The Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA) welcomes proposals for professional development courses. The ASCLA Online Learning Committee reviews and approves the proposals. The courses are taught using the Moodle course management software over the course of four to six weeks. Moodle features a chat function to allow for live course sessions in addition to asynchronous coursework. Adobe Connect is also available for live presentation sessions. Instructors for accepted proposals will receive support and training for these technology tools. Attendees are charged a fee to participate in the course and receive a certificate upon completion. The fee includes ongoing access to an archived version of the course. Instructors will be paid a one-time course/curriculum development fee of $1,000 to set up the course initially, and $40 per participant thereafter. The Committee does attempt to consider expected levels of interest when approving online course proposals. Proposals will be accepted through September 23, 2016. Instructors whose proposals are approved will be contacted to offer the course between October 15, 2016 and August 31, 2017.
