CONTACT [log in to unmask]*

Date: September 25, 2013

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Description: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are sweeping the country
and libraries and librarians are watching this development carefully. This
series of four webinars will help librarians gain an understanding of the
complexity of the MOOC “movement,” learn how to support students and
faculty engaged with MOOCs, become familiar with the copyright and
intellectual property requirements in relation to MOOCs, and hear what the
future may hold for MOOCs.

The first webinar, on September 25, 2013 will be presented by Mike
Eisenberg, dean emeritus and professor, University of Washington
Information School, who will set the stage by examining the origins of
online learning and explaining why MOOCs continue to thoroughly capture the
imagination of students, educators, and administrators.

Who should attend? Librarians, library administrators, and library
educators interested in supporting and enhancing libraries’ preparation of
and participation in MOOCs.

Presenter: Mike Eisenberg is the founding dean of the Information School at
the University of Washington, serving from 1998 to 2006. Known as an
innovator and entrepreneur, Mike approached the iSchool as a start-up –
transforming the school into a broad-based information school with academic
programs on all levels and making a difference in industry, the public
sector, and education. Mike’s current work focuses on information and
technology literacy, virtual worlds, and library information and technology
programs, K-20.
