  7. Proposed the collaborative development of ancillary resources (e.g. slide show presentations, lesson plans etc.) to support face-to-face sessions in support of the LiDA micro-courses including, for example:
    • Sessions offered by university and community libraries.
    • Integration of one or more LiDA micro-courses within existing programmes.
  8. Decisions and recommendations
    • The LiDA Community Learning Hub (LCLH) initiative must operate within the existing institutional policies, practices and contexts, for example:
      • at KPU offering online or face-to-face tutoring in collaboration with their learning strategists through the Learning Centre website for registered students,
      • or positioning LiDA as a pre-degree support offering for learners at UTAS,
      • OERF reaching out to community libraries managed by the Dunedin City Council,
      • Incorporating LiDA as a component of faculty development in India, possibly utilizing the government sponsored MOOC platform for local credit recognition.
    • Use the design of the face-to-face sessions to customize the offering for targeted interest groups, eg tourism, architecture etc where learners focus on identifying digital resources for their respective interest areas.
    • Next steps: Establish forum list for LCLH and send email invitation to attendees to join the LCLH group on community.oeru.org.
