Description

Online learning technologies present librarians with exciting opportunities to engage students beyond one-shot instruction sessions. This presentation highlights the development of a series of interactive online learning modules designed to teach critical thinking skills to freshman seminar students.

Developed to support the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s commitment to inquiry-guided learning, the modules focus on cultivating higher-level skills over the mechanics of conducting research.

This session will provide attendees with an in-depth examination of online instructional planning, design, and delivery processes, including a discussion of pedagogical, technological, and user experience considerations. The presenter will also discuss the challenges he encountered in creating sustainable online instruction that not only supports institutional learning objectives but is also learner-centered.
