Round Table Discussion April 18th

Topic: Assessing Asynchronous Engagement

April 18th at 3:00 pm EST

The ACRL Distance Learning Section Discussion Group invites you to join us for the next DLS Round Table Discussion!

A large portion of distance librarianship depends on teaching, supporting, and collaborating with students asynchronously. Motivation, engagement, and participation in asynchronous courses was the focus of our first round table discussion. Now we would like to expand upon our strategies for assessing these interactions – both assessing student learning outcomes as well as keeping track of our interactions..

We encourage new and experienced librarians to take part in this discussion. These discussions are about learning and sharing. You will be a valuable addition whether you are just getting started or you have all the answers.

Register to participate in this interactive session now! Participation is limited to the first 90 registrants!!


Please send any questions to the DLS Discussion Group Co-Chairs, Kristin Heathcock (kheathcock@hccfl.edu) and Lindsey Wharton (lwharton@fsu.edu).

Feedback Requested!

The DLS Strategic Planning Committee updated the DLS Section Manual and the draft is available for feedback, comments, etc. The areas in the manual that were updated include:

  • charges to reflect the new committee structure
  • membership data
  • past leadership information
  • names of committees throughout the document where necessary

Please review and make comments by COB  April 7, 2017.
