Dali, Keren; Hohmann, Garrett – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2023
Building on the concept of transformative learning and exploring the role of reflection in graduate professional education, this article uses student and educator reflections from the graduate course on reading practices to narrate four stories of learning. These stories, structured based on the "4Ls" model of reflection, describe what…

Bettivia, Rhiannon; Davis, Rebecca O. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2023
E-learning has increased through the years in MLIS programs, a trend that has been intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some students choose to take online classes; others have been required to do so by the pandemic. This raises the question: Are students properly prepared to learn online? For this study, researchers created an E-Learning…

Adle, Morgan M. – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2023
Library and information science (LIS) graduates work in a variety of jobs that require well-developed information literacy (IL) skills. They not only apply IL skills in everyday interactions with patrons but also use their conceptual understanding to design instructional programs and interventions. In this small-scale, pilot study the instructor…

Sullivan Zimmerman, Margaret; Rodgers, Brianna – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2022
Refugees and immigrants have adverse health outcomes after arriving in the United States. These negative outcomes tend to be disproportionate to those of the general population, regardless of the person's health status upon entry to the country. Research has shown that strong health literacy skills can improve health outcomes in this group. This…
