Exploring Future Ready Librarianship: Practices for the Emerging Leader
Beginning with a self-reflection of current professional practice, you'll map out a plan for professional inquiry and growth based on the Future Ready Librarians™ Framework. Afterward, you'll examine the "wedges" of the framework through the lens of collaborative leadership, including curriculum, instruction and assessment; space and time; robust infrastructure; budget and resources; data and privacy; personalized professional learning; and community partnerships. Using videos, case studies and other resources, you'll develop an understanding of how these systemic topics are essential to Future Ready Schools®. Additional connections will be made to the ISTE Standards for Educators and the ISTE Standards for Students. With this understanding, you'll make connections to librarian practice and identify specific areas for professional and program growth. Activities will include reading/viewing and reflection, examination of current thinking and practices, development of growth goals and creation of an implementation plan connected to a program or professional objective.
