Since Alison sent out the information about the final projects for our cohort, I figured it would be good to create a thread for us to workshop ideas we have and find collaborators (I wavered between categorizing this in assignments and collaborative work).
My first thought on a project was inspired by this week’s readings and the fact that I’m currently putting together my technology class schedule for August. I would like to put together a curriculum and learning materials to teach the “Security Mindset” since that could cover so much of what the LFI is seeking to teach us. I think there is a potential to put together materials that could support a single class or workshop up to a whole series that can be more comprehensive. I’ve been experimenting with series of classes and longer workshops at my library and find that some patrons really like them if the schedule works.
Obviously this would be something I (and anyone else in LFI) can teach at their library, but I think it would be great to aim to package it in a way that any librarian looking to teach this at their library could just download the materials and be able to teach it with little or no changes.
I am looking forward to hearing all the other ideas you come up with.
