Online learning opportunities surround us, yet many of us remain skeptical about whether webinars, courses, and other online learning opportunities can offer us anything meaningful. Furthermore, we are often overwhelmed by the amount of work we have to do, and we find that learning is pushed aside as a “luxury” rather than being prioritized as the essential part of our work that it is.

Join us for this interactive one-hour webinar presented by ALA Publishing eLearning Solutions and Infopeople that explores online workplace learning, the role it plays in fulfilling your library’s mission, and ways to easily and effectively incorporate it into your daily routine in ways that serve you, your library, and the library users who benefit from what you provide.

By the end of the webinar, you should be able to:

  • Describe the importance of connecting individual professional learning to organizational goals.
  • List at least three ways to immediately begin incorporating online learning into your daily work routines.
  • Overcome common obstacles to effective online learning
  • Identify resources for online learning (webinars, courses, etc.)

This webinar will be of interest to: All levels of library staff

Pre-webinar Assignment: Sometime prior to the webinar, watch the following YouTube video regarding motivation -- Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. Think about your own motivation for workplace learning and be prepared to discuss it. We’ll build on this discussion in the webinar.
