SLJ’s Innovator Basecamp: Leading from the Library
Build Key Skills to Speed Your Leadership Development, Establish a Network, and Take Your School Library to the Next Level.
School Library Journal, in partnership with Simmons School of Library and Information Science, is pleased to present a new, full-day intensive learning experience: The Innovator Basecamp: Leading from the Library. Building on the decade-long success of the annual SLJ Leadership Summit, this program is designed to help foster a new generation of school library leaders. Learn how to enhance your skills to effectively innovate in the real world and shape yourself as the future leader that our school libraries need. Join a hands-on guided expedition to taking those first steps in a new setting or making that leap into leadership.
In its inaugural year, we are especially excited to present this event in Boston at Simmons, a highly regarded and nationally ranked institution cultivating new library professionals and leaders through its school of library and information science, school library teacher program and Center for the Study of Children’s Literature.
The multi-tracked day, presented in partnership with Simmons School of Library and Information Science, will be taught by nationally recognized library leaders including Roger Sutton, Joyce Valenza, and Michele Luhtala will cover how to embrace and integrate new technologies, become Future Ready, move ahead on Making and STEAM learning, and connect with children and teens where they are. The Innovator Basecamp will help you increase the impact of your media and information literacy lessons and take an expansive approach to programming. It will offer guidance and tools to maximize your collections, engage your students in reading, and build your expertise on all things kid lit. Take advantage of the opportunity to find a mentor and build a peer network of like-minded professionals that can help guide strong career choices.
