Steven MacCall: Winner of LJ's 2010 Teaching Award
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v135 n19 p24-25 Nov 2010
This article profiles Steven L. MacCall, winner of "Library Journal's" 2010 Teaching Award. An associate professor at the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, MacCall was nominated by Kathie Popadin, known as "Kpop" to the members of her cohort in the online MLIS program at SLIS. Sixteen of those students banded together to urge Kpop to write and submit the nomination. The contagious enthusiasm and pride of that squad, the fourth in the history of the SLIS online program, is strong evidence of the spirit MacCall imparted to its 40 members, who call themselves the Fantastic Fourth Regional Cohort. As the distance education coordinator at SLIS, MacCall continues to refine the online program, which has just begun its sixth group. About a third of all SLIS students enroll in the distance program, an online, 36-credit curriculum that most students can complete in six semesters or two calendar years.
