Description

Faced with the challenge to reduce face-to-face instruction hours, the MacEwan University Library instruction team initiated a redesign of our IL program for first-year undergraduates. Our goal: to create a sustainable IL instruction model that could be managed by our instruction team, reduce duplication of content and effort, incorporate both online and in-person instruction and promote self-directed learning opportunities through a new Learning Commons. We successfully piloted the new model in Fall 2013, with full implementation planned for Fall 2014. In this session we will share details of our blended instruction model, which incorporates: timely face-to-face classroom visits, online learning modules, hands-on critical thinking activities and student-directed drop-in research workshops. Participants will experience our no-tech learning activity, view content from our CC licensed tutorial, and have the opportunity to share ideas for adapting, scaling, and modifying blended learning models for sustainable IL programming.
