Join ACRL-Oregon for a free webinar – “Improving Library Tutorials: The Multimedia Design Principles”

ACRL-Oregon offers free webinars on topics relevant to academic library staff. Our upcoming webinar is “Improving Library Tutorials: The Multimedia Design Principles” and will be presented by Darlene Aguilar, Instructional Design Librarian at Loyola Marymount University, on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific.

Are you creating online modules, videos, or tutorials to teach information literacy skills?

Whether designing instruction online or in-person, you must implement research-based instructional methods for successful learning to occur, and Mayer’s Multimedia Design Principles are the best place to start. In this session, you will better understand the relationship between memory and learning to differentiate between effective and ineffective multimedia with the guidance of 12 principles: multimedia, spatial contiguity, temporal contiguity, coherence, modality, redundancy, individual differences, signaling, pacing, concepts first, personalization, and human voice.

Join us for this live webinar to ensure your questions get answered and you are able to apply these principles in your own tutorials.

Registration is open to any library staff-person, but we are limited to 100 attendees in the session, so register soon! 

https://forms.gle/GP1djZqJ11YCDNFD6

We also plan to record the webinar and make it available on our YouTube channel. If you register, we will email you a link to the recording after the session. Questions about our webinars can be directed to ACRL-Oregon President Candise Branum at acrlor@olaweb.org

 

Join ACRL-Oregon for a free webinar – What is quantitative data good for?

ACRL-Oregon offers free webinars on topics relevant to academic library staff. Our upcoming webinar is “What is quantitative data good for? Throwing great big noisy fusses about white colonial power structures.  *An ode to Ramona Quimby” and will be presented by M. Brooke Robertshaw, PhD, Assistant Professor and Assessment Librarian at Oregon State University on Thursday, January 30th, 2020, at 10am Pacific.

If you don’t know Ramona Quimby, through this presentation you will learn a bit more about her.  If you do know her, you know she is  all about justice and fairness, but sometimes context needs to be changed so we can get to that space of justice. Thus, this webinar will discuss how, as a society, we got to a space where we are using quantitative methods as a tool of oppression, how we can rethink these uses, and ways to think about research as activism. Data, like Ramona’s rain boots, should be shown off, but it’s much prettier when we can rinse off some of the muck of white patriarchal colonialism.

Registration is open to any library staff-person, but we are limited to 100 attendees in the session, so register soon!
