Debbie Abilock of NoodleTools, and Susan Smith, of Harker School, San Jose, California will conduct a professional development workshop at Georgia International Information Literacy Conference on September 21, 2012:
In this era of unprecedented school reform and budget cuts, librarians can survive and thrive as embedded professional development (PD) leaders. We will discuss several PD models from our new book Growing Schools: Librarians as Professional Developers and explore together how we can use information literacy to improve our schools from the inside out. Participants will develop a plan for taking the first “baby step” (or maybe another step) toward becoming a teacher of teachers in their schools.
At an ALA preconference session last June, Debbie and Susan also talked about professional development. Handouts from this session are available at http://noodle.to/pd.
