Instructional Technologies and the Effects of COVID-19 on Library Instruction

Thre is a series of free e-forum discussions on the topic of Instructional Technologies and the Effects of COVID-19 on Library Instruction, taking place on August 24th and 25th 2021, between 10am and 6pm US Eastern time (which is, for example, 3pm-11pm UK time) each day. It is moderated by Breanne Kirsch (University Librarian at Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa, USA) and Melissa Johnson (Instructional Design Librarian, Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University, USA). "Join the Core Instructional Technologies Interest Group to discuss some of your favorite technology tools that are related to instruction. We will also be discussing the potential long-term effects of COVID-19 on library instruction. There will be 8 questions to answer during this E-Forum about instructional technologies and how they can be used in libraries and how COVID-19 has affected library instruction. Participate by answering the questions from August 24-25, or read other’s responses.
How does it work? "The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion."
Registration for e-forums is necessary to participate. "Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the list." Go to and email for help. It says "Your request will be approved within 1-2 business days" but I got an immediate response (you have to reply to an email) - however, best not to leave it til the 24th to join!
