National - Love of Learning Awards
 Joelle Pitts

$500 Awarded

Joelle Pitts,  assistant professor and instructional design librarian at K-State Libraries, is receiving a Love of Learning award. She is one of 80 recipients nationwide to receive the award.

Pitts will use the funds to travel to the American Library Association conference in San Francisco where she as part of a panel session is speaking about the use of the rapid prototyping instructional design model to create quality library learning objects.  She will also present two posters -- one about K-State's LibGuides content management system and another about a study of library awareness and usage by distance students and faculty.

Pitts was initiated into the Society in 2011.

The Phi Kappa Phi Love of Learning Award program helps fund graduate or professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, career development and travel related to teaching and studies for active members of the society, which is the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.
