Turning the Page 2.0

Turning the Page 2.0 is "a free public library advocacy training course developed and presented by the Public Library Association (PLA) with generous support from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation." This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for the right price.

Here's a list of what the course consists of:

  • In-person kick-off (attendance is not required, but is suggested. It’s fun!)

  • Followed by a six-week course of synchronous and asynchronous online work

  • Facilitator-led webinars provide live instruction and collaboration once a week

  • Independent work on assigned modules of Turning the Page online offers a dynamic program of active and personal learning (one-two hours work/week)

  • Offline one-on-one feedback from facilitators

Lean how to create and tell YOUR library's story, deliver effective presentations, develop a compelling case for support, and build and sustain parnerships along the way. Did I mention this is FREE?!

This will be offered 6 times in 2011 and 2012. Go look at the schedule and find a time and make it work. Sounds like a great investment in time but NO MONEY! Hope some of you can do it. If you do, please let me know how it went!
