JELIS – Journal of Education in Library and Information Science » Blog Archive » Theories-in-Use and Reflection-in-Action: Core Principles for LIS Education by Phillip M. Edwards
"This article examines the extent to which two concepts from research on organizational learning—theories-in-use and reflection-in-action—could align with typical learning outcomes associated with LIS education. Two illustrative case studies are considered: one from an undergraduate-level course on search strategies and one from a graduate-level course in collection development. Based on the kinds of classroom experiences that are reported to be most valuable to students, these concepts appear to be useful for designing and assessing the effectiveness of activities, exercises, and assignments. Student feedback from these two cases, while not universally positive, is suggestive of the utility of these concepts as guiding principles for instructional design and evaluation in the context of LIS education."

JELIS – Journal of Education in Library and Information Science » Blog Archive » Learning to Teach Online: Creating a Culture of Support for Faculty by Kate Marek
"As online course delivery becomes increasingly prevalent in higher education, it becomes more important to assist faculty in gaining new pedagogical skills. This article scans current literature regarding concerns and best practices in this area, and reports on a study of institutional support for training LIS faculty. The online survey of 16 quantitative and qualitative questions was distributed to all faculty from ALA accredited master’s programs requesting feedback about what support was available and what support was especially needed and/or appreciated by the faculty members. The results of this survey suggest a model of institutional support that includes faculty course release, LIS program level training and support, and structured mentoring. Implementation of such a model will help institutions create a culture of support for online

Library and information science as a research domain: problems and prospects
While the field argued, the world moved on and other disciplines took LIS-based problems of information organization, management and use as their own, threatening some within LIS but encouraging others to embrace a broader, more theoretically-driven conce
