Steven Bell and John Shank, co-founders of the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community and their guests, Josh Kim and Barbara Knauff, invite you to join the next webcast, “Becoming an Educational Change Agent” On Thursday, May 21, 2009 at 3 pm. EDT.
In this session, we'll explore the changing role of academic teaching and learning "support" staff. How has it evolved over the past decade, and where are our job descriptions going? How much of our work is reactive, and how much of is advocacy for changes in instructional paradigms? How are the roles between instructional designers and librarians demarcated, and where are they beginning to shift or merge? Is learning technology itself an emerging academic discipline? We'll begin with a brief presentation on these issues by Josh Kim and Barbara Knauff, Senior Learning Technologists at Dartmouth College (see their recent Educause Review column on these issues, "Business Cards for the Future", but the majority of the session will be given over to a participant discussion of these issues
