In this webinar, school librarians will learn how to take the concept of the physical Learning Commons and apply it to their virtual space. This webinar will provide viewers with an overview of the five elements of a virtual learning commons as outlined by David Loertscher and will show viewers ways to include these elements in their library website. This webinar will feature many free tools to integrate and embed in their existing webspace and help librarians move their library website from a one-way stream of information to a collaborative, interactive space.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Participants will understand the five elements of a virtual learning commons.
  2. Participants will understand the difference between a traditional website and a virtual learning commons, and the advantages and limitations of both.
