Online Round Table: Distance Learning!

The ACRL Distance Learning Section Discussion Group invites you to join us for the next DLS Round Table Discussion!

A large portion of distance librarianship depends on teaching, supporting, and collaborating with students asynchronously. Motivation, engagement, and participation in asynchronous courses was the focus of our first round table discussion. Now we would like to expand upon our strategies for assessing these interactions – both assessing student learning outcomes as well as keeping track of our interactions.

We encourage new and experienced librarians to take part in this discussion. These discussions are about learning and sharing. You will be a valuable addition whether you are just getting started or you have all the answers.

Register to participate in this interactive session now! Participation is limited to the first 90 registrants!!

Please send any questions to the DLS Discussion Group Co-Chairs, Kristin Heathcock (kheathcock@hccfl.edu) and Lindsey Wharton (lwharton@fsu.edu)

Let’s Play in the ACRL Sandbox!

Sandbox-2013 The ACRL Framework Sandbox: sandbox.acrl.org is accepting contributions!

The Sandbox is an openly accessible platform and repository for librarians engaged with the Framework to discover and share classroom and professional development resources related to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.

The Sandbox is a place of discovery and sharing that provides opportunities for collaboration and innovation in approaches to the Framework, both in the classroom and in terms of professional development.

Searching is freely available to everyone – you don’t need a login to start searching. And since the content of the Sandbox comes from you, the most important way you can celebrate the recent launch of the Sandbox is to contribute your Framework-related materials by creating a contributor account.

Jump into the Sandbox to share and learn from others!
