On 4th April at 4pm US Eastern time (9pm UK time), there is a webcast in the Blended Librarian series: Lessons for Learning: Putting Project Information Literacy to Work. The guest speaker is Michael Eisenber, co-Principal Investigator of Project Information Literacy (PIL) and he will "delve into the implications of PIL findings for learning, teaching, and library services, resources, and facilities." The hosts for the webcast are Steven Bell and John Shank, co-founders of the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community.
The event is free, with no need for registration: the first 200 people will get the "seats". You need to join the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community if you are not already a member: go to http://blendedlibrarian.org, click on the join button and follow instructions. When you are asked for the invitation key enter the word blended. Once you are registered, you will be able to go to http://home.learningtimes.net/library?go=6031692 to log in for the session. The organisers advise leaving time to log into the Elluminate webcasting software and "recommend that those participating in the webcast obtain a microphone or headset in order to make use of the VoIP technology that allows conversation between the speakers and participants. A microphone or headset is not required to participate."
