March 13th Library 2.0 Mini-Conference "Shaping the Future of Libraries with Instructional Design"

We hope you'll consider joining our first Library 2.019 mini-conference: "Shaping the Future of Libraries with Instructional Design," which will be held online (and for free) on Wednesday, March 13th, from 12:00 - 3:00 pm US-Pacific Daylight Time (click for your own time zone). You can also watch the recordings at any time by signing up.

(We have had an incredible response to this program, but there are no registration limitations, so sign right up! At the bottom of this email is a list of the general sessions that have currently been accepted.)

This is a conference for librarians, instructional designers and educators to share their work and challenges, as well as for those who believe in the value of integrating instructional design into their practice to help them innovate and evolve library services for the future. We invite all library professionals, employers, LIS students, and educators to participate in this event.

This is a free event, being held live online and also recorded.
to attend live and/or to receive the recording links afterward.
Please also join the Library 2.0 network to be kept updated on this and future events.

Instructional Designers, technologists, and online learning specialists are in high demand across all levels of education as it shifts online. In 2004, the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community was established to promote the adoption of instructional design and technology as a vital skill set for librarians seeking to more deeply integrate their teaching and learning initiatives into the curriculum and community. Since then, instructional design and dedicated staff positions to support it, have become more commonplace in and critical to libraries, particularly at colleges and universities, but they are by no means ubiquitous.

This edition of Library 2.019 will bring together the community of librarians, instructional designers and other educators whose work happens at the intersection of instructional design, educational technology, learning, and libraries. This is also a conference for those wanting to learn more about how instructional designers are advancing the educational mission of their libraries and institutions, how the latest innovations in educational technology are being applied in libraries and classrooms, and what we can expect as instructional design and technology transitions from a peripheral to core function within libraries. While the future of libraries may be uncertain and unpredictable, this is an opportunity to explore how library professionals and their colleagues can shape it through the application of instructional design and technology.

Participants are encouraged to use #library2019 and #libraryid on their social media posts leading up to and during the event.
