Summer Getaway 2018: Professional Development for School Librarians

Back by popular demand, Summer Getaway 2018 : Professional Development for School Librarians will be hosted by the University of Illinois’ School of Information Sciences from July 12-14, 2018.

This unique PD event, held on-campus in Champaign, IL, repeats the well-received format of a daily focus on a single, high-demand topic. Led by school library professionals, each in-depth session offers a relaxed learning environment where authentic dialogue is encouraged.

Attendees can customize the conference experience, electing to attend for 1, 2, or 3 full days of engaged learning.  This year’s conference will place emphasis on the cultivation of community partnerships as a mechanism to support youth literacy and inquiry.  School library professionals are encouraged, though not required, to invite a potential community partner/educator to attend on Thursday, July 12.

Be prepared to pack your bags; you won’t want to miss this summer getaway opportunity! Conference registration will open on Friday, April 20th! Don’t delay!
