Maximizing and Measuring Virtual Programs (PLA)
Recorded May 13, 2020. This on-demand webinar is designed to help libraries develop targeted outcomes to use when designing online programs to maximize the learning opportunities and measure the resulting value of them from attendees.
As libraries are expanding their online efforts in response to COVID-19, library and program outcomes should also shift in order to build the strongest and most impactful instruction. In-person opportunities often bring with them advantages of seeing patrons reactions to learning and subsequent micro-improvements that can be made to improve a program. Without “seeing” a full room, presenters are more limited in their ability to understand how participants are responding. Additionally, there is no longer a home field advantage of an in-person program, and online learning introduces a new set of external factors that could distract participants from taking full advantage of the virtual program.
