The ACRL/NY Distance Learning Discussion Group is pleased to sponsor a “meet-and-greet” on Friday June 7, from 9:30-11:00 am at the Mercy, Manhattan campus. The topic of conversation will be “Library instruction in the online environment: Designing for Use and Assessment.”
When tackling library support in online environment, a librarian needs to present information in a way that is both helpful for users and assessable for administrators. Join the ACRL/NY Distance Learning discussion group us as we talk with Robin Naughton, PhD (Drexel, and Vestar Consulting) about developing approaches to library instruction that are both user-friendly and assessment friendly. Dr. Naughton is an experienced researcher, educator, and information professional. Her research explores human-computer interaction (HCI) with a particular focus on user interface design and the use of user-centered research methods.
This is an “Open” Discussion meeting, allowing non-members to get their “feet wet” in ACRL/NY participation; thus both ACRL/NY Members and non-members are welcome to this meeting. Participation in all Discussion Groups is a benefit of ACRL/NY membership, and allows you to share experiences and get practical ideas and strategies for integrating best practices at your own campuses.
Coming to this open “meet-and-greet” will allow you to connect with colleagues to discuss:
- The increasingly-important role of instructional design and assessment in Higher education
- Library instruction design and assessment as it relates to Distance Learning faculty and students in particular
- The development of “designed/assessment-oriented” Library modules as a segue to collaboration with teaching faculty
