Program: Online educational spaces by and for librarians

9/5/15 –  Online Educational Spaces by and for Librarians: Best Practices and Models

Join us as we present a program with librarians who have developed free alternative online educational communities to provide professional development to librarians and LIS students whom otherwise wouldn’t be able to access them. The event features three popular online spaces from Latin America and Spain, two of them producing weekly/monthly webinars and one, crowdsourcing publications. Includes best practices and models.
