Incorporating the Framework in Distance Learning
Free virtual workshop
May 5, 2015, 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)
Successful distance learning programs will incorporate the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. We invite you to work with other distance librarians to devise strategies for using the Framework in your distance instruction!
On May 5th at 2:00 p.m. (Eastern), join Trudi Jacobson, Distinguished Librarian and Head, Information Literacy Department, University at Albany, SUNY, University Libraries, and Co-chair of the ACRL Task Force that drafted the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, as she offers a presentation on the Framework.
Immediately following Trudi’s presentation, join a group of librarians in a virtual workshop designed to generate ideas for incorporating the Framework into your distance instruction. Be prepared to participate! The workshop will consist of six breakout rooms, one for each frame in the Framework, with approximately 16 participants working together in each breakout room to share and generate ideas for using the Framework at a distance.
Generate and share ideas for incorporating the Framework into distance information literacy instruction
Create a network of distance librarians seeking and developing solutions for incorporating the Framework into distance learning
After the workshop, participants can further develop–and generate new–ideas in a shared online resource
For the best participant experience, use a USB headset with microphone to listen to the presentation and interact with your workshop group. Without a headset, you can still participate with another audio source and via the chat feature.
This event will run for approximately one hour.
The workshop will be recorded, and made available to DLS members and workshop participants.
Registration for this event is FREE, and is limited to 100 participants.
