Rapchak, Marcia; Hands, Africa S.; Hensley, Merinda Kaye – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2023
This paper explores the practice of ungrading, a movement embraced by a growing number of teachers and professors who see the process of grading as disconnected and sometimes counter to the learning goals they have for their students. We discuss the limitations of traditional grading systems in the United States, mainly in the way that grading is…

Vamanu, Iulian – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2023
This article argues that the MLIS curriculum should offer information ethics courses that enable future information professionals to develop their imaginative powers through close study and discussion of fiction. LIS students reading ethical theory and fiction bring the two into conversation and as a result reach a better understanding of both.…
