School Libraries Leading Learning

logo for Glasgow conferenceWe are pleased to announce the opening of booking for SLA's 2008 Weekend Course, to be held in Glasgow, from 13th to 15th June.

Focussing on the importance of the library and librarian's support for learning within the school, the SLA has brought together many inspirational speakers such as Ian Gilbert, Founder and Managing Director of Independent Thinking Ltd, and Dr Jonathan Sharples, Deputy Director of the Institute for the Future of the Mind.

We also offer a great range of practical workshops on such diverse subjects as What is a Good Learning Environment?, Teaching Information Skills to the Google Generation and Using Second Life in an Educational Environment.  Together with an excellent social programme, including a civic reception by the Lord Provost of Glasgow in the wonderful City Chambers, a Saturday night céilidh, great networking opportunities, not to mention a host of approachable authors, this has to be a brilliant opportunity for personal development and inservice training for school library staff.

Full details of the programme as well as a booking form are now available.  Please note earlybird prices offer a great discount for anyone booking before 31st March.  Booking closes 23rd May.
