Rave Reviews for ALSC’s Online Courses

At ALSC we can’t help but be proud of our online education programs. They continue to get rave reviews from students and yet…not everyone knows about them! If you read this blog and you don’t know our online courses by now, we aim to fix that.

Incidentally, registration is open for the Winter 2011 online courses. Courses begin February 7, 2011. Detailed descriptions and registration information is available on the ALSC website. Fees are $95 for personal ALSC members; $145 for personal ALA members; and $165 for non-members.

But really, the best way for us to describe the courses is from the responses we get. Several courses have been reviewed in the past on this blog (like, here and here), but we thought we’d bring a few more quotes for your perusal. These quotes were taken directly from the fall 2010 reviews of our courses. Enjoy!

Information Literacy

“The instructor’s own experience in conducting information literacy courses for several age groups allowed her to give us concrete examples…that helped tremendously.”

“The importance of teaching students information literacy made me more aware of how I help my students. Instead of giving them answers, I now try to help them learn the process necessary to find the answers on their own. I also have become more aware of different teaching techniques that have helped in my program development.”

Newbery Award

“I loved the interchange of ideas.”

”The way the course was designed was masterful. The readings and discussions immersed us in the subject and lead us through the material in a systematic way which inspired new insights and understanding.”

Reading Instruction and Children’s Books

“The instructor was helpful and well organized. Excellent course overall.”

“Not having had training as an elementary teacher, learning the various methods of reading instruction was helpful.”
