Dr Ross Todd to run training course in the UK

Ross ToddWe are pleased to announce that Dr Ross Todd will be visiting Europe for a few days in the Spring and the SLA has been able to book him to come and do one of his very popular workshops for us on Monday 19th May 2008 in London. He will also run training courses for the Dutch and Belgian School Library Associations during that week

This is a unique opportunity for school librarians and teachers who want to learn and work together to bring about the best learning opportunities for students in information age schools, through a guided enquiry framework. Because we are so committed to encouraging such working together we are making a second place available to someone from the same school for half price. We expect places to fill up quickly so do book as soon as you are able.

Each participant will come away with:

  • An understanding of guided enquiry: the philosophy and grounding in learning theory
  • A knowledge of the current research in guided enquiry
  • The ability to plan and implement guided enquiry learning
  • The ability to ensure learning outcomes of guided enquiry projects
  • Strategies to develop a school community in guided enquiry
  • The capacity to train others in guided enquiry
  • Prototypes of learning materials and impact measurement instruments.

Dr Ross Todd is Associate Professor in the School of Communication, Information and Library Studies at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Originally from Australia he is also Director of CISSL , the Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries, based at Rutgers. Ross is well known in the UK for the work he has done in the field of Information Literacy and school libraries, including being keynote speaker at the SLA conference on this subject at Guildford in 2005, and the LILAC conference in 2007. Ross also ran a very successful series of lectures around the UK for the SLA a number of years ago.
