ACRL/DVC is planning a program on libraries and online learning. With the changing nature of higher education, the focus on MOOCs, expanding online programs, as well as hybrid courses, libraries have continued to work towards enhancing the library experience, both in-person and online.
Have you provided research support to students in online courses? Worked with faculty who teach online? How has your library tried to integrate more library resources into courses using online components? Have you developed online programs to support information literacy or lifelong learning? How has your library expanded services by leveraging online technologies? Have you developed any assessment or user experience strategies to determine effectiveness of online learning as it relates to library services?
If you were or are involved in any online, library-related services, consider sharing your experience and thoughts with other academic librarians. We invite you to submit proposals on any aspect of online learning and librarianship. A committee of ACRL/DVC board members will select the final presentations; this is an opportunity to add a peer-reviewed presentation to your CV!
The program will be on Wednesday, April 30 at the Penn State Great Valley campus in Malvern. All presentation slots will be 20 minutes long followed by a short period for questions and answers. To submit a proposal, simply send an email with a presentation title and description (300 words maximum) to Tina Hertel [email@example.com] by March 25 at 5:00 pm. Please contact Tina if you need further information.
