Upcoming events

Using SAGE Video and SAGE Research Methods to Support the Development of Information Literacy

Tuesday, April 7, 2021 | 12:00 p.m. CST | Length: One-hour

REGISTER NOW

Educators who provide information literacy instruction based on the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education are tasked with designing learning outcomes as well as identifying resources to assist in delivering instruction. SAGE Video and SAGE Research Methods offer educators numerous opportunities to address specific aspects of the ACRL Framework in their teaching.

In this session we will explore the ways in which the SAGE Video collections and the Project Planner, a research tool available through SAGE Research Methods, can directly support the development of information literacy as identified in the ACRL Framework. We will provide concrete examples of opportunities for educators to incorporate streaming video content and the Project Planner in information literacy instruction.

This session will be led by Emily Smith, MSLS, a Library Relations Manager with SAGE Publishing with 10+ years of information literacy instruction experience.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify specific ways SAGE Video content and the SAGE Research Methods Project Planner support the development of information literacy skills as identified in the ACRL Framework
  • Embed videos and link Project Planner content into learning management systems, websites, and LibGuides
  • Use the accessibility features of the SAGE Video platform, including the custom clip maker, to enable deeper engagement with the video content
  • Create and take advantage of the profile functionality in both platforms, including the ability to create custom, shareable lists of content

Looking Backward to Move Forward: Using SAGE Resources to Gain Historical Perspective and Advance Social Science Research

Thursday, April 15, 2021 | 11:00 a.m. CST | Length: One-hour

REGISTER NOW

The evolution of research is steeped in the ongoing study and examination of a subject over time. Applying historical perspective enhances a researcher’s understanding of the present through the scope of the past. Through this lens historical perspective contributes a significant role to the discovery, progression, and application of new knowledge. Without it, researchers may find their research draws erroneous or misleading conclusions.

During this 1-hour session we will examine how CQ Researcher, SAGE Journals, and Data Planet aid researchers in developing historical perspective, expanding their ability to learn from the past in order to understand the present and ultimately impact the future of research.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the significant role historical perspective provides in creating the future of knowledge across the social sciences
  • Identify specific components of CQ Researcher, SAGE Journals, and Data Planet which contribute to developing historical perspective
  • Maximize the impact of these resources through enhanced discoverability, sharing, and embedding features for various teaching, learning, and research needs

This SAGE in Session topic will be presented by Vanessa Rusch, MLIS, a SAGE Library Relations Manager with 15+ years of diverse experience across libraries, publishing, and academia, who brings her passion for instruction and partnership to collaborate with librarians in supporting faculty, researchers, and students on teaching and learning with SAGE resources.

REGISTER NOW

Is increasing data literacy skills a priority for your courses or your library? Do the students you support struggle with understanding how to work with data? Are your researchers frequently on the lookout for more data but unsure how to access it? If so, join us for a training session to learn more about the data resources available from SAGE Publishing!

In this session, SAGE Field Editor Kathleen Saylor will explore the importance of data literacy and steps that can be taken to help improve data literacy at your institution, through the lens of two SAGE resources. She will walk you through elements of SAGE Research Methods (SRM) and Data Planet (DP) that have been designed to help users find reference material to help improve their statistical literacy, understand how to properly analyze data, easily navigate and identify datasets appropriate to their research questions, and present their findings in impactful and accurate charts and graphs.

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Define data literacy and explain why educators (and students!) need to be data literate
  • Identify relevant SAGE resources for the purpose of improving data literacy amongst faculty, students, and researchers
  • Understand the importance and function of each resources and their intended purpose to promote data literacy
  • Plan for future collaboration and dialogue in relation to the integration of data tools and data for use in the classroom and in research

Bringing Information Literacy into Your Classroom

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. CST | Length: One-hour

NOTE: This session was previously scheduled for April 28.

REGISTER NOW

Information Literacy is more than a buzzword, and the current media landscape makes it even more relevant for all of us. But most students don’t take a course specifically on “Info Lit.” Are you seeing students whose information literacy skills aren’t what they should be? This session is about how to weave info lit lessons and assignments into a range of courses. Come away with several concrete examples you can take back to your classes and use in your syllabi today.

During this session Patrick Cox, SAGE Field Editor, will demonstrate how Information Literacy is built into several SAGE resources, including SAGE Research Methods, CQ Researcher, and Data Planet. Patrick’s background as a faculty member and years helping faculty work SAGE resources into their courses will come to together to give practical ideas to work information literacy instruction into courses at your institution.

Be the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Understand information literacy as laid out in the ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy
  • Pick out information literacy content in several SAGE resources
  • Integrate elements of info lit from SAGE resources into lessons and assignments in your content area
