Collaboration leads to integration: A model for embedding library resources into online learning
MetadataShow full item record
We developed a model for systematic library integration into our online courses. By collaborating with the academic units, program directors, course developers, instructional designers, and the assessment unit, we have created a collaborative approach for including library content in courses from the initial creation of the course. This team approach for the course development process brings together the necessary tools/resources for a successful, robust course to enrich the student learning experience, where the librarians are active participants. This process helps to initiate relationships with faculty before the course is even created, makes use of reliable academic resources and familiarizes the students with the library’s offerings. Our involvement in the course development process has helped to change the perspective of the library and the value we bring to the educational experience.
