WebJunction has just added a free course for library workers to learn how to design and teach online instruction. Design for Learning: 21st Century Online Teaching and Learning Skills for Library Workers (D4L) is a training program designed to enable library workers to transfer their in-person teaching skills to the online environment.
Design for Learning offers seven online self-paced modules: Orientation, Foundation, Diversity, Community, Content Creation, Course Management, and Capstone.
D4L was developed as a partnership between the the South Central Regional Library Council, Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies, and the Empire State Library Network. It is funded as a three-year grant, by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
