Practical Tips and Lessons Learned

Abstract

This case study reports on a pilot project that delivered synchronous online library instruction to incoming students at a large academic institution. Following an overview of the project, the authors report on the results of the project and make hypotheses to account for the low enrollment and attendance rates in the pilot sessions. They also reflect on the experiences of the librarians involved in the project and discuss the possibilities and limitations of synchronous online instruction. They share practical tips and considerations for delivering synchronous online library instruction.
