Becoming Open Education Leaders Webinar #edtech #OER #openaccess #highered #education #elearning #acrl | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it

Join the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community on Thursday, May 28 at 3:00 pm EDT for a free webcast presentation and discussion with Quill West, an open education advocate, librarian, and educator from Washington State. Currently Quill is the Open Education Project Manager at Pierce College. In her webcast, West will speak to the importance of academic librarians fostering an institutional culture that embraces open education as their institutions recognize that textbook costs create a significant barrier to students’ access to education. Librarians in Washington State are taking a leadership role in college-wide efforts to adopt alternatives to textbooks by engaging in a Library Services Technology Act (LSTA) Grant administered by the Washington State Library/Office of the Secretary of State. In the effort to be open education leader, West and colleagues have created a course for librarians on how to serve open education needs. The webcast will address the open education skills that librarians are developing in order to better serve the open education needs of our institutions.

Case study on teacher union partnership with school library association to support status of school libraries in British Columbia

lyn_hay's curator insight, October 22, 2015 3:44 PM

Very few states or provinces in the US, Canada and Australia still have this kind of active partnership between the teachers' union and the school library professional association. But this case study shows how difficult even teacher unions find it to advocate for school library positions in schools. Although, one advantage of union support is the union's access to school-based data on staffing etc. Well worth a read if you are fortunate to be working in an education system with teacher union support.
