Title:A Hybrid Approach to Undergraduate LIS Instruction: A Case Study of Organization of Online Course Information
Author(s):Roberts, Sarah T.
Subject(s):Undergraduate LIS education
hybrid course
information organization
online collaborative tools
Abstract:Hybrid courses, a combination of online/asynchronous and inclass/ synchronous learning, are relative newcomers among the different types of course delivery options available to instructors. Along with them comes the need to develop and organize online course materials to ensure student participation and success with the online component, usually fully 50% of the course. A concurrent recent development is the movement to reintroduce classes in Library and Information Studies/Science (LIS) directed toward undergraduates, of which this course was one. This poster captures one such attempt at piloting and delivering a hybrid course in the field of Library and Information Studies by graphically showcasing the different online elements utilized in the course, their development and organizational implementation. It then offers analysis, provides a discussion of relevant theoretical notions and frameworks useful for contextualizing the observations made, and suggest several areas of and possibilities for future inquiry.
