Submerged librarians living in a virtual world: embedded effort builds on instructional collaboration

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

When our campus closed and moved to all remote instruction in Spring 2020, we had to react without pre-planning. During the summer of 2020, as we worked to prepare for the 2020-2021 academic year, we built upon our experiences from the Spring as we considered how to best support the students and faculty in a HyFlex (hybrid online and face to face) teaching environment for the fall; it seemed an easy decision to develop a pilot for embedded librarians. Working with the campus Office of Digital Learning and Instructional Design Services, librarians fine-tuned the services we wanted to highlight in eClass, our campus learning management system. As faculty signed up for the opportunity to have a librarian embedded in their eClass, librarians reached out and collaboratively developed lessons, learning activities, and resources for these courses. Faculty expressed positive impressions from their experiences in the Fall, which we incorporated into the Spring 2021 program. This session will highlight what we learned from our pilot, and how we plan to move forward for the 2021-2022 academic year.
