Weer een MOOC, maar nu over de hyperlinked library! Aangeboden door Michael Stephens van de School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) van San José State University in Californië. Stephens is uiteraard geen onbekende in bibliotheekland (publicaties ; blog Tame The Web; Twitter).
The term “Hyperlinked Library” describes how our connected world is transforming 21st Century libraries into participatory, playful, and user-centered spaces while upholding traditional values. It encompasses both physical and virtual space, as well as many types of libraries.
The Hyperlinked Library MOOC will examine various participatory theories of library service, the impact of emerging technologies on libraries, and the growing focus on a creation/curation culture. Students will explore the definition of participatory service, some key trends that impact the Hyperlinked Library model, and examine what the shift means for libraries and information work in today’s digital information age.
Students will experience an interactive online learning environment via a wide range of tools and diverse materials (e.g., freely accessible readings, recorded presentations from practitioners, and online videos). Students will be encouraged to explore these resources and engage with peers and instructors, heightening their learning and taking full advantage of this professional development opportunity.
SJSU SLIS assistant professor Michael Stephens developed and created the Hyperlinked Library course over the last few years, drawing on experiences working with libraries located across North America and internationally, including Germany, Australia, Turkey, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. He will pull in global experts and resources as part of the Hyperlinked Library MOOC learning experience.
Start op 3 september en de cursus duurt 12 weken. Echt massive zal het niet worden, want de inschrijving is beperkt tot de eerste 400 aanmelders.
Dus waar wacht je op?
P.S. ik ben je al voor geweest… 😉
