I am honored to be participating in the 2015 Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL) at Loyola Marymount University. My focus with the scholars explores personal learning networks and reflective practice. Tonight, I’ll be hosting a Twitter chat for the 22 scholars. This post will serve as a resource for that chat.
For tonight, the scholars are reading:
Q1. MacMillan describes her “research experience” – what does the “whole pattern” of your experience look like?
Q2. What’s the role of theory in your research or are you drawn to applied research?
Q3. Horowitz and Martin describe important considerations for the researcher/practitioner and their relationship to LIS education and LIS professors. How might we improve/enhance these connections?
Q4. What realizations have you had about your own research practice?
Tips for the Chat:
- Start by introducing yourself, share your location (in your room, in the library, at the cafe?)
- Use the hashtag #irdl2015chat
- Use @ replies to address individuals
- Use answer numbers (A1, A2) to keep thoughts organized
- Share images, links, video, etc
