2007 Summer Workshop


Friday, July 27, 2007
L. W. Nixon Library
Butler Community College
901 S. Haverhill Rd.
El Dorado, KS 67402


Overview: K-LIRT’s 2007 Summer Workshop is actually three separate workshops: a podcasting workshop, a My Space and Facebook workshop, and a Second Life workshop. Each of these three workshops will be offered two times: once in a morning session from 10:00 a.m. to Noon and again in an afternoon session from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. This means that each attendee will be able to attend two of the three workshops. Although different in their topic, each workshop will be similar in purpose: to get you started using the technology, in a guided, hands-on instructional session.

Intended Audience: Anyone who provides (or is interested in providing) formal or informal library or information literacy instruction to elementary, high school, or college students.

Contact Hours: A total of 4 contact hours divided into two sessions, each two hours in length.

Format: Each workshop will involve hands-on, guided instruction and will take place in an electronic classroom. Participants will work on a computer individually or in pairs.

NOTE: If you have a laptop equipped with a wireless card, please bring it with you.
