While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations, we focus on the kinds of skills that library schools generally expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually turn out to require additional study. These workshops earn Continuing Education Units, and are intended as professional development activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate as your own schedule allows.

Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

Gamification is a hot new buzzword in academic circles, but what does it mean, and what does it mean for librarians? This four week course will explore readings and research on the effectiveness of gaming, discuss ways in which librarians can use gaming in their own instruction, and survey gaming products and case studies of the use of games in instruction. The course aims to provide practical as well as theoretical knowledge and participants will leave the course with numerous resources to use to implement their own gaming strategies.

Scott Rice is the E-Learning and Digital Initiatives Librarian at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, where he works on producing, promoting, and assessing e-learning, as well as emerging technologies and other digital projects. His research interests include e-learning, mobile applications, and educational gaming. He is the co-editor of the book Gaming in Academic Libraries: Collections, Marketing and Information Literacy.
