ILU PD Day: Online Tutorial Design Using ULI and DI – Lori Mestre

On December 9 2014, almost 50 library staff (and a sprinkling of CTSI staff) participated in the 2014 PD Day sponsored by the Instruction in Library Use (ILU) Committee.  This year’s guest facilitator was Lori Mestre of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, who led participants through a series of presentations and exercises on how to more creatively and effectively reach students through online tutorials and learning objects.
