Anytime, Anywhere Professional Development

By Sarah Kresberg, Library Director
The Allen-Stevenson School
As we head into summer some of us dream of taking a complete break from school libraries while others look forward to finally catching up on those blog posts and TED videos we have been meaning to review! Personally I am very excited to be going to the ISTE conference for the first time. I'll be attending with another librarian as well as a colleague from the tech department and it feels like perfect timing as we work towards bringing our two departments ever closer together. You don't have to go to far off places like San Antonio to experience professional development of course. There is such a wealth of resources for us to improve our practice, from newly published books and journals to webinars and online learning communities. Let's curate a list together so that we can see a variety of options in one place. I've started a Google table with some things I recommend and encourage you to throw on anything you find to be helpful. Imagine how valuable this resource would be if everyone added just one tool they find useful!
