This call mentions primary source instruction.
The Journal of Map & Geography Libraries invites articles highlighting practice and research-based approaches on the ways changes in information literacy philosophies have redefined/reimagined information literacy instruction in academic libraries. For this special issue we would like to include articles focusing on library instruction across all types of libraries that highlight creative approaches to student learning.
The purpose of this special issue is to expose map and geospatial information librarians to a wide range of instructional approaches in order to inspire new, creative ideas and collaborations for spatial literacy instruction.
We expect an interesting range of contributions, from traditional research studies to design cases and opinion pieces supported by literature and/or practice. Examples and experiences from outside the traditional boundaries of instructional design and educational technology will also enrich the discussion.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
Geospatial data literacy instruction
Application of the ACRL Information Literacy Framework to spatial literacy instruction
Primary source instruction
Curriculum mapping for information literacy
The flipped classroom model in library instruction
Active learning in library instruction
Practices and challenges in distance learning instruction
