High Tech and High Touch: Synchronous Online Library Workshops

Tuesday, March 19 | 4:15PM–5:00PM ET | Room 553
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
If your campus has seen an increase in online, distance, or adult learners, you might be wondering how to support the unique research and information literacy needs of this nontraditional student population. This session will explore how a library liaison to an asynchronous doctoral education program piloted a series of online, active learning workshops for new students. These workshops, which were delivered synchronously, utilized a series of technological tools to foster the engagement and participation more typical of a face-to-face session and increased students' comfort level with conducting library research.

Outcomes: Identify learner groups at your institution who could benefit from a synchronous workshop format * Identify the necessary technological components for hosting an online active learning workshop * Identify possible workshop topics suited to an online format
