Professional Learning Opportunities

​​Instructional Resource Media Associate (IMRA),

Certificate Course of Study

The eight week IMRA Course of Study professional development provides a learning context that interests, excites, and challenges participants to learn effective 21st century library media service practices. We will be using a variety of online learning tools to create an engaging experience during our one face-to-face day together. Our follow-up online format will provide the opportunity for site library-media staff participants to communicate and complete the course assignments.

Participants can expect to spend 4 - 5 hours per week over the course of eight weeks. All of the course assignments will be completed online. The work will include:

  • Reading course materials and exploring examples
  • Completing projects and assignments
  • Sharing and reflecting with other class participants in discussion forums.

School Library Leadership Conference

Personalized Learning is a student-centered approach designed to develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities of students to succeed in college and career.  School libraries play an integral role in this Future Ready movement because everything they do whether it is centered around educational technology, information literacy, collaboration, or promoting a love of reading is in service of the individual student and their personalized learning.

At this one-day event, school library staff, teachers, and administrators will explore how they can:

  • Understand students’ strengths, interests, and needs
  • Create flexible learning environments
  • Connect students to their community and the world
  • Use tools, technology, and data

 The roster of dynamic speakers includes:

  • Candace Fleming, author of The Family Romanov
  • Deborah Ford, Junior Library Guild
  • Eric Rohmann, author/illustrator of My Friend Rabbit
  • Glen Warren, California School Library Association
