Fall 2010 - online courses

NEW! 
Engaging Adult Learners: Strategies for Information Professionals <http://www.plc.ischool.utoronto.ca/coursedescription.asp?courseid=257> (replaces: Information Professional as Educator)
Mon. 1 Nov 2010 - Fri. 10 Dec 2010
6 Weeks (18 hours) 
Instructor: Rebecca Jones
Fee: $445.00 


An essential course for Consultants and information professionals (librarians, records and information managers, archivists, museum professionals, legal and health researchers, etc.), IT professionals and those who currently or will in the near future train adults to “do” or “know” or “use” something; this includes those educating students in post-secondary environments.


Those working in information-intensive organizations are increasingly helping clients or colleagues learn to “use” or “do” something. Life-long learning isn’t just a slogan, it’s critical for all adults in their jobs, or finding a job, or expanding their personal or professional options. Information professionals, with their specialized knowledge of all types of content, tools, images, the Internet and processes, are well placed to play key roles as learning leaders.
This six week course guides you through the whole training process, from assessing learning needs of the targeted learners to selecting the right delivery method (face-to-face? E-learning? Blended?), to designing an engaging program, whether it’s an hour or multi-week. Working with the instructor and other students, you learn and practice strategies for making learning for adults interactive and relevant and gaining decision-maker support for learning programs. 


“I would recommend this course to any trainer. When one is working full-time it is nearly impossible to attend a F2F course on a schedule. I found the content very helpful and I learned a lot that will help me in my daily work. It's also a great value for a professional course"

I still need to practice some things to get them right but I now have a lot of tools to work with that most people don't even know exist and I am able to search for information for some of my colleagues with more results than before."

Taxonomy Guide: Online Resource & Learning Tool  <http://www.plc.ischool.utoronto.ca/coursedescription.asp?courseid=33>
1 year subscription
Fee: $199.00 

Enterprises are increasingly turning to taxonomies to navigate through structured and unstructured information dispersed through the organization. Taxonomies, based on classification, controlled terms, and assigned metadata, provide the topical views for representing and navigating an organization's knowledge resources on a network. 
The Taxonomy Guide is a web resource of organized, structured, and clearly written content on building and implementing an enterprise taxonomy. The Guide is both a learning tool and a reference resource designed to help you master the concepts, relationships and essential steps for taxonomy design and project planning. 
The Guide consolidates and improves the usability of information about taxonomies that is typically fragmented and dispersed and, in many cases, difficult or expensive to acquire. 

You may register at any time throughout the year; your subscription fee covers access to The Taxonomy Guide for 12 months from date of registration. You can renew your subscription for as long as you wish in order to keep up-to-date in this rapidly developing area.
