Description: Please join the Distance Learning Section Discussion Group in our virtual post-Midwinter discussion, “ACRL DLS Assessment at a Distance: In Theory and Practice Meeting.”  We will host speakers Jenna Kammer, Instructional Designer at the University of Missouri and Navadeep Khanal, E-Learning Librarian at the University of Missouri. They will share how to assess meeting student learning outcomes using assessment plans geared toward the macro level of reviewing institutional data, to the micro level of collecting and analyzing in-course assessment methods and student performance in online courses. Our third speaker, Natalie Bennet, Online Services Librarian at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, will share how she uses discussion boards to gauge student learning and will demonstrate the use of discussion boards to gain vital qualitative assessment.

    Will this webinar be recorded? I know they usually are, but I wanted to double check. Most of us cannot make it that day but really want to watch it later! Thanks in advance!
