Synchronous online library instruction — classes delivered live via Zoom, Webex, or other conferencing platforms — have become much more common in the past year, but most of us never learned in library school how to approach this teaching format. This session will help your live online classes become a little less nerve-wracking: learn how to take advantage of the live online classroom environment, discuss some advantages and limitations compared to the in-person classroom, and how to make the most of your time with students.
