Join us next Tuesday, January 15 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern for our next #DLFteach chat on how you’ve approached ethical issues when teaching with or about digital libraries. Elizabeth Gibes and I will host (we’re
@eagibes and @ararebit on Twitter).
Here are the questions we’ll be discussing:
- Our GLAM professional associations articulate professional values, but what values are personally important to you as a digital library practitioner
and a teacher of digital library practice? #DLFteach
- Tell us about a time you were able to engage students with one of your professional values or enact one of these values in your teaching, like this moment
described by health science librarian Alex Carroll.
- Tell us about an ethical question that you’re not sure how to approach in the classroom. What’s the question, and what’s tricky about teaching it? #DLFteach
- What steps could you take to empower yourself to tackle ethical issues in the classroom, and what help do you need from others? #DLFteach
- In the coming year what ethical question would you like to engage in your teaching, or even just explore for yourself? #DLFteach
We also have a few suggested readings—absolutely not required!—that were on our minds when we wrote the above discussion questions.
- Drabinski, Emily. "Queering the Catalog: Queer Theory and the Politics of Correction." The Library Quarterly 83, no. 2 (April 2013): 94–111.
- Hathcock, April. “Open But Not Equal: Open Scholarship for Social Justice.” At the Intersection (blog), February 8, 2016.
- Robertson, Tara. “Not All Information Wants to Be Free (2016 LITA Forum Closing Keynote).” Tara Robertson (blog), November 20, 2016.
