Summer Getaway 2019: Professional Learning for School Librarians

Back by popular demand, Summer Getaway 2019: Professional Learning for School Librarians will be hosted by the University of Illinois’ School of Information Sciences from July 11-12, 2019 in Champaign, IL.

This year’s conference will allow attendees to dive deeply into state and national library standards, with a special focus on Linking for Learning and AASL’s National School Library Standards.  Led by iSchool faculty/instructors/staff and school library professionals, each daily session will offer a relaxed learning environment where authentic dialogue is encouraged and practical application remains at the forefront.

Please visit our #SG19 conference itinerary to view this year’s session descriptions and schedule. Attendees can customize the conference experience, electing to attend for 1 or 2 full days of engaged learning. Up to 7 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be offered for each full-day of attendance.

Early Bird Registration will open in late April.  Administrators, school librarians, library paraprofessionals, and current iSchool students are encouraged to attend.  School library professionals are encouraged, though not required, to invite an administrator to attend Thursday’s Administrator Academy.

Register by June 15th to receive the discounted, early bird rate and attend for just $50/day.  Brain food (breakfast and lunch) is included in the cost of registration. We encourage current iSchool students to attend Summer Getaway 2019 for a discounted student rate of $10/day.  Please have your Campus ID number accessible for registration.

Be prepared to pack your bags; you won’t want to miss this summer getaway opportunity!
