Abstract

The aim of this article is to discuss the introduction of webinars as an additional way to teach information literacy alongside face-to-face lectures, inductions, workshops and one-to-one meetings at the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at Canterbury Christ Church University. A changing student population with a growing number of part- time students and distance learners challenges the traditional methods of providing IL teaching. Academic librarians are called upon to develop new ways to reach these students and to familiarize them with online library services. Amongst others (such as on-demand recordings or the use of social media), webinars are one option to achieve this goal. Based on evaluation data from 22 webinars with 181 students participating, the article focuses on technical aspects of synchronous online teaching and on student and staff experience.
