Lessons Learned from the Online LIB100 Pilot

The library offers a very popular and useful credit-based research class, LIB100: Accessing Information in the 21st Century. This elective supports students’ success at Wake Forest by teaching research skills, the use of library materials, ethical use of information and how to navigate the changing information environment.

This fall, the library began exploring online education with two experimental sections of LIB100. These classes intentionally preserved close interaction between students and the instructor, while also ensuring that students participated fully and met all the learning outcomes. The library will host a forum on Tuesday, February 7, at 3:30 p.m. in the ZSR auditorium to share course structure, instructor perceptions and student feedback.

To see one initial response, please view this video from a student who commented both on the class itself and the teaching methodology. (The comments specifically about the online methodology begin at 2:35.)
