OERs and MOOCs in User Education and In-service Training - The Right Recipe for Library Innovation

Within the X-LIBRIS project a series of workshops will be organized. One of the main goals of these workshops is to find out what librarians (both current and future) need to learn and which skills they need to develop to be able to create OERs and MOOCs for their users. Second goal is to find out about how they like to learn as being the subject of in-service training programs. Third goal is to provide librarians with first hand experience on how to explore users’ needs by the use of innovative methodologies such Lego® Serious Play®, Hero’s Journey, Gamification, Business Model YOU® , Storytelling, Crowdfunding and Design Thinking to be able to realize user-centered design. Last goal is to explore how to use smart ICT in designing both user education services and in-service training. Key ingredients of the X-LIBRIS recipe are user-centered service design, use of smart ICT and innovation.
