"Much has been written about the role of Teacher Librarians in our schools. Sadly though, much of it is lamentations about the decreasing numbers of Teacher Librarians manning our school libraries."
"An expectation that teachers engage in professional learning programs is now well cemented into our schools. Time and space must be set aside within the busy school week for teachers to learn, play, experiment and most of all think how newly acquired skills can be embedded into their day-to-day teaching.

These programs could incorporate any or all of the following features:
Focused group learning
Hands on learning
Open ended learning
Non demanding learning
