Description

The Alfred C. O’Connell Library gives approximately 240 instructional sessions per year. Approximately 40% of sessions are given to English classes, primarily English 101. Instructional sessions are held in the library’s computer lab, other labs on campus, point-to-point instruction rooms and at our 6 branch campuses. Our true Distance Learning students (currently 11% of Genesee’s student body) did not receive any kind of library instruction until the fall 2006 semester. Genesee offers a class on instructional design to faculty to help them create an online version of the classes they teach which the presenter took in spring 2006. This poster will highlight the information gleaned from that class; show the online instructional materials developed and demonstrate the approach being tried at Genesee with online English 101 classes. Learning module elements such as discussions, PowerPoint files, and a research assignment incorporated into Blackboard will be presented.
