Keep in mind that providing library instruction to online students can take many forms, including voice over Power Point slide shows, online tutorials, short videos, synchronous instruction via Zoom or WebEx, and many others. Remember, if you don't feel comfortable using a particular technology for library instruction, pick one or two options that work for you and proceed from there.
Below you'll find some recommended tools for providing instruction as well as suggestions for using them most effectively.
Keep in mind that, no matter the online mode of instruction, you'll want to gather as much information from your the faculty member as you can. For synchronous instruction, you'll want to know how many students will be joining, how the material will be shared, how students will access the class, and what the faculty member's expectations are for the session. For asynchronous instruction, you'll want to know which concepts and/or resources the faculty member wants you to explain, how the students will access the content, and what the faculty member's expected outcomes are.
Following is a list of instruction modes with suggestions for using each one.
Remember, you can always flip the classroom!
