Many libraries, both public and academic, have initiated or increased online instructional offerings in the past few years. In addition to allowing us to maintain safety protocols during the pandemic, online instruction allows us to reach a wider audience, even removing barriers for some patrons who might otherwise not have participated.
At the same time, many of us find it challenging to engage our learners during online instruction, especially with large groups or with patrons who are not as technically savvy.
Through demonstration and hands-on participation, Melissa Wong and Laura Saunders introduce participants to free, low-barrier strategies and tools to incorporate active participation into any online instruction. Participants will leave with a set of tools and specific ideas to lead engaging, interactive sessions.
