Part one and part two are designed to work together. You may come to one or both!

 

Part 1: Examine Your Career and Diagnose an Action Plan

Is your library career feeling sluggish? Do you get chills or nausea when you think about the next step on your career path (or maybe even your next day on the job)? If so, this workshop is for you! You’ll start by examining your own skills, interests, and accomplishments, and then you will assess them strategically in the context of the library and information science field’s current and developing needs. Based on this gap analysis approach, you will begin to diagnose a career action plan using resources and techniques that you learn during the session, such as informational interviewing.

Please bring a copy of your current resume or c.v. and a laptop, tablet, or smartphone* with web access for this hands-on workshop. Those with all levels of library experience are welcome to join us. Instructed by Kelly Jo Woodside, MLS Advisor.

If attending both sessions, you must register for each separately and please bring a brown bag lunch.

Mind in the Making:  Seven Essential Skills  Modules  Professional  Development for Museum and Library Educators.    

Training consists of four  3 ½ hour meetings to be held:  December 14, 2015  February  8,  April  11, and June 13, 2016 from 9:30-1:00 pm .  Participants must commit to the full training schedule in order to be eligible.

The first training will take place December 14 in the Children’s Program Room at the Worcester Public Library. Subsequent trainings will be held at the MLS- Marlboro Office.

Mind in the Making Professional Development is designed for library professionals to understand and promote the Seven Essential Life Skills that can help children and adults thrive both now and in the future. This training is designed to engage adults in learning skills that translate into fun and engaging activities and programs that help children learn how to learn. This four part training will enable library staff to better understand brain development and Executive Function Life Skills and how to promote these skills in themselves and the children and families with whom they work.  Subsequent trainings will be held in February, April and June.  This training is based on the work of Elin Galinsky  President of the Families and Work Institute at the Bank Street College of Education in New York.

Training is grounded in the research- based premise that families and professionals are better able to provide experiences that   support children’s development when they are able to incorporate that research into what they do with children every day.  This workshop will be co-taught by Shelley Quezada, Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and Stephanie Young,  Director of the Woods Memorial Library in Barre, MA.

Training is designed for professionals who work directly with young children 0-6 and who will commit to the full 14 hours.   Based on the facilitated learning approach offered by this training there will only be 16 spaces available. 

Interested?  Please contact  shelley.quezada@state.ma.us   617 725 1860 x235 for more information.  Based on interest this training will be offered in Fall 2016 on a more concentrated timetable.
