CHICAGO — ALCTS is offering "MOOCs and the Public Library: An Opportunity," a webinar on Feb. 26. Presenter, Dorothy Pawlowski will discuss opportunities for public libraries to promote lifelong learning by becoming meet-up destinations for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). This webinar is based on the experience of the Ridgefield (Conn.) Library, which hosted a 10-week literature-based MOOC.
Dorothy Pawlowski is adult services librarian at the Ridgefield Library. Her article “MOOCing at the Public Library” appeared in the December 2013 issue of Library Journal.
