Extended Online Learning

Here are some extended online learning opportunities (for FREE) that I hope you’ll consider trying out:

Starting today (but you can catch up  mid course) Instructional Design Service Course from Canvas Network).  Feb 22-May 15.  This is a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course).  I’ve signed up and would be glad to have some other trainers from Montana libraries join me. Find more information here:  https://www.canvas.net/browse/designersforlearning/courses/instructional-design-service

Tomorrow – Big Talk From Small Libraries – and all day online conference…drop in anytime:  http://nlcblogs.nebraska.gov/bigtalk/

March 16th – Library 2.016.  The focus this year is on privacy issues in the Digital Age.  This is a worldwide online conference.  Find more info here:

  • Collections (e.g., acquisition, selection, processing, cataloguing, preservation, managing digital and physical resources)
  • Institutional management (e.g., facility operations, supervision, Human Resources, financial management)
  • Technology (e.g., computing and software systems, web design, networks)
  • Leadership (e.g., organizational/strategic planning, senior leadership duties)
  • Public-facing (e.g., patron services, community engagement, reference, exhibitions)

And…lest you think that online learning is the only thing (it’s not)…be sure to check out the MT Library Association’s upcoming conference April 6-9.  If you can come a little early, I hope you will plan to join the MT State Library’s Commission meeting for the 2015 Summer Leadership Institute’s report.  The Institute’s library leaders are planning a terrific report on their projects and it would be great to lend your support – you’ll pick up some great ideas, too.
