Technology & Trends presents "Going Beyond Tools" Webinar

Going Beyond Tools: Looking at the Big Picture of Instructional Design and How to Leverage Open Educational Resources

Instructional technology can mean many things and come in many different forms. Often, when we as librarians think of instructional technology, we think of individual tutorials that we have to make ourselves. But that is not all there is to employing instructional modules in your library.

This webinar features a panel of innovative thinkers in the area of instructional technology and design: Katy Webb, Head of Research and Instruction at East Carolina University, Kyle Denlinger, E-Learning Librarian at Wake Forest University, and Daniel Powers, Online Instructor and Instructional Designer for the University of California Irvine Division of Continuing Education.

They will take a step back from the specifics of creation and look at larger questions, such as how to decide what to actually create, what resources can we use so that we do not have to reinvent the wheel for every institution, and how to actually assess these experiences. They will also be looking at ways that they have moved beyond video to increase interactivity for patrons and students. Expect an interesting, thoughtful, and wide-ranging discussion, with lots of time for questions at the end.

Registration is required, but completely free! Please register online at

Those who register will get login information for the webinar by 9am on the day of the webinar, Tuesday, 11/29.
