Association of College & Research Libraries, Distance Library Instruction Poster Session. Online. April 13-17, 2020
As the demand for online classes and programs continues to rise, librarians are learning how to transform face to face library instruction activities to meet the needs of students outside of the library walls. This presentation will highlight theoretical concepts paired with one library’s experiences in developing engaging, realtime online library instruction sessions to meet the instruction demands of classes taking place off campus. Attendees will walk through the process of targeting online and face to face, off campus courses, getting faculty to buy-in, drafting synchronized online lesson plans that incorporate the new ACRL framework, and practical howtos when conducting a live online session. This active session will include a blend of theoretical ideas with practical applications of classroom experiences in a synchronized environment. Participants will take away: examples, lesson plans, marketing advice for faculty, and assessment ideas.
