We are pleased to announce that registrations for the fourth round of SLANZA’s online professional development course - Connected Librarians - will open next Monday, May 19th. Because we have a waiting list for course places, there are currently only 10 places available.
In order to ensure that our participants come from a range of school levels (primary, intermediate and secondary) we will select people from the registration list accordingly. Because Term 2 is somewhat shorter than normal, successful applicants will receive invitations to our learning community during Week 3, and the course will begin in Week 4.
If your registration is accepted, it is essential that you ensure you have access to Google Plus using the email account you have registered with, before the course starts.
The Connected Librarians course is designed by New Zealand school librarians, for school librarians. It is aimed at those just starting out with online tools in their library. Participants will be required to sign up for, and use a selection of 6 online tools (1 new tool each week). Each week’s work contains background readings and/or videos, tasks to complete using that week’s tool, and participation in discussions to share and reflect on your learning for the week.
The course is free for SLANZA members.
More information about the course is available here, or you can contact me directly with any questions.
