Webinar today 19 March: Yes, You Can! Tips for Moving Online at Short Notice

This webinar organised by ALISE (US library educators association) is today (March 19) at 2pm US Eastern time (which is, e.g., 6pm UK time - time differences from the US are 1 hour different from usual at the moment in many countries). Yes, You Can! Tips for Moving Online at Short Notice is presented by Laura Saunders, Associate Professor at Simmons University SLIS and Melissa A. Wong, Instructor in the School of Information Sciences at the University at Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. "Even for veteran online teachers, moving a face-to-face course to an online format with only a week or two notice is daunting, but it can be done. In this workshop, seasoned online instructors will share ideas for getting your course up and running quickly, including: • Taking stock, re-purposing existing materials, and deciding on formats (synchronous vs asynchronous); • Keeping students engaged; • Reviewing best practices for both synchronous and asynchronous sessions; • Planning for flexibility for you and your students" Go to
