She is also the library's webmaster. She is currently working towards a Master's in Instructional Science and Technology at California State University, Monterey Bay.


Strategies for Supporting Online Education: 

Embedding Libraries in Course Management Systems

The library’s online resources are a crucial component of the evidence needed by institutions to meet accreditation standards II.A. Instructional Programs and II.B Library and Learning Support Services, particularly in regard to providing comparable instructional support services to distance education students. This workshop is about the ways in which the library can be a presence in the course management system, course plan or assignments, and the curriculum approval process. Through discussion, ideas, exchange, and small group work time, participants will develop actionable ideas they can take back to their campus. 


Equity Discussion Facilitator:


     Dan Crump is Public Services Librarian at American River College.  Dan has been active at the state level for decades, including many years of service on the Executive Council of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges.  Dan will leverage his expertise on state policy and legislation to provide background on the Student Equity Plan.


Asserting Library Resources in the Student Equity Plan

Is your library involved in your campus’ Student Equity Plan? Participants of last fall’s workshop wanted concrete ideas they could take back to their campus, and they wanted more discussion and work time on how to increase the library’s presence in their local SEP.  This workshop focuses on developing actionable ideas that library leaders may assert for inclusion in the next iteration of the Student Equity Plan (SEP), due in the Chancellor’s Office on November 23, 2015.
