Do you work with students who would like to publish? Three librarians who developed a 90-minute workshop to strengthen students’ knowledge and confidence in finding publishing platforms for their work will share examples of those activities in this workshop, and then examine the results of their assessment from participants. Join us to learn how to conduct a version of this workshop at your home institutions.
Viewers can expect to:
- Identify issues of educational equity related to publishing, and how library-sponsored programming can help to support and close these gaps
- Understand the contents of the publishing workshops, as well as the broader challenges of designing educational programming for a disciplinarily diverse group of students with a range of learning goals
- Be able to discuss an approach to assessing the success of the workshops and iterating the content of programming in an ongoing series
