Work with me: Limited Term Business Librarian Opening

The Laurier Library is searching for great candidates for another limited term posting.  We have a 1-year, limited term part-time appointment for a Business and Economics Librarian at our Waterloo campus.  Working with our other Business and Economics Librarian, the person who takes on this position will hit the ground running and be quite busy interacting with the School of Business and Economics – the largest faculty at Wilfrid Laurier University.

I promise that this would be an incredible learning opportunity for new or recent grads, and also a chance to gain and build upon your existing experience with business and economics librarianship.

Business and Economics students at Laurier work with stats and data quite a bit, so I expect to collaborate often with who ever fills this position.  I’m happy to answer any general questions you might have about the posting, the university, and living in Waterloo, Ontario.

See our Business Librarian posting here.  The application deadline is August 5, so start moving on this one soon.

OLA 2013 Poster Presentations: Doubling Down on Online Teaching and Learning

Are you going to The 2013 OLA SuperConference?  Are you going to be there on Thursday, January 31?  If so, then come say Hi! while my colleague, Pauline Dewan, and I present our poster at lunch.

steeleworthy_dewan_ola2013_posterLast spring, Pauline and I were tasked with analyzing the Laurier Library’s online teaching and learning programme.  We spent quite a bit of time examining the Library’s original teaching and learning objectives, how we we meet them today, and what others are doing and we we could be doing to improve online learning in this area. The outcome was a major internal report, which we are all now mulling over.  Another outcome, obviously, is this poster, Doubling Down: An analysis of and recommendations for Wilfrid Laurier University Library’s online teaching and learning programme.

To be clear, we’re still in the early stages of organizing and acting on our recommendations, but we’re still quite happy to talk about our process and examinations thus far, which is why we’re at OLA 2013.

If you can’t make it to OLA, then check out our materials here.  And if you are at OLA, then you can find our abstract in PDF form here.

Happy conferencing!
