Designing a Blended Course on Global Librarianship for Delivery to ASEAN Students

Session Description
The presentation describes an academic experience from a cohort of graduate students from five ASEAN countries completing a library science master’s degree with specialization in theological librarianship at a university in central Philippines. Given that the course focuses on global librarianship, the presenter describes and discusses the different elements considered during the design and development process such as audience, objectives, instructional strategies, and outcomes. Also, the presentation discusses how the course design manages the diversity of the student background such as education, prior experience, and literacy skills (e.g., English language, technology). Finally, it discusses how the course was supported by technology to allow for delivery at a distance.
