Mon, Apr 23, 2018 / 9:00am to 4:30pm

Location: Governors State University, University Park

On April 23, 24, and 26, CARLI will be hosting trainers from the Open Textbook Network (OTN) as they give Train-the-Trainer workshops as part of CARLI’s OTN membership.

The three sessions will have the same content, so those interested should only register for one workshop.

CARLI plans to create an attendee document for those that attend in-person. This will be shared only with those that attend in-person. This will help attendees to identify others that are also working on OER. Please indicate on the registration form if you would prefer to “opt out” and not have your name and email on this document.

Presenters:

  • David Ernst, PhD: Director, Center for Open Education; Executive Director, Open Textbook Network
  • Sarah Faye Cohen: Managing Director, Open Textbook Network

Who should attend:
These sessions are intended for librarians or library staff who plan to give training sessions at their local institutions. The OTN’s Train-the-Trainer workshop will increase participants’ familiarity with the nuances related to the issues around open textbook adoption; strengthen presentation capacity for future open textbook workshops; and enhance open textbook program development.

CARLI members are encouraged to bring with them a local partner be it another librarian or library staff member or someone on their campus also involved with OER including but not limited to instructional designers, faculty or campus staff members involved with local OER efforts, or university administrators.

Registration: Due to expected high interest in these workshops, CARLI is limiting registration to 2 people per CARLI member library.

CARLI will establish a waitlist. 

If registration is not full on March 15, CARLI will open registration to those on the waitlist. Registration will close for all workshops on April 8.

CARLI plans to stream the program on April 24 for those not able to attend in person. The program will NOT be recorded. You do need to register for this option.

CARLI anticipates high interest in these workshops, so registration for the in-person workshops is limited to two people per CARLI member library.  To accommodate all who are interested, CARLI will be streaming the program on April 24.

Disclaimer: The OTN Train-the-Trainers Workshops are best attended in-person as the day long program will include presentations and activities that may not translate well in a streaming environment.   However, as CARLI expects high interest in the workshops and with a registration cap of two in-person attendees per CARLI member library, we hope that providing a streaming option will allow those interested but not able to attend in-person to learn more about this topic.   The CARLI OER Task Force does plan to provide training on this topic in the future.

To register for an in-person workshop, choose one of these sessions:
Register for the April 23 program at Governors State University (9:00 am - 4:30 pm)

Directors Sessions with Anne Craig

Rush University, Chicago, IL

Driving directions

To register, please click on the "Register" tab above. The registration deadline is Friday, April 20.

These “listening sessions” will be informal 90 minute-2 hour sessions. The sessions will offer library directors an opportunity to talk about their library’s challenges and successes. Although the gathering is intended to be very informal, here are some questions that might help frame the day:

  • What are the issues in your library that are keeping you awake at night?
  • Are there one or two specific things that CARLI can do to help address those challenges?
  • Are there opportunities for collaboration that we should be pursuing?
  • Are there opportunities that you see that you can’t take advantage of that maybe CARLI could help you with or leverage for you?
  • Are there best practices that exemplify collaboration and partnership through CARLI that we could share with the rest of the consortium?
  • Is there a program/service that you are conducting that could be leveraged at scale for the rest of the consortium?

Sessions will also be held at Northern Illinois University on March 21 and Illinois Wesleyan University on April 11.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact the CARLI Office.
