October 18 @ 6 PM PDT -- Design 4 Learning Program to be held on Renaissance Island
Greetings SLED folks!
For the past three years, South Central Regional Library
Council (SCRLC) in
School of Information Studies at Syracuse University and
Empire State Library Network has
had an award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to help library workers design instruction for
online teaching. The program,
Design for Learning:
21st Century Online Teaching and Learning Skills for Library Workers
included participants from all types of libraries, subject specializations, and library experience levels, all over the USA.
Based on the experiences of the learners in the project's
two cohorts, the content has been revised and made freely available to the library community via WebJunction.org
This on-demand version of the program allows a self-selected, self-paced experience.
developers, instructors, and alumnihave presented about the project at
in-person conferences and
as well as via webinars.
On Wednesday evening we shall offer a one-hour presentation for the Second Life community to
insights and top lessons learned. Alumni will also present their Capstone projects: a unit of online instruction for their library, developed during the program.We invite you to learn more about the WebJunction program and to work through developing your own online
project with the support of a community of practice. Although some of the units may be more specific to library workers, many--including thediversity and community modules--have wider appeal and relevance.
