Leadership Orientations: Librarians as leaders and drivers of change in Schools/the Library as a platform for innovation

Librarians as drivers of change and influencers of innovation in schools.

Leadership is an opt-out activity. All educators, including librarians have the potential to drive change and innovation within their school. Becoming a more effective library leader depends on understanding your personal strengths and inclinations as a leader. 

Based on the Four Frames of Leadership, described by Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal in Reframing Organizations: Artistry, Choice and Leadership, this session will provide the opportunity to reflect on your leadership style and understand your personal “frames profile”. 

Participants will consider new perspectives about the future role of libraries and librarians and be encouraged to collaborate on real-world examples of change opportunities and challenges. 

This experiential learning workshop will explore practical strategies for how librarians can exercise constructive influence within their library unit, their library as a whole, and the broader school context, to positively contribute to the future of learning. 

All K-12 educators and administrators are encouraged to attend.

Together and Apart: the Collaborative Process of Creation
Join author-illustrator team Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann in a sneak peek, behind-the-scenes look at how they work in tandem to create joint projects. How do two experienced artists, who have worked on many projects individually, figure out how to tackle a project together? What do the differing opinions, talents, and tastes of each bring to the project?  How does this affect the finished book?  And how can you apply what they’ve discovered to your own classroom collaborations?  This fast-paced workshop will provide plenty of tips and tricks as Candace and Eric lead you through their journey of discovery with energy, humor, and candor.
