(Access password: F9LbY^1Z) Working with online learners offers opportunities and challenges for library engagement. However, one of the most important factors in motivating online learners is the development of a community. What does that mean as an academic librarian? Libraries traditionally have a "place" in all courses at varying levels. How can we guide our services to match the needs of an external audience to give them the choices they want at the point of need? How can libraries help foster a community to improve motivation and student learning? In this listen and learn, we’ll quickly overview these motivational factors for online learners and re-frame them in context of librarianship through a discussion of diversified practices for library services designed for online learning that benefit an entire campus. By the end of the presentation, viewers will have a broad understanding of student motivational factors and ideas for how to align library services to meet those needs. This session’s intended audience includes anyone who works within the areas of instruction and programming, particularly those charged with serving both on- and off-campus student populations.
