Proposal Abstract

As courses remained in remote delivery for 2020/21, TRU Subject Librarians were faced with the challenge of taking information literacy asynchronous and online. We needed to find new modes of instruction that not only imparted the necessary concepts but also continued conversations and maintained the connections between students, faculty, and the library, even without our regular class visits. What was surprising was the myriad creative ways that we accepted and succeeded at connecting and teaching students via remote instruction. This presentation will feature three librarians discussing the challenges they encountered this year and demonstrating some of the learning objects now available to TRU students and faculty.

Statement

This presentation relates to the Beyond the Usual: Lemons from Lemonade in COVID theme, because we our creativity resulted in some really successful learning objects and techniques that will be available to the TRU community even after COVID.
