Creating Inclusive and Engaging Online Library Instruction
As libraries have rapidly moved their instruction programs online over the last several months, librarians are being faced with the daunting task of redesigning their instructional content for an online environment. Participants in this course will develop an understanding of the key elements of effective and inclusive online instruction in all types of settings from tutorials to single-session instruction sessions to multi-week classes. Through the course, they will be introduced not only to tools that can make online instruction more effective and engaging, but also important educational theories and models that they can apply to restructure their instruction to better reach an online audience. Participants will leave with skills that can be applied to both synchronous and asynchronous online library instruction.
Participants will gain experience with a variety of teaching models and tools. They will be given the materials needed to develop a resource guide customized to their own instructional needs
