Building a Scholarly Communication Boot Camp for East Carolina University Liaisons
Shirkey, Cynthia; Hoover, Jeanne K.
A growing demand for scholarly communication expertise led two librarians at East Carolina University to create a series of informative and interactive sessions for liaisons. These boot camp sessions covered topics such as open access, citation management, research impact, data management, authors’ rights, copyright, digital humanities and OERs. The goal of the boot camp was to familiarize liaisons with these concepts enough so that they might be able to talk with faculty about them. To achieve this goal, the developers of the sessions used active learning exercises and a flipped classroom model.
