See You in Ohio! OLC Conference


Hi all! I am heading to Ohio tomorrow of the Ohio Library Council conference. I am doing two talks on Thursday. Hope to see you there! Please say hi!

 

Learning Everywhere: The Transformative Power of Hyperlinked Libraries
Thurs., Oct. 8 | 10:15 a.m.

Emerging technologies are changing the way we live and learn. Libraries can play a key role in this future. Imagine the evolving hyperlinked library as a creation space – community space – anything space. Imagine this library available everywhere via mobile devices and tablets. Imagine opportunities for user learning supported and facilitated by librarians. How will library services change with MOOCs and mobile classrooms in the palm of one’s hand? What skills will staff require? What does the library as creative classroom look like? What does this future look like going forward as we encourage learning everywhere as a means for transformative change for ourselves and our users? This session will explore new ideas and thinking about learning at the library.
