via ili-l

Librarians who provide instruction are invited to attend the following workshop sponsored by UCLA’s Information Literacy Program.

“Coping in Tough Times: Approaches to Teaching IL with Limited Staff”

Thursday, March 18, 2010, 10 AM-noon SLT/Pacific Time, Second Life

(Second Life location will be provided in your RSVP confirmation message.)

Given current downward trends in staffing, librarians are designing creative ways to leverage their limited availability to provide library instruction to their users. This highly interactive, learner-centered workshop was created by instruction librarians for instruction librarians. Read about three approaches taken in Fall 2009 at UCLA for designing and conducting Train-the-Trainer information literacy sessions for teaching assistants and instructors in a variety of disciplines. During the workshop, discuss and consider these approaches for your own population groups and instructional needs.

This interactive workshop will be held simultaneously at UCLA and  in the 3D virtual world of Second Life. Second Life basic accounts are free: http://secondlife.com

Space is limited to 40 in-person participants at UCLA and 40 Second Life participants.
