Creating an Asynchronous Course for Embedded Librarians
This webinar will go over the evolution and process of creating an asynchronous course for subject librarians to take prior to being embedded in online courses. With over 17,000 World Campus students I cannot take the time to attend and participate in all embedded librarian meetings. However, an asynchronous course that covers the necessary content and prepares librarians who may have never been embedded before on how to embed successfully fills my absence in these conversations. A course like this allows the online or e-learning librarian to focus on coordination of the program at a higher level. Specific topics that will be covered are the balance between personalization and scale in online learning, the decision to make this course an open educational resource for other librarians to use and take, and the assessment and evaluation of the course.
