The Online Learner: Sinking or Swimming?
A webinar in collaboration with ALA's Learning Round Table focused on putting the "learner at the center" of continuing education and training.
This event has passed.
The "learner at the center" has become a core strategy in education and training. Strategies like flipped classrooms, MOOCs, or peer collaborations are all part of a trend toward very personalized learning—"me-learning." These trends increasingly emphasize online learning environments that are learner-initiated, learner activated, and learner-constructed. How can individuals prepare to own their own learning and how can administrators help them stay afloat? Presenters from WebJunction and Learning Round Table will share their discoveries about the future of learning and strategies for supporting and empowering the learner.
This webinar is hosted in collaboration with ALA's Learning Round Table.
Presented by: Maurice Coleman, Technical Trainer, Harford County Public Library (MD), and Betha Gutsche, Program Manager, WebJunction.
