How to future proof your job

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

This seminar “School Libraries Making a Difference: What is your evidence, and how do you get it?” could save your job and those of your fellow teacher librarians. Register now!

In this current environment where principals are cutting back on library budgets and staffing numbers, accountability and evidence based practices has become virtually compulsory to ensure that not only will students continue to benefit from the presence of professionally trained librarians but also that the role of teacher librarian does not become extinct.

Greg Lindorff, President of AISWA Libraries Inc. and teacher librarian at Christ Church Grammar in Perth, attended this same seminar in Sydney last year and has since shared the impact of the day with us:

“Before going to Sydney to attend the same seminar I used to find EBP an enormous "chore", and one that I was trying to ignore. Ross Todd and Lyn Hay are the "go to" people in the field of EBP.

I came away from the Sydney seminar with:

  • The realisation that EBP was relatively easy to implement, and that in many cases all I needed to do was tweak what I was currently doing;

  • A better understanding and practical knowledge of EBP;

  • Simple and easily implementable strategies that worked; and

  • Access to a network of library professionals (including Ross and Lyn) for advice and assistance.”

The “School Libraries Making a Difference: What is your evidence, and how do you get it?” seminar is accredited by the NSW Institute of Teachers and will be held in the following locations:

David Linke from Ed Alliance is the Major Sponsor at all three seminars. He believes strongly in the message that school libraries make a difference!

We hope you can join us!
