    Students tend to engage best with material when they’re having fun with it. In this workshop, we’ll talk about ways that you can gamify both physical and virtual classrooms to engage students in more active learning techniques, especially when it comes to leading information literacy sessions. From simple tools like buzzers or dry erase boards to creating augmented reality games or choose your own adventures, you’ll learn about a wide range of easy to complex activities you can implement in your own classes.

    Presenter Holly Jackson is the Student Success Librarian at Mansfield University and enjoys using hands-on and/or gamified techniques in her classroom sessions, both in library sessions and in full semester courses she’s taught in First Year Experience, English, and Honors.

    Please join LILRC in welcoming David Magee, award-winning columnist and author of Dear William, A Father’s Memoir of Addiction, Recovery, Love and Loss.

    The last time David Magee saw his son alive, William told him to write their family’s story in the hopes of helping others. Days later, David found William dead from an accidental drug overdose. Magee addresses his poignant story to all those who will benefit from better understanding substance misuse so that his hard-earned wisdom can save others from the fate of his late son, William.

    With honesty and heart, Magee shares his family’s intergenerational struggle with substance abuse and mental health issues, as well as his own reckoning with family secrets—confronting the dark truth about the adoptive parents who raised him and a decades-long search for identity. He wrestles with personal substance misuse that began at a young age and, as a father, he sees destructive patterns repeat and develop within his own children. While striving to find a truly authentic voice as a writer despite authoring nearly a dozen previous books, Magee ultimately understands that William had been right and their own family’s history is the story he needs to tell. 

    About David Magee: David Magee is an award-winning columnist, author, inspirational speaker, and the Director of Institute Advancement at the University of Mississippi. He is a change-maker on alcohol and other drug wellness education and support and wellbeing. He helped inspire and create the William Magee Center for Wellness Education at the University of Mississippi, named for his late son and designed to improve lives with new solutions.

    Formerly a columnist for Newsweek, and a former daily newspaper and magazine publisher and a vice president of Alabama Media Group, David is the author of a dozen books including How Toyota Became #1, named a Top 10 Business Book of the Year from the American Library Association, and  The Education of Mr. Mayfield, a best book of the South (2009), and he has been a regular guest on CNBC.

     “A firsthand, eye-opening story of a prosecutor that exposes the devastating criminal punishment system. Laura Coates bleeds for justice on the page.” —Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award–winning author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist.

    When Laura Coates joined the Department of Justice as a prosecutor, she wanted to advocate for the most vulnerable among us. But she quickly realized that even with the best intentions, “the pursuit of justice creates injustice.”

    Through Coates’s experiences, we see that no matter how fair you try to fight, being Black, a woman, and a mother are identities often at odds in the justice system. She and her colleagues face seemingly impossible situations as they teeter between what is right and what is just.

    On the front lines of our legal system, Coates saw how Black communities are policed differently; Black cases are prosecuted differently; Black defendants are judged differently. How the court system seems to be the one place where minorities are overrepresented, an unrelenting parade of Black and Brown defendants in numbers that belie their percentage in the population and overfill American prisons. She also witnessed how others in the system either abused power or were abused by it—for example, when an undocumented witness was arrested by ICE, when a white colleague taught Coates how to unfairly interrogate a young Black defendant, or when a judge victim-blamed a young sexual assault survivor based on her courtroom attire.

    Through these revelatory and captivating scenes from the courtroom, Laura Coates explores the tension between the idealism of the law and the reality of working within the parameters of our flawed legal system, exposing the chasm between what is right and what is lawful.

    About Laura Coates:

    Laura Coates is a CNN senior legal analyst, SiriusXM host, and adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of Law. A former federal prosecutor, Coates served as Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia and a Trial Attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, specializing in the enforcement of voting rights throughout the United States. As a civil rights attorney, she traveled throughout the nation supervising local and national elections and led investigations into allegations of unconstitutional voting practices. In private practice, Laura was an intellectual property litigator with an expertise in First Amendment and media law. A graduate of Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs, and the University of Minnesota Law School, Coates resides outside of Washington, DC, with her husband and two children.

    Footprints:Jewish Books Through Time and Place is a project dedicated to collecting information about individual copies of Jewish books printed between 1450 and 1800. Based on a range of material sources and through a wide network of collaborators and contributors, Footprints collects and aggregates information about the movement of copies of Jewish books printed in the long early modern period (roughly corresponding to the hand-press era), and follows evidence of their movement into the twenty-first century. In this presentation we will explore how Footprints derives its information, how its data is linked to other authorities, and how it represents its findings to offer exciting opportunities to encounter big questions about the ownership of books and the transit of knowledge about Judaic topics in a global view from the early modern period to the present. [bold]

    Presenters:

    Michelle Margolis Chesner is the Norman E. Alexander Librarian for Jewish Studies at Columbia University and a co-director of Footprints: Jewish Books Through Time and Place. Michelle is also the Vice President/President-Elect of the Association for Jewish Libraries, and she works at the intersection of Jewish book history and digital humanities.

    Joshua Teplitsky is an associate professor in the Department of History at Stony Brook University (SUNY), where he researches and teaches about Jewish about Jewish life in Central Europe in the early modern period. His book, Prince of the Press: How One Collector Built History's Most Enduring and Remarkable Jewish Library was published in 2019 and was named the winner of the Salo Baron Prize of the AAJR for best first book in Jewish Studies in 2019, the 2020 Jordan Schnitzer Book Award of the Association for Jewish Studies, and was a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award. He is currently at work on a book reconstructing a plague epidemic in eighteenth-century Prague and its impact on the lives of Jews and Christians. He has been interviewed for his research on epidemics and Jewish life in Times Higher Education and Time Magazine. He is one of the co-directors of the Digital Humanities project: Footprints: Jewish Books through Time and Place.

    Clean datasets have similar properties and look the same, while "dirty" datasets are messy in their own ways. Knowing what clean data looks like and how to clean data is an important skill in assisting researchers in making their data FAIR ( findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable).

    In this webinar, you will learn to identify the components of a clean and tidy dataset and describe the steps needed to process a "dirty" dataset. With these components identified, you will be able to tidy your own data and provide guidance to researchers.

    You’ll see, in action, common data issues solved by carrying out data transformation and pivoting operations. You’ll also learn the steps needed to break down observational units into separate tables (“normalize” data) so they can be efficiently stored in databases.

    This webinar is a companion to Clean & Tidy Data: Getting Started with Spreadsheet Data. The webinars stand alone and work together synergistically. Getting Started will show you best practices for beginning to work with medical data

    Special Note: This webinar is approved for the “under construction” Advanced Level of the Data Services Specialization. A Basic Level Data Services Specialization Certification is currently available.

    Learning Outcomes

    • At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Identify the components of a clean and tidy dataset
    • Apply knowledge of the components of a clean and tidy dataset to cleaning data
    • Identify the steps of normalizing data

    My Name is Chrissy Hirsch. I am a children's librarian and a nature lover. I grew up in Rosedale Queens for most of my childhood. My Grandma and Grandpa had a small container stoop garden in Queens and would grow zucchini, tomatoes and peppers. They used to fry the zucchini flowers for us to eat as treats.  We moved to Long Island and I started my own garden in my early teenage years.

    I love when I see families come together in our library garden and relive their childhood memories of their family gardens. 

    We hope to grow and learn with the community and become a family garden together.

    My name is Tamelee Young. I am a children's librarian and a garden enthusiast. I grew up here on Long Island and my parents always had a garden. I want to share and learn new ideas with the community. We can learn so much from each other. Gardening is universal. My favorite part of gardening is, watching a seed grow.

    If someone uses a wheelchair, or is visually impaired, it can be easier to understand the difficulties they might face and to support them. For those individuals with hidden disabilities, it’s often a different story. People might not spot the challenges they are experiencing and may find it hard to comprehend or believe someone with a “hidden” impairment genuinely needs help.

    Learn about some of the hidden disabilities you may encounter during your events, including Long COVID. You will be offered strategies that you can employ to ensure you are providing an inclusive program with suitable accommodations for all your audience members.
