Present at the IV Latinamerican Encounter of Librarians, Archivists and Museologists (EBAM)

I arrived at Buenos Aires, where I will present my PhD research for the first time in Spanish at the IV Latinamerican encounter of librarians, archivists and museologists (EBAM). My presentation was called (translated) “Doing online relearning through information skills (DORIS): Contributions for social research, information literacy programs and pedagogies”. This was an excellent opportunity of presenting my research in Spanish for the first time with my return to Latin America. Very nice to do this in a regional conference that gathered professionals from these three related fields.

In the presentation, I reflected upon the origin of this research: a) as an extension of the emerging topic from my master thesis about the use of social media for ‘serious’ purposes and b) as a return or combination with my previous research interest: information literacy.

I offer this research as a contribution to the understanding about the use of technology for higher education. Moreover, provide pedagogical contributions for information professionals wishing to expand upon them, because we librarians and related professionals are not prepared for this role in our typical curricula. It is important to highlight that in order to develop a good information literacy program and to continue following our new role of teachers or instructors, we need to: 1) a sound structure to develop such programs and 2) to develop pedagogic skills.

The slides and the full text are in the Spanish version of the blog, in Spanish, of course.

And here is a picture with Mafalda!! 😀

DORIS at Learning 2.0

I will be presenting my doctoral research on the (free) Worldwide Virtual Conference Learning 2.0. The presentation name is ” Doing Online Relearning through Information Skills (DORIS): Using social media in higher education”. This research in a nutshell is about the integration of social media into higher education and the discovery of the roles that information, digital and new literacies play in such integration. This presentation focuses on the contributions that my research can provide to pedagogies involving the use of technology, specifically social media. You may find information about my session here.

I give you the slides, the link to the recording of my session, as well as the audio file.
