Building Best-In-Class Learning In a Pandemic

Course Description 

Join innovative librarians and educators as they showcase lessons learned from teaching in the ever-shifting landscape of in-person, hybrid, and all-remote learning. Educators who have been at the forefront of creative digital learning for years will share best practices for remote and hybrid learning. This course offers tools and solutions that you can use to meet diverse learning needs, during the pandemic and beyond. 

In the accompanying small group workshop, you’ll develop your own dynamic project-based plan to authentically engage students and combat learning loss, under the guidance of a veteran librarian who will coach you through the process. You’ll come away with new ideas and actionable plans to help engage students in the new world of blended-learning. 


  • Create a plan of action for how to engage your students through hybrid, distance, or in-person learning

  • Learn best practices for collaborating with colleagues to design and deliver curriculum and programming to your students 

  • Develop an understanding of project-based learning and how to apply it to your library curriculum

  • Access a digital and virtual learning toolkit to use for years to come, whether you’re working with students in-person or remotely

  • Generate program ideas for your library based on models of successful blended learning

  • Compile tools and resources to revamp your curriculum


Inspiring Live Guest Speakers + Project-Based Learning

Engage with presenters via live video stream, visual presentations, and chats, and workshop practical solutions in groups, with guidance from an advisor, to map out your own plan to fit your library needs.
