Student Assistant Training Enrollment Now Open

Submitted by Cheryl Lowry:

Supervisors, here’s an easy way to enhance your efforts to offer educationally purposeful employment: Enroll your new student assistants in Teaching & Learning’s Student Assistant Training Program (SAT).

The program consists of two non-credit Carmen courses: Workplace Communication and iSkills. Students have two semesters to complete the courses, but most do it in only one.

Workplace Communication (takes about 4 hrs)

  • Teaches how to prevent and resolve conflict by treating others as though they are
    likable, competent and important.
  • Covers communication with co-workers and supervisors, as well as with patrons.
  • Uses elements of students’ current jobs to help prepare them for their future careers.

iSkills (takes about 6 hours)

  • Teaches most of the information literacy knowledge and skills covered by the Libraries’ instructional ebook, Choosing and Using Sources, which has had over 2 million uses.
  • Prepares student assistants for college research tasks and research tasks in professional careers.

Weekly reports from SAT Program staff keep you up to date about your students’ progress.

Your part in all of this?

  1. Enroll student assistants at go.osu.edu/satenrollment.
  2. Encourage students to finish. Supervisor’s’ expectations MATTER.

Apply to Participate: Free e-Learning Course on Privacy and Library Learning Analytics

Submitted by the Libraries Information Security Team:

We are pleased to announce this second call for expressions of interest for participation in a free e-learning course titled “Privacy and Library Learning Analytics.” The course will take place March 1-April 15, 2022. There are 50 slots available and there is no fee to participate.

This course is an offering of the Prioritizing Privacy, a multi-faceted continuing education program that will train academic library practitioners to comprehensively address privacy and other related ethical implications of learning analytics projects.

The six-week e-learning course will guide participants in exploring learning analytics, privacy theory, privacy-by-design principles and research ethics. Participants will develop and present their own personal “Privacy Sourcebook” to document their learning and guide their practice after the course is complete. The course format is cohort-based and asynchronous, offered in the learning management system Canvas and structured by weekly deadlines and required readings, learning activities and online discussions.

To apply for this free opportunity, fill out the application to participate by January 28.

Applicants will need to confirm that they:
• Work in an academic library in the United States.
• Have an interest in learning about academic libraries and learning analytics.
• Have an interest in learning about privacy and other ethical considerations in learning analytics.

Email Management Challenge: Week 6

Submitted by Caity Harvey:

The final Email Management Challenge focuses on identifying communications that have short-term retention, that are copies and not the official record, or that you are notified about but not responsible to manage. The bonus challenge requires a more nuanced, careful approach, so it will take longer to complete. This challenge is a helpful exercise to improve long-term email organization habits.

Versions for Outlook 2019 Desktop application (most common) and Outlook 365 which syncs with iOS/Mac are both available.
