How PSU Libraries supports your teaching your students’ learning

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

Adobe Connect

This webinar will discuss the possibilities for library inclusion in your online courses. World Campus students or residential students who are taking an online course have similar access to library resources and services as residential students. However, a lack of awareness can inhibit students from using the library in their courses. A recent meeting even revealed that students pay for access to articles and books that the library can provide to students! Library instruction can take on a variety of forms and this webinar will highlight ways that library services, resources, and instruction can be incorporated in your online class. From an online orientation to the library to more in-depth instruction at higher levels the library can become a valuable partner in your online instruction. This webinar will be presented by Rebecca Miller, Department Head, Library Learning Services and Victoria Raish, World Campus, Online Learning Librarian.

Providing Meaningful Feedback

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST

Adobe Connect

 

In this webinar, we’ll be discussing strategies for giving meaningful feedback to students. It is well documented in the research literature that prompt and meaningful feedback enhances and enriches the learning experience of students and our students expect it! Providing feedback is a big part of online teaching and through this vehicle students feel your “presence” in the course. We’ll also discuss strategies to help manage the workload of providing such individual attention. Please join us for an interactive session where we’ll share ideas that can work for us all.

Register here! Please choose “[08/17/16-08/17/16] Webinar 013: Providing Meaningful Feedback ” from the event drop down list.  Registration will close on Monday, August 15. At that time you will receive the Adobe link to access the meeting space. All webinars are recorded and posted on our website for future viewing.
