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 June webinar (the full video recording is available after the break), facilitated by Megan Emery from the Chattanooga Public Library, covered the topic of Learning Experiences. In her discussion Megan talked about the difference between formal and informal learning and how to overlap one onto the other, how to supporting teen volunteering as a learning experience, and integrating design thinking into the teen learning experience.
YALSA will host a follow-up Twitter chat on learning experiences on Thursday, June 28, at 7PM Eastern. Use the hashtag #yalsace to participate.
The slides and the chat from the session are also available.
Don’t forget to also check out YALSA’s Snack Breaks on topics related to Learning Experiencess along with other resources related to the topic including the book, Putting Teens First in Library Services: A Roadmap.
