Free Online Instructional Design in Libraries Conference (I’m on the Keynote Panel!)

posted in: Career Progress, Conference | 0

It’s not too late to sign up for a FREE online instructional design in libraries conference – only a week and a half away! It will be Wednesday, March 13, from 12 pm to 3 pm Pacific.

I’m thrilled to report that I’m going to be on the Keynote Panel, which kicks off the conference at noon Pacific!

There will also be 16 concurrent sessions to choose from. Everything will be recorded for later viewing. Did I mention – it’s FREE?!?

Here’s the conference synopsis:

Instructional Designers, technologists, and online learning specialists are in high demand across all levels of education as it shifts online. In 2004, the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community was established to promote the adoption of instructional design and technology as a vital skill set for librarians seeking to more deeply integrate their teaching and learning initiatives into the curriculum and community. Since then, instructional design and dedicated staff positions to support it, have become more commonplace in and critical to libraries, particularly at colleges and universities, but they are by no means ubiquitous.

This edition of Library 2.019 will bring together the community of librarians, instructional designers and other educators whose work happens at the intersection of instructional design, educational technology, learning, and libraries. This is also a conference for those wanting to learn more about how instructional designers are advancing the educational mission of their libraries and institutions, how the latest innovations in educational technology are being applied in libraries and classrooms, and what we can expect as instructional design and technology transitions from a peripheral to core function within libraries. While the future of libraries may be uncertain and unpredictable, this is an opportunity to explore how library professionals and their colleagues can shape it through the application of instructional design and technology.
