ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 7.4 B Juried Paper: Radically Changing Collaboration: Development of Community in an Online School Library Course

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

To properly prepare pre-service school librarians, school library educators in online courses must provide opportunities for collaborative engagement, while recognizing the pedagogical benefit of the organic formation of communities of practice that develop within an established third space, or area outside of content. This study examines the integration of third space constructs used to facilitate collaboration within a digital community of practice.
