The first national professional development activity for the year will be an online forum to be held from Tuesday 29 April until Thursday 8 May. The topic is: AITSL Standards: teacher librarian practice.
This is a follow on from the August 2013 online forum whereby feedback was sought from participants on the draft document AITSL Standards teacher librarian practice. The document has now moved into full final copy and is now available, free, to all members of ALIA Schools. The document will be found on the ALIA Schools website shortly as well as the ALIA Schools blog.
Over the course of the eight days of the online forum, we will explore a specific focus area and its associated practice and evidence from each Standard. Using the document titled: AITSL Standards: teacher librarian practice participants will need to familiarise themselves with that specific focus area and provide comment or feedback on how the teacher librarian can meet that part of the Standard. Also in the discussion we are keen to learn how teacher librarians gather their evidence as well as how the Standards are used at your school.
The online forum you will be conducted here on our blog. Registration for this activity is free.
We look forward to your active participation as we gain a nationwide perspective on how the Standards are being used in our schools.
