Detlefsen, Barsh win WISE Online Teaching Awards
The iSchool offers congratulations to Ellen Detlefsen and Adele Barsh, who were recently honored by the Web-based Information Science Education (WISE) Consortium. Detlefsen and Barsh were recipients of the WISE Excellence in Online Teaching Award for 2011. The awards are given to faculty nominated by WISE students from institutions other than the faculty member's home institution. Dr. Detlefsen, Associate Professor, was recognized for her efforts to promote “sharing amongst classmates” through a series of interactive exercises in her Special Topics course, Information Sources, Services, and Technology for an Aging World. Adele Barsh, who serves as an adjunct for the iSchool, was noted for incorporating real-life examples and collaborative learning in her Special Topics course on Collection Development for Academic Libraries.
