Announcing Connect & Communicate — Save the Dates!
The College & Research Division of the Pennsylvania Library Association is pleased to announce a new series of online programming intended to:
- foster a community of academic librarians from across the state
- provide professional development opportunities
- provide an additional venue for presenting research, demonstrating best practices, and sharing innovations
Our team is planning two upcoming events to kick off the Connect & Communicate Series, so please save the dates! Both events are free and open to all who wish to participate.
Discussion: Technology in the Classroom — Wednesday, August 15, noon-1pm
Grab your lunch and join us for an informal discussion of technology in the classroom. What works and what doesn’t? Does technology enhance or distract from teaching and learning? And what about assessment? Any cool new tools you want to share?
Presentation: Information Literacy in an Age of Algorithms, by Kristen Yarmey, Digital Services Librarian, University of Scranton — Tuesday, September 11, 11am-noon
Save the date and please watch for more details.
Please stay tuned for more details about joining us for these events via Adobe Connect and conference call. If you would prefer we email you directly with more information, you may provide us with your name and email address here: http://goo.gl/4urXl
In addition, we would like to hear from you! Please share your ideas for programming topics, speakers, or formats here: http://goo.gl/IljHr
We hope you’ll join us!
