I presented yesterday at the 2015 NEKLS Innovation Day, “Learning @ Your Library: Empowering your community to learn”. It was a new presentation, expanding on the Open Education Resources introductory sessions I’ve led over the last few years for school librarians and teachers.
The presentation focused on the idea that libraries (public, particularly) are the perfect organization to be facilitating learning for all ages, Continue reading “Learning at Your Library presentation”
The following are resources from a presentation given at the 2013 NEKLS Summer School Librarian Workshop. Continue reading “Open Education Resources at the NEKLS Summer School Librarian Workshop”
I presented at the KASL District I workshop today on Open Educational Resources and the Open Web for the School Librarian. This is a slightly revamped version from Tuesday’s presentation at Computers in Libraries in Washington, D.C., and with Gary Price’s permission (my co-presenter there), I have incorporated many of his resources into the presentation. All of the resources (links list, articles, download slides are available on my Open Educational Resources LibGuide). The slides are embedded below.
On Tuesday, I presented without slides during a sunrise session on innovation with Jill Hurst-Wahl and James King. Purposefully presenting without slides for the first time in probably 15 years (dating back to high school, yes), I very briefly spoke about Kansas libraries and the continued innovation that goes on there, because (at least from my perspective) the Kansas library community is open to sharing, collaborating, and working together on initiatives, because many libraries have limited staff, time, financial resources, and collections. This has allowed for a lot of innovation to happen in consortias, open source software deployment, statewide platforms, and ebooks.
At the end of that same day, I presented on Open Educational Resources for the School Librarian as part of the school libraries track. The slides are embedded below. All presentation resources are available here. Gary Price also presented in the session on the same topic, focusing on open web resources and their untapped wealth of potential for educational use. All of his great resources are available on his presentation website. There is huge potential for open education resources to be used at all levels of education (K12; College; Self-Education).
