Discussion DLS Discussion at 2015 ALA Annual Conference

by Jill Hallam-Miller on Thu, Jul 9, 2015 at 07:44 am

On June 28, 2015, at the 2015 Annual Conference in San Francisco, the ACRL Distance Learning Section’s Discussion Group hosted a session that was a continuation of the Distance Learning Section’s sponsored program held June 27, 2015, titled “Intentional Teaching Online:

On June 28, 2015, at the 2015 Annual Conference in San Francisco, the ACRL Distance Learning Section’s Discussion Group hosted a session that was a continuation of the Distance Learning Section’s sponsored program held June 27, 2015, titled “Intentional Teaching Online: Using Instructional Design to Enhance Distance Learning Instruction.” That program featured panelists who demonstrated best practices of the principles of instructional design to effectively create, deliver, and assess online library instruction, and thus address learners’ needs and motivation. Panelists and their topics were:  Amanda Clossen, Learning Design Librarian, The Pennsylvania State University, addressed ways of making content accessible; Joelle Pitts, Instructional Design Librarian and Professor, Kansas State University Libraries, spoke to a rapid prototyping instructional design model; and Kimberly Mullins, Instructional Design Librarian, Long Island University at Post, presented the IDEA model (Interview, Design, Embed, and Assess).

For the Discussion Group’s session, Facilitator Cheryl Blevens divided the 23 attendees into four groups and presented them with four discussion questions. To assure that all four questions were covered, each group was given a sheet listing all four questions, but in randomized order. The attached document provides a point-by-point listing of the groups’ responses to the questions.

We welcome your comments and suggestions, and would like to continue adding to the document. You can comment here, or add your comments to the document HERE. Please feel free to share the document with your colleagues, and encourage them to share their ideas with us!
