As part of a goal to provide quality continuing education opportunities to YALSA members and the library community, YALSA offers three sessions of e-courses per year as well as face-to-face licensed institutes. YALSA is currently looking for instructors for 2010 and 2011 to design and deliver curriculum for both types of learning experiences on the following topics:

  • advocating for teen services
  • incorporating youth participation into teen services
  • readers’ advisory
  • and innovative teen programming.

If you have experience in providing instruction to library workers, expertise in one of the topics mentioned above and are interested in developing the curriculum for it and teaching it, please complete the proposal form (Word doc) and send it to

The e-courses are meant to be the equivalent of a full day face-to-face workshop, and will be offered online as a 4-week e-course. Licensed institutes are full day workshops. Instructors will be compensated for creating the curriculum and for facilitating the e-courses and institutes. Please submit your proposal by no later than October 30, 2009.
