The American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T), which has national chapter locations, also has a home right here in Louisiana at the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at LSU. ASIS&T encourages both members and non-members to attend the webinar on August 23, 2012 called Bringing the Art of Performance to Online Teaching. The webinar is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection, and will go from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm (EDT).
The purpose of the webinar is to show online teachers the simple strategies for presenting material and engaging audiences by using the art of performance. Attendees will learn the best practices for bringing a classroom persona to an online environment, as well as learning proper delivery of ideas through expression, symbols, and pictures. Dr. Charles Curren will be the presenter at the webinar. He is a recently retiree that formerly worked at the University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science. Curren has decades of experience in public, school, and academic libraries. He also has been teaching since 1974, with a focus on SLIS.
