How to replicate in-person instruction when
'in-person' just isn't possible.
COVID-19 has changed literally everything, especially how we deliver library/literacy instruction.
Libraries have long been considered 'success hubs' and access to information literacy instruction has a direct impact on student success and retention.
Back in 2016, over 6 million students took at least one online class.2 It's too early to show the 2020 figures, but it's safe to say they were high.
So, with more students learning online than ever before and when libraries are closed or open with limited hours/staff - how can you deliver high-quality information literacy instruction that:
"...the results for eight of the twelve institutions were highly significant indicating that attendance in library training classes is highly associated with student retention in these eight institutions." 1
