Teaching with Digital Primary Sources - September 22, 2021
As records of firsthand accounts, primary sources reveal something about their creators and cultural context, which can lead to a transformative classroom experience in person or virtually. Over the last year and a half, librarians who teach with primary sources have been challenged to find new and inventive ways of enabling students to engage with primary sources virtually. This webcast with authors from ACRL’s Teaching with Primary Sources Cookbook will explore the work of teaching with digital primary sources and discuss the challenges and opportunities that the COVID-19 pandemic has created for this type of teaching.

Online library instruction: Best practices for live synchronous teaching - October 6, 2021
Synchronous online library instruction -- classes delivered live via Zoom, Webex, or other conferencing platforms -- have become much more common in the past year, but most of us never learned in library school how to approach this teaching format. This session will help your live online classes become a little less nerve-wracking: learn how to take advantage of the live online classroom environment, discuss some advantages and limitations compared to the in-person classroom, and how to make the most of your time with students.
