Conversation Starter: What do LIS Students Really Think About Their Education? Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

Organizers and participants from the student-led 2015 Symposium on Library and Information Science (LIS) Education (lisedsymposium.wordpress.com) will highlight some of the findings from the two-day event, where students from ALA-accredited institutions across the United States came together to critically examine current practices in LIS education programs. We will share and discuss student-perceived areas of success within LIS programs, and identified calls for change as a result of Symposium discussions. Student-developed solutions and recommendations will be proposed for discussion and debate among participants. LIS students, educators, and policy makers are highly encouraged to attend. Student perspectives on the following topics include: Diversity, advising and mentoring, gaps in LIS curriculum: critical theory, technical competencies, administrative transparency, information ethics, reflections on online education, pre-professional experience and opportunities, costs and funding, required courses, career placement, dual degrees and specializations.
