Socially Driven Instruction: Developing Learning Encounters Online
Mathews, Brian S.
Journal of Web Librarianship, v3 n3 p273-277 2009
Face-to-face library instruction sessions for academic courses usually have a captive audience because of required attendance, while online sessions for distance learners are often optional. Is it possible to provide such a great online learning encounter that students (both on campus and distance) will choose to attend even an optional session? This article draws on the author's journey in search of that experience.
