Library DIY

1 min read

This looks like a nice self-help tool for an academic library: Library DIY. Even better, the code is open source and on GitHub. I see that it's not the only library using it. Chatham University has something of the same name, but not the same thing.

Arizona State University similarly released an open source project, Guide on the Side. That seems to have gotten a little more traction, and served as the inspiration for Library DIY

In-Class Collaborative Debate Mapping, or How a Mathematician Teaches a Novel

has class map pro-security & pro-privacy arguments from Doctorow's Little Brother:
summarize arguments on color-coded post-its
organize/categorize post-its on chalkboard
draw connections between post-its

thought: it's a low-tech mindmapping activity. Maybe something like this would have helped in TIC104 - lots of students didn't seem to get the Cmap activity, maybe due to the tech barrier. This is low-tech, physical, with group interaction - maybe the point would sink home better. Something to think about if I ever get the chance to do a course like that again
