Panel Session

Description

In a busy bustling library do we have time to sit down and train every group that comes through the door? What do we do about the groups that use the services that may never come through the door? How many people come through the door thinking the library is just a house of books? How many of those people got that idea from someone else? How do you open their minds to the possibilities? You teach the people that are teaching them. This session is about an experiment at OIT, hosted from off site to teach instructors off and onsite about using the library and modern information manipulation. In the Summer of 2009 the OIT librarians created a digital brown bag series for faculty about topics that would help them in the classroom and the library. Each librarian will take a turn teaching a synchronous session in person and online with an online version archived for people unable to make the session. Topics include creative commons in the classroom, getting books the library does not own , research through open source resources and more.

Teaching the Teachers: A Digital Brown Bag Series at Oregon Institute of Technology
