Walker Presents at Information Literacy Conference

Claire Walker, research and instruction librarian in Bunch Library, was a co-presenter at the LOEX Conference held in Nashville from May 2-4. This national conference is focused on Information Literacy and Library Instruction. The session titled “Picture This: Instruction Librarians Promoting Academic Integrity” presented the results of a comparative ethnographic study about academic integrity (AI), conducted on two campuses – Belmont and The American University in Cairo. Using a method called photovoice, researchers were able to develop “snapshots” of the two AI environments and cultivate larger theories about university students and Academic Integrity, which can be used to design information literacy sessions.
