The Erie 1 BOCES, Orleans/ Niagara BOCES School Library Systems & WNYLRC would like to invite you to attend a Professional Development learning opportunity:
There will be 5.5 hours of CTLE hours available from WNYLRC
Librarians from academic, school and public libraries will introduce attendees to methods which will help their students understand the research process. Based on writing assignments submitted beforehand by attendees, the presenters will proceed to model tools and skills teachers can utilize with their librarians that would introduce students to the research process and increase their information literacy skills. This will include helping students create questions to narrow and refine research topics, navigating a variety of information systems and introducing advanced search techniques for efficiency and best results. Participants will also explore ways to assist students in critically evaluating open-web and library sources for quality and relevance to their topic.
Please bring a fully charged internet ready device with you.
