Student Use of Mobile Devices for LIS Coursework: Implications for Educators

Presented By:

Dr. Michael Stephens, Associate Professor, San José State University

Nikki Rudiger, Recent graduate from the iSchool at San José State University


Moderated By
:

Dr. Susan Alman, Lecturer, San José State University

 

Presentation Description:

The goal of this webinar is to engage with participants around the idea of what “on the go” learning means for current and future students and LIS educators.

We will present an overview of our own and other recent research on mobile device use for coursework as a means to explore how course delivery is evolving. We will introduce participants to the Student Power User and explore what the concept of “learning everywhere” might mean for LIS programs seeking to provide a future-friendly and engaging program in chaotic and changing times. Then we will facilitate discussion relating to successful and creative ways to enhance the student experience with mobile devices to prepare our students for an increasingly mobile future.
