Reference Librarian Ruth Torstenson LeMasters opened the session with a demonstration of new library resources designed to enhance online learning. CREDO, an online reference and discovery database, as well as LibGuides, a content management system that enables librarians to create user friendly online Research Guides were  highlighted.

Dr.Lori Charron, Communication, and Dr. Elizabeth Seebach, Psychology, followed with a presentation of their work with online Lasallian pedagogy. Using the Lasallian 12 Virtues of a Good Teacher as a framework, the two presented ideas about how to interpret these virtues for the online environment.  Attendees were divided into groups to work with the principles and were encouraged to come up  with more ideas and concerns regarding this transformational process.
