Apologies for cross-posting. Please share as appropriate.

Most of the classes listed below are four weeks in length, with a price of $175.

We accept registrations through the first week of class (unless
enrollment is full and unless it was canceled before it started due to
low enrollment).

their schedules allow.

Transforming Your Teaching Toolkit

Some fun facts about us: Since starting in October of 2012, we have
taught 392 classes to students located in 49 different countries.
After discontinuing a number of courses, we currently have 110 of them
on the books, approximately two thirds of which are scheduled for
teaching over the next six months. There are currently between 4000
and 5000 users in the course management system.

While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of
foundations, we focus on the kinds of skills that library schools
generally expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually
turn out to require additional study. These workshops earn Continuing
Education Units, and are intended as professional development
activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can
participate as your own schedule allows.
