Collaborating on Course Design: Part II (North Carolina Library Association)
Does starting an embedded librarian program seem impossible?

CPCC is doing this through sustainable instructional design by partnering with faculty (and others) to develop and implement course-level content that supports course, program, college, and national outcomes. Librarians coordinate with appropriate faculty and collaborate in three main areas: Content, Assignments & Rubrics, and Support. This Webinar is a follow-up to the previous CUS Virtual Conference Webinar panel discussion and will provide attendees with specific tips and examples of how to collaborate with faculty to create content.
