[Topic Series: Best Practices in Information Skills Development]


For many organisations, distance learning promises to solve all training challenges. Remote researchers? No space for workshops? Instructors only available at odd hours? No problem.

But if you've made any forays into distance learning, you know that making it effective requires time, patience and expertise. Teaching techniques that are adequate in a face-to-face environment fail utterly in a distance one. Curriculum design requires attention to the advantages and drawbacks of a distance environment. And deep understanding of participants' needs is essential.

This one-hour session will provide you with an overview of what you need to know to start your distance learning programme off on the right foot, or turn a floundering programme into something more successful. With checklists, reference documents and clear how-tos, you'll leave with the resources you need for realising the potential of distance environments to advance the cause of information skills development in your organisation.

Restricted to FreePint Subscribers and registered guests. Included in your FreePint Subscription, but seating is limited.
