Librarians in the Course Design Cycle: Bringing Authentic Research Online

Wednesday, February 11 | 11:15AM–12:00PM | California Pavilion Promenade, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Introducing students to authentic research is a central and enduring pedagogical strategy at many institutions. Yet it can be challenging to translate robust research activities into online courses. Learn how librarians can contribute in order to become true collaborators with faculty and instructional designers at every phase of the course design process. The poster will include strategies in areas such as faculty development, course and assignment design consultations, developing learning objects and materials, and copyright consultations. We will also share early efforts to create cross-institutional collaborations and learning communities to improve the effectiveness of these collaborations.

OUTCOMES: Describe the rationale for incorporating research activities into online courses * Show locations on a course design process diagram where librarians can contribute * Identify directions for cross-institutional collaborations to improve the effectiveness of librarians' contributions
