Monday, February 7
Register above to apply for a seat in this asynchronous six-week course.
Monday, February 7 – Sunday, March 20, 2022
Utilizing the Competencies to Boost Skills and Services will be a highly reflective class designed to help participants explore applications of the 2020 Competencies for Librarians Serving Children in Libraries. The course will focus on finding ways to demonstrate competence in the field, strategically plan library service using the competencies, action steps to put new competency-aligned practices into place, and creating artifacts to strengthen professional portfolios. Weekly activities will include assigned readings, discussion posts, and artifact creation. We will focus on one competency section each week, until Week Six, which will combine administrative and management skills with professionalism and professional development.
Due to time constraints, this course will not cover each competency in-depth, but rather will focus on the seven key subject areas. The course should foster consideration of the competencies in professional work and job searching. The course will be designed to offer instructor- and student-led peer learning activities to draw on areas of expertise and to support learners in areas needing development.
This is a six week course run asynchronously, meaning you will never need to login to a class on a certain date/time.
