With some help from Generation Why Librarian, we are now ready to
study you like a bug collect responses from any and all MLIS students who would like filling out the survey.
Survey link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9KXNMF5
There is a brief description of the poster plans in the first question of the survey, but here’s a recap in case you want to skim this post rather than opening links wily-nilly. We’re looking at the problem solving techniques and methods used by online MLIS students to collaborate on classwork in groups. We’re going to take the answers and make a poster to be presented at the SLA annual conference in Chicago in July.
Both of us have completed the Human Subjects Certification Program that Rutgers requires of us. I must say that completing the certification was informative as there was a lot of ground covered. It makes me feel like a mad scientist to have to be certified to use HUMAN TEST SUBJECTS. This sounds much cooler than just saying I’m sending out a survey. I think I need new business cards for SLA that emphasize my new certified status. Either that or I need my old UCLA department of anthropology t-shirt. On the front it said “UCLA Department of Anthropology” and on the back it said “We are watching you.” I will post a picture if I can find it but I think that shirt’s long gone. 😦
Thank you in advance to anyone who fills out our survey. Please contact me with any questions or feedback, this is the first survey I’ve drafted that wasn’t for a specific class so I am sure there is room for improvement. And to my Twitter followers, I apologize in advance, you’re going to see this link in my Twitter feed more than once.
