The Laurier Library is seeking out great candidates for our open limited-term, part-time Science Librarian posting. Click here for details. I’m certain that the person who takes on this file will get a lot of classroom/instruction time and will see many research consultations – you’ll be busy, but it will be a Good Busy.
The Library is accepting applications until July 22, 2013, so act fast!
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.
Last 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.
