Event Title Summary
Cultivating Protective Libraries: An Introduction to Public Library Social Work In 2009, San Francisco Public Library created the first dedicated, full-time position for a helping professional. Since then, library social work has spread to over four dozen systems around the United States. This session will introduce library social work, its history, and emerging best practices. We will consider the library as a protective factor in the lives of vulnerable populations. Special attention will be paid to the need for person-centered, trauma-informed lenses into the university education of future librarians.
Data is for Everyone: Census Tools to Better Understand Your Community This workshop covers freely available tools from data.census.gov, which fully replaced American Fact Finder just prior to the 2020 Census.
Learn to Love Data Planning: DMPTool Basics The webinar will guide researchers, librarians, grant administrators, and other research support staff in understanding data management plan basics, creating a DMPTool profile and exploring available templates and planning resources.
The Open RN Project: Transforming Nursing Education In 2019, Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) was awarded a $2.5 million grant from the Department of Education to create 5 nursing open educational resources (OER) textbooks and 25 virtual reality scenarios. This session will provide a high-level overview of the Open RN grant project and will share the development and review processes used to create the five nursing OER textbooks. Information on how to access Open RN textbooks and a demonstration of the associated virtual simulations using H5P software will also be provided. Additionally, national usage data and the impact of these resources on student outcomes will be discussed. Please join us to learn more about these nursing OER or get involved in the project by serving as a peer reviewer.
