Planning for the year ahead through reflection on past practice | Services to Schools

Planning for the year ahead through reflection on past practice | Services to Schools | Answers | Scoop.it

Setting goals for the year ahead can be a daunting task.  To help with planning, librarians need to reflect on last year’s achievements. Make a list of what students learned as a direct result of programmes/activities in the library or via the library. How do you know what they learned?  What have you done in the past that has worked well? What are you planning to revise / repeat? What didn’t work out? What did you learn? 

 

Here are suggestions on documenting the evidence and using that evidence in planning: http://schools.natlib.govt.nz/blogs/libraries-and-learning/11-03/planning-year-ahead-through-reflection-past-practice
