Each month, through December, YALSA is sponsoring free webinars (for members and non-members) on topics related to the Teen Services Competencies for Library Staff.
The May webinar (the full video recording is available after the break), facilitated by Yvette Garcia from the Chicago Public Library, covered the topic Learning Environments. In her discussion Yvette talked with participants about the staff, policies, and space needed in order to provide quality learning opportunities for and with teens.
YALSA will host a follow-up Twitter chat on youth development on Thursday, May 24, at 7PM Eastern. Use the hashtag #yalsace to participate.
The slides from the session are also available.
Don’t forget to also check out YALSA’s Snack Breaks on topics related to Learning Environments along with other resources related to the topic including the book, Putting Teens First in Library Services: A Roadmap.
