ALCTS Webinar: MOOCs and the Public Library: An Opportunity

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

All webinar sessions are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, 12 Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description

This webinar will discuss the opportunities for public libraries to promote lifelong learning by becoming meet-up destinations for MOOCs. The webinar is based on the experience of the Ridgefield (Connecticut) Library which hosted a ten-week literature-based MOOC.

This series of webinars features librarians and scholars from public and academic libraries reporting on the latest research about MOOCs and offering practical information on creating and presenting MOOCs.  It will appeal to librarians in academic, public, and special libraries.  Presenters will discuss the role libraries play in the development of MOOCs and share information that will enable attendees to familiarize themselves with the steps involved in developing a MOOC. Learn more about the Libraries and MOOCs webinar series, both upcoming sessions and those held in 2013 (recordings are available).

Presenter

Dorothy Pawlowski is Adult Services Librarian at the Ridgefield (Connecticut) Library. Her article “MOOCing at the Public Library,” appeared in the December 2013 issue of Library Journal.
