No sessions are currently scheduled for this event. To request a new session, please contact


Asynchronous teaching -- delivering instruction via guides, pre-recorded video, message boards and other self-guided on-demand methods -- can be a great way to reach busy students and integrate the librarian into an existing online class. Join us for this session that examines the best ways to take advantage of the asynchronous instructional format, what you need to know about how asynchronous online learning differs from in-person, classroom-based instruction, and tools to help make the most of asynchronous teaching.

Identify advantages and disadvantages of asynchronous instruction
Adapt an instruction plan for asynchronous teaching
