Library Juice academy online courses

Forthcoming Library Juice Academy courses include the following. They are priced (mostly US $175), and asynchronous: you sign up in advance or in the first week and then follow them during the month (is the way I think they work):
October 2013

Game-Based Learning in Library Instruction (Instructor: Scott Rice) http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/011-gaming.php

Getting More Active Learning Into Your Teaching (Instructor: Andrew Walsh) http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/041-active-learning.php
December 2013
Online Instruction (Instructor: John Doherty) http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/015-online-instruction.php
Marketing the Library in the 21st Century (Instructor: Debra Lucas-Alfieri) http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/044-marketing.php
This is just a selection geared towards information literacy, there are a number every month. "These are online classes that are taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The classes do not meet together at any particular times, although the instructors may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment."
