I’m a co-editor for a forthcoming openly published book on collaborations between faculty and librarians in Open Education, including open pedagogy and open textbook adoption.

2017: “The Disappearance of Daniel Bennett”

I co-created an “Information Literacy Escape Experience” with librarians from the University of Rochester, SUNY Geneseo,  Genesee Valley BOCES and BOCES 1 in Monroe County. Daniel Bennett leaves his bookbag (complete with his notes and a laptop) and an ethical dilemma about cyberbullying for his friends to figure out, while trying to find and access a flash drive.

We mapped out a research process scenario and mapped the concepts to the ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries) Information Literacy Framework and the AASL (American Association of School Librarians) Standards Framework for Learners, making this escape room versatile enough for a high school or university audience.

We’ve presented this at ALA-Annual, GenCon, and NYLA conferences, as well as run the experience in local high schools and at our institutaions. It’s a fun way to have students interact with puzzles and research at the same time.

If you’d like to run this Escape Experience at your school, you can find all the instructions here.
