Minow Honored with Teaching Award


Mary MinowMary Minow, San José State University School of Information lecturer, was honored by WISE with an Excellence in Online Teaching Award for her INFO 281 class “Seminar in Contemporary Issues: Digital Copyright.” Mary states, “I’ve had a series of small doable assignments, so that students were actively doing, rather than just talking and reading.” WISE students commented (from awards material):

Professor Minow is passionate about the subject matter, and truly is focused on student learning. It is evident that she enjoys teaching this course! She was readily available via discussion board or email and responded promptly to questions. Copyright, especially in the digital age is a crucial topic for librarians to be aware of, and not only did we learn about the law today, we were encouraged to participate in discussions for pending revisions to copyright law, and given resources to use to keep current with future changes.

The iSchool is part of the Web-based Information Science Education WISE consortium that provides opportunities for students in other ALA-accredited LIS schools to take courses for transfer credit in any of the LIS schools.
