D12: Environmental Scan: Findings from the University of Minnesota Libraries new Accessibility Steering Committee
In 2018, University Libraries launched the Accessibility Steering Committee, the first such initiative for our organization.  As part of our charge, the group completed an environmental scan. We will share our process as well as the results of the environmental scan, focusing on how we assessed our own libraries landscape, identified internal and external partners, surveyed peer institutions, and reviewed accessibility literature.  We will also discuss how this information has shaped our plans moving forward.

D14: Improving Library Tutorials: The Multimedia Design Principles
Librarians are creating more online tutorials and videos to teach information literacy skills. Whether designing instruction online or in-person, research-based instructional methods are required and learning Mayer’s Multimedia Design Principles is the best place to start. In this session, you will learn about memory and how to minimize cognitive overload using these 12 principles: multimedia, spatial contiguity, temporal contiguity, coherence, modality, redundancy, individual differences, signaling, pacing, concepts first, personalization, and human voice.

D15-02: Fostering Design Thinking and Belonging in Makerspaces
This talk explores how we can foster design thinking and belonging in makerspaces. We discuss how various properties of physical space can help empower makers (particularly marginalized makers) to re-imagine/re-make their makerspace. The hope is that this re-imagined makerspace will enhance design thinking, foster belonging, and cultivate “maker” identities.
