Librarians in all law libraries need to educate and train their users, whether it is on performing cost-effective legal research as new associates, introducing them to the library’s resources, or showing them how to use a new database. This panel session will include practical examples of how librarians currently utilize different technologies and tools to engage their students, faculty, staff, or attorneys in new and innovative ways. The speakers will showcase their use of web 2.0 technologies, including social media (YouTube, Pinterest, Twitter) and other apps (Haiku Deck, Unstuck, Reflector) to provide attendees with the direct know-how to implement and benefit from new and emerging tools.
Takeaway 1: Participants will learn how they can utilize different technologies to enhance their teaching and training offerings.
Takeaway 2: Participants will assess the varied technologies currently available and determine which are suitable for their environment.
Takeaway 3: Participants will acquire a list of technologies to use as a guideline when deciding how to enhance their teaching and training programs.
Who should attend: Any librarian interested in, new to, or already responsible for teaching and/or training in their institution
