Trudi E. Jacobson, Distinguished Librarian, is the Head of the Information Literacy Department at the University at Albany Libraries. Her scholarly interests involve metaliteracy, including digital badging for metaliteracy abilities, and open pedagogy. She has recently become involved in editing Wikipedia and Wikidata, and participates through her information literacy courses in the Wiki Education student editing program. Her 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. She has written numerous scholarly articles, co-created four massive open online courses (MOOCs), and contributed to several other substantive online learning resources. Trudi co-chaired the national ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force from 2013-2015, whose work resulted in the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
Thomas P. Mackey, Ph.D. is Professor in the Department of Arts and Media, School of Arts and Humanities at SUNY Empire State College. His research is focused on metaliteracy, a model he originated with Trudi E. Jacobson, as a pedagogical framework for reflective teaching and learning. Tom authored the framing chapter for their third metaliteracy book Metaliterate Learning for the Post-Truth World. This research informed the grant-funded Coursera MOOC Empowering Yourself in a Post-Truth World that was recognized by Inc.com as one of the “20 Online Courses That Will Make You More Successful in 2020.” Tom teaches Information Design, History and Theory of New Media, and Digital Storytelling. He developed and taught Ethics of Digital Art and Design for the 2019 Cyprus Residency.
