What will you do when you find yourself unexpectedly speaking with your institution’s provost or president for a few minutes? Skip the awkward small talk, and instead, discuss how to reduce student costs and increase student retention through the use of Open Educational Resources (OERs) in the library and classroom. Join Brad Ost, Head of Reference Services and the Theology, Religion and Philosophy Librarian at Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, for a conversation about and some practice in advocating for OERs to your institutional leadership.
Elevator-Pitch webinars offer the opportunity to learn about how to advocate for your library to higher education administrators who may be unfamiliar with its services. These informal practice sessions combine a short presentation with the chance for practice. You’ll leave the session with concrete ideas of what to say on behalf of your library the next time you have the opportunity to say it!
This event is sponsored by the Professional Development Committee and will be recorded.
