2019 AASL National Conference

Using Collaboration and Leadership to Instruct Librarians on the New AASL Standards

Nov 15, 2019 4:30pm ‐ Nov 15, 2019 5:30pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


Let’s be honest. The new AASL Standards are robust, in-depth, and can feel daunting! Aligned with the new standards, the goal in working with school librarians and library leaders is to develop a shared understanding and common vocabulary, and to provide multiple entry points for applying the standards to practice. Through activities and shared ideas, participants will gain insights on using collaboration and leadership to roll out standards training for a positive, quality outcome.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will brainstorm construction of a training plan (new or revised) for the AASL Standards that aligns to their librarians’ priorities.
  • Participants will examine resources they have, or have access to, in order to help them achieve their goal of a successful rollout of the Standards.
  • Participants will leave with an understanding of the importance of collaboration and leadership in the design of professional development training.
