Description

Professional development for library workers, meetings and communication, and teaching information literacy instruction are increasingly happening in online-only platforms, yet we rarely talk past the technical logistics of bringing people together in conversation across technologies. In this lightning talk we will present ideas and practices that we have been experimenting with in our Online Learning Community of Practice, including networking activities, facilitation strategies, and embodiment exercises, that attempt to build community in online only spaces.
