ALCTS Webinar Series: Libraries and MOOCs > February 20014 > June 2014


Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are sweeping the country and libraries and librarians are watching this development carefully. This series of four webinars will help librarians gain an understanding of the complexity of the MOOC movement, learn how to support students and faculty engaged with MOOCs, become familiar with the copyright and intellectual property requirements in relation to MOOCs, and hear what the future may hold for MOOCs.
  • February 26, 2014. Dorothy Pawlowski will discuss opportunities for public libraries to promote lifelong learning by becoming meet-up destinations for MOOCs.
  • March 26, 2014. Curtis L. Kendrick and Irene Gashurov will look at how librarians can shape the conversation about changes created by MOOCs.
  • May 21, 2014. Rebecca Griffith will look at new research on opportunities and challenges associated with using third-party MOOCs in campus-based services.
  • June 4, 2014. Sarah Bardac will look at the roles, opportunities, and pitfalls of MOOCs.
