Dr. Olga Koz is the experienced Graduate Education Librarian at the Kennesaw State University. She provides instruction, training, and research support for faculty and graduate students on topics including research synthesis, systematic and traditional literature review, literature searching and evaluation, research data and citation management. She also a member of the College of Education faculty-driven organization “Research Consortium”, where she supports the other elements of research cycle (data management, publishing, measuring research impact and so on). Her areas of expertise include educational psychology, knowledge and media management, information and computer science, including information retrieval using a cluster, concept, and sematic search. Olga holds a Doctor of Management (DM) with a concentration in Emerging Media Management from the Colorado Technical University and a Master of Library and Information Sciences (MLIS) from Emporia State University.

Description of Proposal

Literature reviews are the source of constant stress among doctoral and master level students and, at the same time, the most popular assignment among instructors. After teaching numerous workshops, webinars, Literature Review Bootcamps, and co-teaching “literature review modules,” I decided to create an interactive web-based learning tool, the Literature Review Design (LRD).

You are welcome to use it before the workshop. Access URL:http://libguides.kennesaw.edu/LRDesign

During this workshop, I will share with you the information about the tool and demonstrate how it was used as a complementary learning aid to scaffold instruction and within the KSU Interactive Research Method Lab. You will also have a chance to go through 9 steps of designing and conducting a literature review. I expect a lively discussion afterward and constructive feedback! Participants will receive an email with a pdf document with a visual representation of the work done.

The tool helps students to build a visual representation of the conceptual framework emerging from critical readings, to narrow down research topics, develop research questions, and pursue other literature review objectives. It also might help researchers in creating non-traditional types of literature reviews such as systematic, scoping, integrative, meta-synthesis, and meta-analysis. The interactive tool help students to change their perception of the role, genre, and methodology behind the scientific literature review and make the process of reviewing literature similar to research.

What takeaways will attendees learn from your session?

The workshop introduces participants to the interactive learning tool for conducting a literature review. The presenter will make sure that participants will have an opportunity to be actively engaged and assessed the online learning tool. The workshop activities include the interaction with software (a learning tool), discussion on the possible use, design, and implementation.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify, understand, and work through the steps of the literature review design process

  • Modify and tailor the process to their needs or the needs of their students.
