Proceedings of the Association for Library and Information Science Education Annual Conference: ALISE 2018: The Expanding LIS Education Universe
Association for Library and Information Science Education Annual Conference: ALISE 2018, February 6-9, 2018, Denver, Colorado
Online instruction and programming have expanded the universe of LIS education but have also expanded the needs of online students for assistance navigating institutional structures and requirements. With 24-7 access to coursework, accounts, and the university website, students expect prompt answers to questions through electronic or e-advising. From recruitment to alumni relations, LIS programs and their universities are seeking to expand how they reach distance students in online programs. We will share innovative uses of technology and staffing for e-advising along with what online students have told us in a survey about the kinds of advising they need and expect.
