The Flexibility of Google Tools (Sites, Docs, YouTube) for Teaching Data Information Literacy Concepts – From Online Instruction to the Flipped Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Fall 2012, the University of Minnesota Libraries launched an IMLS-funded online class to teach data information literacy skills. The online and asynchronous class was built mostly with Google Tools – Sites, YouTube, Docs. In Fall 2013, we repurposed much of the content to construct a “flipped classroom” series of workshops. This presentation will discuss our process of building and iterating content and discuss the strengths of Google Tools for creating flexible learning objects. We will also discuss the online and in-person instructional approaches to cover identical material and share our assessment results, completion rates, and student feedback for the two approaches.
