    Sponsored by- Connecting to Collections Questions about digital asset migration and access? Lynda Schmitz Fuhrig of the Smithsonian Archives will address the challenges associated with digital preservation. By taking into consideration user needs and reformatting options, effective planning will ensure access to digital content in the future.

  2. Resource Description and Access Overview: Making RDA Work

    November 20, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    Sponsored by- Infopeople This webinar will cover the basics of RDA, including changes that will be noticeable to library staff (catalogers and non-catalogers alike) and to library users. Information in this webinar will range from practical tips for dealing with RDA records to thoughts about how RDA fits into future changes to library catalogs.

  3. 7 Reasons to Flip the College Classroom – And How to Do It

    November 20, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    Sponsored by- Cengage Learning Interested in engaging students in new ways, while activating deeper learning and better retention? Join Cengage and guest speakers Craig Roberts and Marc Sperber for a virtual workshop on how and why to flip your college course. In this webinar, Craig, a professor of neuroscience and learning at the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, and Marc, an instructional designer at the Duke University School of Nursing, talk about what drew them to the flipped classroom model and their experiences in helping faculty across the curriculum to flip their courses. Marc and Craig introduce the theoretical foundation of their approach—Chickering and Gamson’s Seven Principles of Effective Education – and apply it to their real-world experiences and best practices for “flipping” learned in their own classroom and work with other faculty.

  4. The Librarian As Teacher

    November 21, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Sponsored by- Cengage Learning Overcoming common misconceptions about librarians, Kathleen L. Roy, Library Media Center Director at Cretin-Derham Hall School in St. Paul, will be sharing with us ways in which she operates day-to-day as a teacher. With advocacy for her students at the center of her mission, Kathleen will touch on how she works collaboratively with her teachers, administration, and parents to provide a successful learning environment in her library and beyond.

  5. Going Global with Virtual Instructor-Led Training: Bucking Tradition (and myth)

    November 24, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    Sponsored by- InSync Most virtual instructor-led training today follows the traditional footprint of 60 minutes. Popular belief is that anything longer means you will lose your audience and that people are too busy to devote any more time than that. So, what do you do when you want to take a 3-day, 24-hour course, make it virtual, have a live instructor, and give the learners a phenomenal, memorable learning experience? This session will answer this question by giving you some insights based on Dr. Lockhart-Jones’s 12 years of experience delivering tremendously successful, live, virtual instructor-led training, for global, geographically dispersed participants, with courses running 4-5 hours per day, 5 consecutive days a week.

  6. Discovering a Gold Mine of U.S. Government Information: Exploring the Hathitrust Catalog and Its Rich Veins

    November 25, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

    Sponsored by- Federal Depository Library Program This webinar will cover finding historical information such as agency annual reports, Congressional hearings, statistics, and numerous other materials on historically significant and contemporarily relevant Government policymaking issues.

  7. Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Using the Arduino to Develop Coding Literacy in Libraries

    November 26, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Sponsored by- Nebraska Library Commission In this talk, John LeMasney will discuss the trials, tribulations, and successes of creating and teaching classes on Arduino as programming at several New Jersey libraries across the state. Arduino is an open source hardware platform for learning about and making electronics prototypes to scratch your own itch. It is a well-supported, low-threshold-of-entry approach of inviting those new to electronics to create their own working circuits at a low monetary cost and little existing knowledge. I'll demonstrate what Arduino is in the larger sense, and why it's fun and easy to get started with Arduino.
