About the Event
Teaching librarians and technology trainers have long used the Internet to create flexible, shareable learning objects and to augment their classroom instruction. Emerging web technologies now allow library instruction to become ambient, user-centered, agile, and responsive. In this workshop, participants will explore the continuum of technologies available for constructing web-based instruction, from proprietary screencasting software to open-source, "2.0" services and technologies. They will be introduced to the conceptual and philosophical underpinnings of Web 2.0 and will collaboratively brainstorm ways to apply these principles to help users find, evaluate and use information. Regular opportunities for hands-on practice will be integrated into the presentation.
Presented by: Anne-Marie Deitering, Rachel Bridgewater, Karen Munro
