I am the Head of the Information Literacy Department at the University at Albany Libraries. My scholarly interests involve metaliteracy, including digital badging for metaliteracy abilities, and open pedagogy. I've recently become involved in editing Wikipedia and Wikidata, and participate, through my UUNL207 courses, in the Wiki Education program. My most recent books include Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners, written with Tom Mackey (2014), Metaliteracy in Practice (2016) and Metaliterate Learning for the Post-truth World (2019), both co-edited with Tom Mackey, and Teaching with Digital Badges (2018), co-edited with Kelsey O’Brien. I have written numerous scholarly articles, co-created four massive open online courses (MOOCs), and contributed to several online learning resources. I co-chaired the national ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force from 2013-2015. I am currently writing chapters for another book with Tom Mackey, Metaliterate Learners as Producers, due to be published in 2021. One of the chapters I've written indicates the role that metaliteracy can play scaffolding students in open pedagogical courses.
