Join the DLS Instruction Committee for our FREE Spring Webinar:
Collaborative Instructional Design: Leveraging Resources to Build Online Learning Experiences
Student interest and participation in online courses and learning experiences are growing, but library budgets and resources are typically not. Collaborative instructional design is one way to leverage existing staff and technology to create library learning experiences for patrons in online spaces.
Joelle Pitts, Instructional Design Librarian for Kansas State University, will discuss the case for collaborative design and guidelines for successful implementation based on her work leading an inter-institutional library instruction consortium. Particular focus will be given to the design and development phases, including the use of the rapid prototyping model, and the logistics of team testing and assessment. Critical questions, transferrable tips, and common challenges will be shared.
Date: May 19th
Time: 9am PDT, 10 am MDT, 11am CDT, 12pm EDT

The deadline for submitting Paper Presentation proposals for the next Distance Library Services Conference is April 23!
What is a Paper Presentation? The Paper Presentation format requires that you write a paper and then present at the conference. Your paper will be published in both the conference proceedings and later in special issues of the Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning. Your presentation is an opportunity to share issues, findings or conclusions related to your paper.
The average attendance for the past three conferences was 273, so in addition to your paper being published in the Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning, you will benefit by presenting at a smaller, focused conference with ample networking opportunities.
Proposals should fall into one of three general tracks:
- Teaching & Learning (e.g. technologies, strategies, instructional design, assessment, best practices, successes/failures)
- Marketing & Outreach (e.g. advocacy, assessment, collaboration, strategies)
- User Experience (e.g. assessment, best practices, initiatives, student success)
If you want to share your research, projects, or ideas with others providing library services online or at a distance, this conference is the place to do it! Submit your Paper Presentation proposal soon!
