Did you know that ASERL frequently offers high quality, timely topic webinars to its members for free? I bet you did – but that doesn’t mean a friendly reminder of all that’s on tap for this fall isn’t in order!
Webinar topics come from all different sources. John Burger, Director of ASERL, and the Scholarly Communication Interest Group co-chairs, Melanie Kolawski and Molly Keener, brainstorm ideas that might be of interest or importance to our members, looking to conference presentations, social media conversations, professional literature, and colleagues for inspiration. We welcome suggestions from our ASERL colleagues, either to share exciting work you are pursuing, or to learn more about a topic of interest to you. So don’t be shy about sharing your ideas!
If your semester schedule is anything like mine, it is filling up fast. Knowing about all the great webinars from ASERL, and specifically about those with a scholcomm focus, is critical for ensuring that I don’t miss out on these upcoming learning opportunities.
