Curation: An Update

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Curation belongs in the curriculum. It should be part of your school’s search toolkit, part of your collection development strategy, part of your professional development plan, part of your effective Web presence! Joyce will define curation as a learning and workflow strategy and discuss--what might be curated, the best new tools for curating, students as curators, the role of student work in curation, and using curation as an effective strategy for scaling your practice.  We will also examine the importance of curating the new bounty of OER.
