Bridge the Divide: Building Academic and High School Librarian Dialogue through a Free Professional Development workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

High school librarians and media specialists stand on an opposite side of the transition to college from academic librarians, and both sides are often unsure about the information literacy and library instructions their students are receiving on the other. Improving communication between the two groups could help first-year college students transition their information literacy and library skills into college. This session will showcase a free professional development workshop at an academic library for high school librarians to create dialogue and share current practices and pedagogy across the two sides of the transition to college.

Participants will:
  • Be able to demonstrate the benefits of outreach to regional high school librarians, media specialists, and school library workers.
  • Be able to formulate a plan for conducting a free high school librarian professional development workshop.
