Giving the One-Shot a Second Shot

Kelsey Forester @ University of Georgia

Does the prospect of teaching a one-shot make you groan or excite you? There was a small amount of time when it did the latter for me. In this talk, we will be visiting the world of Educational Psychology and looking at the idea of educational interventions. We will explore how if we shift our thinking and conversation from what one-shots lack to the importance of one-shots as educational interventions, we gain the possibility of new questions, expectations, and outcomes.

“What Were They Thinking?” Using Student Perspectives on Academic Integrity to Inform Library Outreach and Instruction

Michelle Demeter @ New York University

Due to our ability to help students and faculty better evaluate information, academic librarians are often asked to incorporate discussions of academic integrity within their library instruction classes. This lightning round showcases the overarching qualitative results of these discussions and the efforts made to share this information with university administration and faculty. This lightning round will offer highlights of what the librarians learned and how they leveraged this data to contribute to several academic integrity initiatives across campus in a way that can be replicated on other campuses in an effort to contribute to student success.
