These are some of the projects that I have worked on either at one of my jobs or developed in a course.
iSchool MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses)
I was a part of the course design and development team for the MOOCs at the iSchool which required working directly with a small team of faculty and staff to get the course off the ground. I was responsible for adding much of the content to the course and for many of the technical issues that arose while creating the course. As of September 2013, we have completed two MOOCs: A Brief Introduction to Data Science with R, and New Librarianship Master Class. A third MOOC about applied data science is currently in production to be released later this year. Please contact me for more information about the courses and my participation in their creation.
IST 613 Project, Marketing, and Assessment Plan
The final product for my IST 613 course was a Project, Marketing, and Assessment Plan for the introduction of a bakeware collection (cake pans and other baking instruments) into a local public library. This plan was made through direct consultation between my group of four students, including myself, and my contacts at the library. The plan detailed the overall project plan, a marketing plan for the project, and an assessment plan for every goal and outcome of the project. You can download this plan here. As of October 2013 this plan is being implemented at Manlius Library, as well as shown on their Pinterest page and through this article.
IST 605 Pathfinder
A pathfinder or library guide in website form for the city of Pompeii, Italy. This was made for the course Reference and Information Literacy Services. This can be viewed here.
Prezi on Using Social Media
This presentation was used to inform an undergraduate class at the iSchool, IST 444: Information Reporting and Presentation, about practices for personal and professional use of social media. The Prezi can be viewed here.
Video/Audio/Screen Capture Tool Project
I collected information about different video/audio/screen capture tools in order to evaluate them for implementation at the iSchool of Syracuse University. This required me to test them and return my results to my supervisors. I was also in charge of running them through a complex matrix to determine the feasibility of using them in conjunction with Blackboard Learn.
Collection Development Acquisition Form (CDAF) Project
I was in charge of organizing and filing CDAFs as new books are processed for circulation. In addition I was responsible for maintaining a spreadsheet record of them and assisted in developing the protocol for the project.
IST 511 Video Project
A video with the prompt "You Need A Degree For That?" explaining why you need a degree to become a librarian. This video was made for the course Introduction to the Library and Information Profession. The video can be viewed here.
