Last year we surveyed our members about the type of Professional Development you’d like. The results were overwhelming - 80% of respondents wanted PD about online tools, well ahead of every other category in the survey.
SLANZA’s professional development team have been working on ways to meet this need with PD that is not expensive or too time consuming, and we’re very pleased to announce Level 1 of our online PD initiative “SLANZA Connected Librarians”.
In this course you will learn about a selection of online tools to use and to share with your school community. Topics include professional reading, social bookmarking, community connections, and more.
This course is designed by New Zealand school librarians, for school librarians - those just starting out with online tools, who are ready and willing to try new things.
The course is free for SLANZA members. Registrations are open now, but places are limited to the first 15 registrations; those people will receive their invitation to our learning community in Week 2 of Term 2, and the course begins in Week 3 of Term 2.
More information about the course, including online registration, is available here.
