ALIA Schools National Online Forum – Commences Wed 29 April 2015

ALIA-SCHOOLS

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.

Regards,

ALIA Schools Committee

  1. Reblogged this on sjrcexchange and commented:
    This is very timely as I commence the AITSL Teacher Librarian Challenge. There has been much online ‘chatter’ this week about disparaging remarks made by presenters at PL sessions regarding school libraries. This is something which needs to be nipped in the bud and some reflection and evaluation of ways of improvement is just the launchpad I need. Looking forward to doing these positive professional activities.

    • Hi Kate,

      There is no official sign up process for our online forums. Participants are free to post whenever and as often as they wish. Our administrator just needs to approve comments which will happen several times during the day.

      Looking forward to having you joining the conversation.

      Regards, ALIA Schools

  2. This is very timely for me as we are in the process of conducting a major review. It is really useful check that we are covering all aspects that we need to. A really comprehensive guide for generating thoughtful analysis of practice and processes.
