The first national professional development activity for the year will be an online forum to be held from Wednesday 29 April until Wednesday 6 May. The topic is: Unpacking the School Library Resource Centre guidelines for self reflection and evaluation.
At the recent ALIA Schools half day seminar in Melbourne, participants were witnesses to the launch of the School Library Resource Centre guidelines for self reflection and evaluation. This document, jointly produced by ALIA Schools and the Victorian Catholic Teacher Librarians, was prepared to assist schools with reviewing their school library. The document is available at https://www.alia.org.au/sites/default/files/ALIA%20Schools%20SLRC%20Guidelines%20final%20version.PDF
Over the course of the eight days of the online forum, we will explore the reasons why the school library should be reviewed, unpack each section of the document and identify how you can plan and implement a full or partial review of your school library.
To join the online forum you will need to access our blog at https://aliaschools.wordpress.com Registration is free. We look forward to your active participation as we gain a nationwide perspective on why and how the school library needs to be part of the school’s continuous cycle of improvement.
