Join the Chicago Distance Library Services Group for our second event on Friday, November 4, at 2:00 PM CST. The meeting will take place at DePaul University’s DePaul Center (1 E. Jackson in the Chicago Loop). We will meet in DPC10028 on the 10th floor. The topic will be “Librarians Embedded in an Online Research Course for Adult Learners”.

Since 2008, DePaul University librarians have provided research instruction for both online and in-person sections of the School for New Learning’s LL 300 (Research Seminar) course.  The School for New Learning (SNL) is DePaul’s adult-learning program. All SNL undergraduate students are required to complete this research intensive course to graduate.  In Fall 2013, the LL 300 librarians changed curriculum in the online classes, providing additional instruction, assistance, and support for the students. In 2016, they completed a project to assess whether or not these new interventions had made a difference. Sue Shultz (Business and Social Sciences Librarian) and Jessica Alverson (Assistant Coordinator for Instruction of E-Learning) will present the findings from this study, as well discuss the evolution of the embedded instruction program.

To RSVP, go here. Snacks will be provided. Afterwards, join us for networking, discussions, and planning for our next event.
