Join Aaron Blabey, Carol Gordon and Lyn Hay for the SLANSW State Library Day 2015!!!
The theme for this seminar and the 2015 Professional Learning Program is “Let’s Make It Happen!” In keeping with the theme this seminar is a call-to-arms to the NSW school library profession to focus on professional learning in 2015 that educates and empowers them to develop a school library program that actively and visibly contributes to student achievement. Being able to provide local evidence of how one’s school library impacts student learning has been a challenge for many teacher librarians. This requires the development of knowledge and skills in not just building evidence (gathering and analysing school-generated data), but strategically documenting and disseminating this evidence at the local, regional, state and national level. This seminar is designed to expand your professional knowledge, skills and commitment as an educator and information specialist.
What are your goals for 2015? What new aspects of your role as a teacher librarian do you need to develop?

Action Research Guru Carol Gordon
What are the problems in your instructional practice? Where is the evidence that can inform your teaching decisions? Dr. Gordon explores an action research model that is a tool of evidence-based practice. Using systematic inquiry and the action research cycle, Dr. Gordon sets the stage for you to tell your story as you identify critical problems, generate provoking questions, and collect and analyse the rich evidence embedded in your teaching.
