YALSA’s webinars this fall cover a variety of topics from school library partnerships to coding as a learning activity to transitioning from summer reading to summer learning. Along with these new webinar topics YALSA is moving to a new webinar platform and format. Starting in September webinars will be hosted using Zoom and instead of 50 minutes of presentation and 10 minutes of Q&A we are going to focus on 30 minutes of presentation and 30 minutes in which attendees get to talk with each other, and the presenters, about the topic. Here’s a brief overview of what’s coming this fall:
- Supporting Teen Success Through School Library Partnerships, Thursday, September 15, 2PM Eastern – When school and public libraries work together to support teen success that’s a great thing. In this webinar learn how to design services based on the common goal of improving teen lives.
- Coding, Libraries, and Learning, Thursday, October 20, 2PM Eastern – Libraries throughout the country are implementing coding activities with and for teens. But, what makes a successful activity that helps teens gain the skills they need in order to succeed in the 21st century? Find out in this webinar.
- Making the Transition from Summer Reading to Summer Learning, Thursday, November 17, 2PM Eastern – Why would a library transition from summer reading to summer learning? That’s one of the questions we’ll answer in this webinar that focuses on why summer learning is valuable when working with and for teens. You will also learn about the activities libraries are designing as a part of summer learning programs and how to get started making the move from summer reading to summer learning.
All YALSA webinars are free to members and you can learn more about registering for the sessions in the weekly member e-news. (Registration information is available approximately one month prior to the webinar.)
