Digital Literacy Learning Plan for Libraries

Unlocking the Secrets of a Digital Literacy Learning Plan for Library Staff virtual workshops for Michigan library staff

Registration is now open for a NEW virtual training for Michigan library staff on creating a digital literacy learning plan for library staff, offered by MCLS in partnership with the Library of Michigan. This workshop is being offered multiple times through April and May to accommodate smaller participation limits in each session, which will allow for plenty of personal attention and lots of interactive small group activities.

What topics will this workshop cover?

“Unlocking the Secrets of a Digital Literacy Learning Plan for Library Staff” is designed to equip you with the tools and a process to help you build a learning plan around technology and digital literacy skills for library staff. If you wish your library had such a learning plan in place, but you’re not sure where to start or how to organize it, then this workshop is for you! Developing a learning plan is essential in empowering staff to develop digital literacy and technology skills. In this four-hour virtual workshop, participants will learn the basics of creating a digital learning plan for their library that includes how to leverage collective strengths to build skills and how to incorporate technology competencies and create activities to help staff successfully achieve their digital literacy goals.

Who are these workshops for?

This workshop is designed primarily for public library staff who have some responsibility or involvement in staff training. Because it is funded by the Library of Michigan, it is open only to Michigan library staff.

Requirements:

The workshop is designed to be interactive and will include small group activities in breakout rooms, and the use of a microphone and camera will be required for successful participation.

When and where?

Upcoming workshop dates will be:

April 6
April 8
April 13
April 28
April 29
May 4
May 5

Each workshop will run from 10am – 3pm Eastern with a 45-minute lunch break. This workshop will only be available as live virtual instruction. At the completion of the workshop, continued support will be provided to participants in the form of six monthly virtual coaching calls. This continued support will be completely voluntary and for the purpose of gaining support in the creation and implementation of a digital literacy learning plan for participants’ own libraries.

Cost:

Because it is highly subsidized by the Library of Michigan in order to support library staff around the state, registration is just $15.
