Designed to be reused and shared, learning objects are digital content and assessments centered on student learning outcomes. The promise of sharing online instruction across libraries, campuses, or a consortium holds time-saving appeal. An easy to follow tutorial for creating online library instruction with learning objects, this manual is written by three librarians with the New Literacies Alliance (NLA). Winner of the 2016 ACRL IS Innovation Award, NLA is an interinstitutional information literacy consortium that addresses the “new” literacies required for academic success and lifelong learning. This book
  • walks readers through creating and sharing outcome-based lessons that allow students to master skills at their own pace;
  • demonstrates how to use assessment to ensure that students learn foundational research and critical thinking skills rather than simply how to use a database or discovery platform;
  • sketches in the background and mission of NLA, sharing examples of successful collaboration across institutions;
  • includes an assortment of NLA’s workflows, design processes, and style guides; and
  • offers project planning and implementation tools, including checklists, steps, and critical questions to consider.
Written for groups or individuals who want to collaborate to build learning objects, this book will also be useful to anyone with a desire to learn more about resource sharing, instructional design, and library instruction.
