Professional Development

Library 2.015 Spring Summit: Free Online Seminar

I wish I had time to attend all of the great free professional development opportunities there are for librarians. Even though I can’t attend them all, maybe you can? So I share them! This one explores future tech trends and has a great list of speakers and panelists. Check it out!

This interactive session on future technology trends will present key issues faced by information professionals and educators. A goal of the Spring Summit is to provide a forum to learn about and discuss ways to prepare for the future, both professionally and organizationally. The 3-part presentation will include:

Part 1: Chasing Storms or Rainbows?

A keynote panel looks at the effects of emerging technologies on current and future learning trends.

Part 2: In the Know

A special session with three topics in succession:

How to plan and fund new technologies with Mary Alice Ball
How to stay up to date with new technologies with Tina Jagersen
A drill down on the key impact areas of new technologies with Samantha Adams Becker
Part 3: The Here and Now

A closing panel discussion on technology and social media trends.
