We’re pleased to announce details of our October PD webinar introducing online learning tools for librarians.
Michelle Clarke from K&L Gates and Anastasia Stepanovic from the University of Melbourne will share their knowledge of Kahoot! and Padlet, two free platforms that have helped them create engaging online content for library users.
Thursday 7 October 1pm
(NOTE: This event is open to ALLA members only, please have your membership number with you when you register.)
As online learning replaces face to face library sessions, librarians may find themselves looking for affordable options to create interesting course content. In this session two experienced librarians share their knowledge of Kahoot! and Padlet.
Kahoot! is a widely used cloud-based tool to create and deliver teaching and testing quizzes. It’s used in educational institutions as an online game-based learning platform and includes a free component. In this online session Michelle Clarke from K&L Gates will take you through a practice Kahoot! before showing the software’s back end functionalities available to content creators. Just come along and have your mobile or other internet enabled device with you to participate.
Padlet is a free collaborative web platform that enables instructors and participants to upload, organise, and share content to virtual bulletin boards (padlets) in real time. Users can post notes with links, videos, images and document files, enabling virtual collaboration and transforming the way feedback can be obtained from training sessions.
Anastasia Stepanovic from the University of Melbourne, will demonstrate the Padlet platform, showing you the benefits of incorporating it in your work environment.
We hope you can join us,
