Adjunct Teaching for the iSchool at SU

Me with some of my students from an online section of IST616, meeting online in Zoom.

I teach several classes online for the School of Information Studies (iSchool) at Syracuse University, for their MSLIS program. I lead 90 minute live sessions in Zoom once a week for 11 weeks in a quarter term. During these live sessions, I lead students in class discussions and hands-on cataloging exercises, including small group breakout activities.

The class I teach most often is IST 616: Information Organization and Access. For this class, students get lots of hand-on practice with RDA, MARC, LCSH, LCNAF, DDC, and LCC. However, we also observe others kinds of metadata, in settings other than traditional libraries, to think more generally about a variety of approaches to different metadata standards and best practices. The asynchronous content for this course is by Professor-of-Record Jian Qin.

I have also taught sections of IST511, Introduction to the Library and Information Profession, and IST663, Motivation and 21st Century Learning, both using asynchronous lectures created by Barb Stripling. I also teach IST611, Information Technologies in Educational Organizations, with asynchronous lectures by Professor-of-Record Marilyn Arnone.
