Workshop Title:
Topics and Trends to Empower Learners in 21st Century Libraries

Time: 9:00 AM to Noon

Date: Sunday, April 17, 2011

Presenter: Audrey Church, Ph.D.

Workshop Description:  In this workshop, we will explore twelve topics, grounded in the principles of AASL's 2009 Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Programs and critically important to 21st century school librarians:

AASL Standards in for the 21st Century Learner in Action


Assessment—Student Learning

Assessment—Library Program

Common Core State Standards


Evidence-Based Practice


Learning Commons


Professional Dispositions


For each topic, at least three good resources (free Web site, journal article, and book) will be shared. After discussion of each topic, participants will do a quick self-assessment of their program in this area. (Where am I now? Where do I want/need to be?)

Following discussion of the twelve topics, participants will select one that they plan to address when they return to school later in the week and construct a brief action plan to move forward in this area.

Target audience: All

Maximum attendees: 25
