Sharing Overabundant Good Teaching/Learning Resources More Effectively Through Small Group Collaboration and Other Methods
An interview with Steven Bell, Associate University Librarian for Research & Instructional Services, Temple U. and ACRL vice-president/president-elect.

Sept 9, 2011 at 2pm ET - free to all.  

Also includes Recap/Extension of TLT Group's Online Symposium 2011 (4th Annual) "Frugal Innovation Through Small Group Collaboration"

During the past two years, especially, there seems to be widespread agreement that the more difficult and important challenge of providing useful teaching/learning resources to faculty is NOT based on scarcity of good stuff. Rather, the challenge is to encourage and enable more faculty to use more effectively the overabundant and often overwhelming flood of good resources.

So instead of succumbing once again to the impulse to build the most complete, best organized, well-purposed new collection (repository or referatory) of high quality resources, we should focus on finding low-threshold, frugal innovations to address the following two fundamental activities that have become more important and challenging than ever before for each of us:

1. Research = Finding good stuff just when we really want and need it... and have good idea of what it must do/be.

2. Browsing = Finding good stuff even before we know that we want or need it - now or ever. Includes really new stuff - so new none of us knows what to do with it immediately.

In this FridayLive! interview, Steve Gilbert and Steven Bell will discuss how we can share more effectively the resources to which faculty, students, and other academic professionals already have access; how can we engage like-minded professionals who have relevant expertise and experience - who are painfully familiar with these needs and willing to share ideas and resources?; what librarians recommend for more effective finding, browsing, research, sharing of such resources?, and more.

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
