For a course on information retrieval systems, I researched the information literacy needs and obstacles of undergraduate music students. Based on my findings, I developed and led an effective and engaging student-centred lesson on how and why to use the database RILM when researching music. Preparing and leading this lesson was fun for me because I got to apply my teaching skills acquired from my previous jobs in Korean universities to the information literacy field.
I facilitated a seminar on Indigenization and decolonization of information organization. I learned more about how knowledge organization systems are being developed that incorporate Indigenous peoples’ approaches to knowledge and ways of knowing and came up with learning activities for my classmates to examine and discuss these issues in a critical way.
