The COVID-19 pandemic required many academic librarians to move their instruction online. Though a lot of time is spent discussing Zoom and other virtual meeting tools for synchronous instruction, asynchronous learning or online learning objects have many advantages for accessible and engaging learning experiences. In this first part of a two-part webinar series, UNCG Information Literacy Coordinator Jenny Dale and UNCG Online Learning Librarian Samantha Harlow will focus on the “what” and the “why” of asynchronous learning, including:

  • How asynchronous learning is defined.
  • What the current state of asynchronous learning is in academic libraries.
  • Advantages of creating engaging asynchronous learning for information literacy tutorials or online learning objects.
