The motivation for our three fall webinars is twofold. They’re intended to share tips and strategies for inclusive online programs, AND they’ll allow us to add your ideas and experiences to our understanding of the issues you’re facing in that area.  It’s a win-win! We hope you’ll join us — for one session or all three! 

Please note: In registering and attending this webinar you agree to have data collected from you as a participant. The purpose of the data collection (example: answers you give to presenter questions or polls held during the webinar) is to inform the design of professional development to support school librarians and online learning in their schools. All data collected from participants will be kept confidential and no personal identifiers will be used in the reporting of results.
