2 Comments

Hooray! I’m excited to announce that on March 25th I will be co-presenting an ALSC Student Session webinar (this means it’s free!) with fellow Joint Chiefs Cory and Amy. We will be talking about the whys and hows of creating your own personal learning network.

This promises to be a good time (we have Ninja Turtle gifs, need I say more?) and educational so we hope you’ll join us! If you can’t make it on the day the webinar will be archived.

Here are the details:

Create a Personal Learning Network That Works For You

Join the Joint Chiefs of the Storytime Underground, an online community for youth services librarians, as we discuss how you can use social media to create your personal learning network, or PLN. We will explore how your PLN can help you meet and collaborate with others in the field as you take charge of your career and professional development.
