ALAO DLIG/IIG Co-Hosted 2020 Virtual Summer Workshop Series

ALAO's Instruction Interest Group and Distance Learning Interest Group are joining together to provide a series of free virtual workshops on topics relating to teaching and learning in a remote environment. All of us are facing challenges as we continue to serve our students and faculty during the COVID-19 pandemic as we switched rapidly to virtual learning. The webinar series aims to keep librarians connected and inspired as we move forward and will cover topics related to copyright, accessibility, active learning and more.

Creating in Quarantine: Making Online During COVID-19
Sarah Nagle, Creation and Innovation Services Librarian at Miami University 
Stefanie Hilles, Arts & Humanities Librarian at Miami University

During spring 2020, universities found themselves navigating an unprecedented and sudden shift to online learning. Librarians play a crucial role in connecting students and faculty with digital tools and resources during this challenging time. However, it can be difficult to envision how hands-on, object-based, or maker workshops can be transitioned to online formats. This presentation will discuss how an art librarian and makerspace librarian are engaging their patrons with online maker projects during quarantine. They will share best practices for successfully reimagining in-class instruction for an online environment and how academic libraries can virtually support creative making outside the classroom.
