Professional Development in the School Librarian world


I was given a link to eSurveyspro as an alternate to Zoomerang and I thought I would test it out by creating a survey to collect data from school librarians worldwide on their preferred professional development options. If you would like to participate in this survey, you can visit the link here School Librarian Professional development survey. It will close on August 7 at midnight GMT.

I am not affiliated with any company, this is for my interest as I launch into professional development for librarians in the IB world. I will be publishing the results on this blog. The survey is completely anonymous - not even IP addresses will be collected. Would love to have as many people to participate as possible to test surveyspro, so please send the link onto others who are in the field.

I will also do a post on conceptual learning for the library shortly.

Thanks Dianne. Your survey made me think about my PD needs. My husband works in a public library and was told recently that TLs in public schools would probably disappear in the next 10 years. I look forward to the results of the survey.

A fabulous initiative and the results will be very interesting I am sure! I look forward to seeing them here. The whole position of School Librarians around the world is tenuous and most feel very insecure at this time. PD is vitally important to our sustaining the viability of our changing roles both publically and within schools. I was told just this week that my main role was that of reading materials provider and reading faciltiator! And this in a High School! Frustrating to say the least!
