Teach Yourself How to Program
Leader: Chad Haefele, UNC-Chapel Hill
Programming skills are in demand, but it often seems like an intimidating topic to learn. When we surveyed roundtable members, the number one thing we heard was that you wanted to learn to program. While we can’t quite do that in one short session, we can do the next best thing: teach you how to teach yourself. Many programmers have little or no formal training, and picked it up as they went along instead. You can do that too! We’ll talk about what it’s like to learn to program, provide some guidance on what language to learn, and look at a number of free web-based teaching tools and resources. No prior experience is necessary.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, March 20 at 8am using this link: http://tinyurl.com/tntwebinar2
All webinars will be conducted using Blackboard Collaborate. A link will be sent out to all participants on the morning of March 20.
If you have any questions, email Kathy Shields at kshields[at]highpoint.edu or Jenny Dale at jedale2[at]uncg.edu.

You spoke, we listened! In this spring’s collection of webinars, we’ve done our best to reflect the topics you asked for in our survey last fall. We’ll continue to incorporate these ideas into our future programming efforts.
Coming up later this month:

EBook Training: How to Get StartedLeader: Julie Raynor, High Point Public Library
With all the interest in EBooks recently, have you been wondering about the best ways to teach your community how to use your library’s eBook collection? And what about the best ways to train staff so they can assist patrons with eBook questions confidently? This webinar will cover the approach that the High Point Public Library took in doing both of these. The techniques involved can be adapted to any size public library or customized for academic library settings.
Please RSVP by Tuesday, February 26 at 5pm using this link: http://tinyurl.com/avyslqm
