Tools, Strategies, and Pedagogy for Distance Learning - Tweetchat #teachonline

There is a special edition #DLFteach Twitter chat on Tools, Strategies, and Pedagogy for Distance Learning on March 25, at 2 p.m. USA Eastern time (which is e.g. 6pm UK time). DLF is the Digital Library Federation. "This #DLFteach Twitter chat is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of the global challenges that higher educational and cultural institutions are facing, we would like to have a conversation about best practices, methods, and opportunities to support our users and learners with using digital library technology and resources in distance learning. The aim is to support each other in brainstorming and sharing strategies & tools. Co-hosts are Sarah Moazeni (@sarahmoazeni) and Daria Hafner (@dhhafner). To join this conversation, follow and participate on Twitter using the #DLFteach hashtag. Chat questions will be tweeted from the @CLIRDLF handle.
Discussion questions are:
Q1: What opportunities or advantages has teaching online afforded you, your faculty, and your students?
Q2: What role do you think digital library technologies can and should play in a distance learning situation?
Q3: What digital library tools, resources, or platforms are you using to engage in distance learning? How are you using them?
Q4: How are you changing your support methods and channels for faculty and students using digital library tools in light of social distancing?
Q5: How might your learning outcomes change when teaching students about digital library collections and technologies when learning occurs online, or asynchronously?"
Archives of their tweet chats are available afterwards on their wiki:
Thanks to Esther Grassian for the alert
