The ULS Academic Outreach Committee offers a series of Online Roundtable Discussions on topics related to academic outreach endeavors.
The next week of discussions begins April 4th. Each discussion will last 1 hour and be limited to 9 participants and 1 facilitator (like a face-to-face roundtable discussion).
April’s Topic: Outreach Programming for Student Orientations
This month’s discussion will focus on how libraries approach various orientation activities. We will talk about new student and transfer orientations typically held in the summer as well as the myriad of activities offered to welcome students back in the fall. Come prepared to talk about what you’re doing, share programming ideas, successes and lessons learned, and discuss the logistics of specific events. Join us for a lively discussion and leave with great ideas for future programming.
All discussions will be hosted on Google Hangouts on Air. The sessions will be recorded and posted to the ACRL ULS Academic Outreach Committee YouTube Channel. Past discussions are posted there now.
