Abstract


Chapter 2 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 55, no. 4), “Librarians as Online Course Designers and Instructors,” edited by Lucy Santos Green

Chapter 2 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 55, no. 4), “Librarians as Online Course Designers and Instructors,” is for librarians seeking to improve learning outcomes among adult learners in online settings by fostering community. To do this, we introduce readers to recognized community-focused frameworks and concepts.

In doing so, we aim to support the librarian instructor in being not only a director of content, but also a facilitator of engaged learning.
