Abstract

Stepping into e-Learning: An Area and International Studies Librarianship Course Goes Online at Indiana University

In the spring of 2016, the Area Studies Department of the Indiana University Libraries taught a semester long, online graduate level seminar, entitled Area and International Studies Librarianship. This collaboratively taught course is the outcome of a recognized national need for training for new area studies librarians. The department taught the course for the first time in 2015, but transitioned to the online format in order to make the course available to a broader student audience. In the transformation from in-person to online, the department faced multiple challenges, from incorporating international collaborators, to facing new instructional technologies. Throughout the experience, the six-person group of co-instructors relied on their strong history of collaboration and a pedagogy directed at actively engaging students and individualized study.
