Waynesburg University’s Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Program will hold a free online professional development workshop series for school librarians and media specialists. Coaches Academy for Librarians will meet online each Wednesday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., beginning September 9 and running through October 14.
Coaches Academy for Librarians is an advanced TPS Level III course designed to help school librarians and media specialists develop the skills and knowledge to lead teachers in using Library of Congress digitized sources effectively across curriculum. Participants earn up to 20 CEU Hours with an option to earn 10 additional hours post-course.
This course will be facilitated by Jennifer Hanson, librarian and TPS consultant, and is intended to help participants develop leadership skills and gain knowledge regarding educational uses of the Library of Congress resources.
Participants will experience live audio chat sessions, peer collaboration and discussion as well as independent reading and project development.
Participants who have not completed TPS Level I are asked to complete a pre-requisite, TPS BASICS, before September 3. Login information is provided upon registration for Coaches Academy for Librarians.
Space is limited. Register at: https://forms.waynesburg.edu/machform/view.php?id=364493.
