EVENT TIME AND DATE:
Thursday, November 29, 2012, 2:00-3:00 PM ET/11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PT
Library Journal presents a gathering of past LJ Teaching Award winners as they discuss the changing nature of librarianship in the new digital landscape from the perspective of teachers setting the bar for innovation in LIS education.
With decades of combined experience fostering critical thinking about library issues and essential leadership skills, these teachers have first-hand experience incorporating new methods and practices as they adapt to address the ever-evolving demands on their students. What challenges await the class of 2013 and beyond? What are the essential skills and qualities that will be required of future library leaders? Is the increasing shift toward online learning affecting the way librarians are trained, and if so, how?
Join us as we explore these questions and more in conversation with three past LJ Teaching Award winners, moderated by LJ Editors and adjunct LIS educators John N. Berry III and Josh Hadro.
Rebecca Knuth - Full Professor, Library and Information Science Program, University of Hawaii
