Registration Now Open: David Lankes Will Be Instructor for New Librarianship University’s iSchool | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

The School of Information Studies (iSchool) has opened registration for its second massive open online course (MOOC), the New Librarianship Master Class.  The MOOC will examine librarianship and library practice using the fundamental concept that knowledge is created through conversation.

 

Lankes’ book, The Atlas of New Librarianship, will serve as the text for the course, which will feature Lankes and three other iSchool faculty members (Jill Hurst-Wahl, Megan Oakleaf and Jian Qin) as instructors and moderators. MIT Press will provide participants in the course with a 20% discount on the book.

 

The course is available for free online, and begins on July 8. Participation in the course can also lead to Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for an additional fee, or graduate academic credit with additional work and tuition.

 

To register for the MOOC, visit the New Librarian Master Class web page.

The librarian community looks slightly different on each social media platform depending on the users, capabilities of the platform, and how engaged its users are. I'm addicted (in a professional way) to Twitter.
