The College & University Section of the North Carolina Library Association is offering a free webinar, “Creating an Asynchronous Course for Embedded Librarians”, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST on Wednesday, June 14. To register, go here. More information about the webinar and the presenter, Penn State University’s Victoria Raish, is below.

This webinar will go over the evolution and process of creating an asynchronous course for subject librarians to take prior to being embedded in online courses. With over 17,000 World Campus students I cannot take the time to attend and participate in all embedded librarian meetings. However, an asynchronous course that covers the necessary content and prepares librarians who may have never been embedded before on how to embed successfully fills my absence in these conversations. A course like this allows the online or e-learning librarian to focus on coordination of the program at a higher level. Specific topics that will be covered are the balance between personalization and scale in online learning, the decision to make this course an open educational resource for other librarians to use and take, and the assessment and evaluation of the course.

Victoria Raish is the online learning librarian at Penn State University. She has her Ph.D. in Learning, Design, and Technology from Penn State and a master’s in secondary science teaching from the University of Southern California. In her role at Penn State, she is responsible for creating and implementing the services, instruction, and communication strategy with all stakeholders involved with World Campus.
