Library Juice Academy offers a range of online professional development workshops for librarians and other library staff, focusing on practical topics to build new skills. The curriculum is designed by librarians with a focus on skills that are in demand in the profession, rather than the academic tradition of library education that tends to address other priorities. 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.

We get customers from around the world. So far, in addition to the US, people have taken our classes from Abu Dhabi, Antigua, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Benin, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, England, Fiji, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Guyana, Hungary, India, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Norway, Panama, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, and Wales.

While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations, we focus primarily on the kinds of skills that library schools 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.

Some fun facts about us: Since starting in October of 2012, we have taught 371 classes to students located in 42 different countries. After discontinuing a number of courses, we currently have 110 of them on the books, approximately two thirds of which are scheduled for teaching over the next six months. There are currently between 4000 and 5000 users in the course management system.

Developing a Credit-Bearing Information Literacy Course

Developing a Credit-Bearing Information Literacy Course

Instructor: Angela Pashia
Dates: August 1-26, 2016
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/125-credit-bearing.php

The one-shot is still the most common mode of teaching information literacy, so most library-focused professional development opportunities reasonably focus on that model. However, that leaves librarians who are asked to teach a semester-long information literacy course to seek strategies elsewhere. This class is designed to fill that gap, to translate skills honed in one-shots to a new format.

We will start with the assumption that you have some background in techniques for designing active, engaging exercises, but that you have not been solely responsible for grading student work or managing class dynamics across a full semester. Embedded in the discussions of class planning and classroom management, we will also discuss ways that this format provides opportunities to enact feminist and critical pedagogies. This class will focus on designing a semester-long information literacy course, but it may also provide insight that could be useful in working with other faculty to incorporate information literacy into their courses.

By the end of this course, participants will have:
– Practiced developing and connecting lesson-level learning outcomes and overarching course-level outcomes
– Explored different assignment types in order to determine the most appropriate method of assessment for the course learning outcomes
– Examined the value of rubrics for use in grading
– Compared syllabi in order to discuss elements you may like to include in yours
– Discussed classroom management strategies

This course can be taken as one of the elective courses in our eight-course Certificate in Library Instruction, but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/certificate-instruction.php

Angela Pashia is an Assistant Professor and the Instructional Services Outreach Librarian at the University of West Georgia, where she regularly teaches a credit bearing information literacy course. She has a Masters in Information Science & Learning Technologies, with an emphasis in library science, from the University of Missouri, and a Masters in Anthropology from the University of Virginia. She is currently focusing on practicing critical pedagogies, incorporating social justice issues into “the library course”, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Read an interview with Angela Pashia about this course:
http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/news/?p=778

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.

You can register in this course through the first week of instruction (as long as it is not full). The “Register” button on the website goes to our credit card payment gateway, which may be used with personal or institutional credit cards. (Be sure to use the appropriate billing address). If your institution wants us to send a billing statement or wants to pay using a purchase order, please contact us by email to make arrangements: inquiries@libraryjuiceacademy.com

The role of the embedded librarian takes many forms – in learning communities, community organizations, support groups and businesses. Embedded librarianship can include team teaching a course, becoming an important part of a local film/art/music festival, or integration of library resources into a school curriculum or an organization’s event. This course will discuss best practices and tools for working as an embedded librarian. We will explore how to initiate a collaborative relationship with faculty or community organizations, and also teach you how to partner with them for better student or event success. Participants will learn how to improve relationships with faculty and organizations and become an integral part of the curriculum, event, or program of study. We will also discuss how to use emerging technologies in embedded librarianship as communication and collaborative tools.
