Framework for Action

 

Dr. Ross Todd (CISSL/Rutgers University) has described three types of EBP as a holistic Framework for Action:  

 

  • Evidence FOR practice, or the research that supports best practice.  

  • Evidence IN practice, or the expertise of librarians as they define and refine their practice. 

  • Evidence OF practice, or the evidence generated by practice showing its impact on students' learning outcomes.  

 

Framework: Holistic Model of Evidence-Based Pracrice for School Libraries (Todd, 2008)

Using the Framework for Action: Collaborative Group Work

  • Co-create an EBP Framework for Action focused on INSTRUCTION for Information Literacy/21st Century Skills.

    • Collaborative group document:  Group 1 (ES)  Group 2 (ES)  Group 3 (ES)  Group 4 (ES)  Group 5 (Secondary)     

    •  Ideas generated by groups will be aggregated on a single document and a link posted here, so that all participants may use it as a reference and add new ideas. 

  • LMS may use this blank EBP Framework for Action organizer to plan evidence-based practice for another major impact area from the research (reading, collaboration, professional development).

Action Plan

 

  • Examine a Model Action Plan (Kelly's beginning of a model based on Sandy Bixby's un-Deweying pilot project) 
  • Reflect on your current practice and needs to create an Action Plan focused on a specific instructional goal. 
    • Use this EBP Action Plan Template developed by Ross Todd and Lyn Hay.

    • Focus on a specific instructional goal, such as: teaching specific InfoLit/21st C skills; targeting particular grade levels/content areas;  implementing Digital Citizenship slam dunks, etc.

    • Refer to the Frameworks for Action for Instruction co-created by groups at this workshop for guidance to develop your Action Plan.

 

  • Later, consider creating Action Plans for other impact areas from the research, such as reading and professional development. 

 

Intersession Work & EBP Showcase

  • Based on your reflection and needs, create an Action Plan focused on Instruction as directed above. 
  • Gather and curate Evidence In Practice and Evidence Of Practice resulting from your Action Plan, using a variety of methods and formats. 
    • You may curate evidence in a folder on your VLC/Library wiki, in a One Drive folder, etc.
    • You will share a link to your curated evidence and Action Plan with ODL for the Showcase; we will post your link on our wiki.
  • At the EBP Showcase on April 5th, you will share your story and your evidence with a small group of colleagues.
