Session 803F: Leading Learning to Transform School Libraries
Anita Brooks Kirkland, Consultant, Libraries & Learning
Jeanne Conte, Instructional Coordinator & Education Librarian, Peel DSB
Carol Koechlin, Education Consultant, Writer & Presenter
New standards from the Canadian Library Association provide a flexible framework to guide the transformation of Canada’s school libraries. Leading Learning: Standards of Practice for School Library Learning Commons in Canada focuses on capacity building, and provides structure for implementing OSLA’s Together for Learning. In this session we collaborate to explore practical strategies to create future-oriented hubs of learning, innovation, and knowledge creation in the school library learning commons.
Minds On Leading Learning
“The standards focus on key concepts to be implemented to drive best teaching and learning through the Library Learning Commons.”
– Leading Learning (2014)
Taking a Closer Look
The Big Think
Leading Learning has the potential to transform school libraries in many ways. How could YOU use Leading Learning:
- as a measurement tool?
- as an implementation guide for transition to a school library learning commons?
- as professional development for teacher-librarians, administrators and school library learning commons teams?
- as a support for teacher research?
Contribute your thoughts and see our collaborative knowledge grow!
