Even before the pandemic, online library instruction was a growing trend in the library world. Now it is essential.
In this eCourse, library instruction experts Dominique Turnbow and Amanda Roth show you how you can effectively move in-person instruction operations online with minimal disruption. The course will include readings, discussion topics, weekly assignments, and four optional, weekly, 90-minute live sessions. Each live session will be recorded for those that prefer to complete the course asynchronously. The instructors will take you from the design process to delivery, assessment, and quality control.
By participating in this course, you will learn:
- Key theoretical concepts in online instructional design and how they differ from in-person design
