Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, ‘Technology Classes at Your Library’, on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
In the past three years, the Iowa City Public Library has tripled their patron involvement in technology classes taught by library staff, without increasing staff or budget. Technology is an ever changing landscape and classes are a great way to help patrons become savvier technology users. Learn how to grow interest in your library’s technology courses with strategies for assessment, marketing, and curriculum development.
Presenter: Jen Eilers, Library Assistant, Iowa City Public Library. Jen organizes and coordinates a team of librarians who teach 4-5 classes a month to adult learners. The classes focus on technology and information literacy skills for the Iowa City Community. She also staffs the information desk and problem solves various patron technology issues through the library’s drop-in tech zone.
