Hello!  I just received the following email from ALA's Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC) about the online professional development courses they are offering this summer.  These workshops may seem expensive, however they are all online so you don't have to pay for travel and they are all self-directed which means you can work on them at your convenience so your library doesn't have to pay for a substitute. They cost:

  *   $165 for people who are not members of ALA and not members of ALSC
  *   $145 for ALA member who aren't ALSC members
  *   $95 for ALSC members

Questions? Contact ALSC Program Officer Jenny Najduch, jnajduch at ala.org<mailto:jnajduch at ala.org>, or 800-545-2433 ext 4026.

What Everyone is Saying about Online Courses from ALSC

The time to sign up for Summer 2011 ALSC Online Courses is dwindling! Monday, July 11 is your last opportunity to get into one of five excellent courses. Each offer a hands-on learning experience and way to connect with other professionals in your field.

Not convinced? See what fellow students are saying about these courses:

Series Programming for the Elementary Age<http://www.ala.org/ala/onlinelearning/servicedelivery/classes/alsc/seriesprogramming.cfm>
“Having time to discuss with other children’s librarians was a great part of this experience.”

“Well worth the time spent--great learning experience. Thank you!”

Out of This World Youth Programming<http://www.ala.org/ala/onlinelearning/servicedelivery/classes/alsc/ootwyouthprogramming.cfm>
“The course far exceeded my expectations. I am very excited about using what I have learned at my library. I now have two binders full of great information and ideas. I am so happy the first course I took was with Angela Young she is outstanding. I will definitely sign up for upcoming courses with ALA.”

“The instructor was wonderful and offered useful feedback. I liked being able to see the other students' storytime plans and appreciated the fresh, new ideas. Thanks!”

Information Literacy: From Preschool to High School<http://www.ala.org/ala/onlinelearning/servicedelivery/classes/alsc/infolit.cfm>
“Ms. Mori is an excellent teacher and very skilled at working within the online environment.”

“I would definitely take another class with this instructor.”

Newbery Medal: Past, Present and Future<http://www.ala.org/ala/onlinelearning/servicedelivery/classes/alsc/newberymedal.cfm>
“I thank K.T. and my classmates for helping me learn the ropes. It was a positive experience and I will try to register for more classes in the future.”

“I did really love the Moodle interface, having never taken an online course I had very low expectations--and I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice it was.”

Reading Instruction and Children’s Books<http://www.ala.org/ala/onlinelearning/servicedelivery/classes/alsc/readinginst.cfm>
“It is great to be able to take a course relevant to my job without having to take a college course - and learn the info I need to help my patrons.”

“I appreciated being able to take instruction online and especially having the course be flexible for time. It would have been very difficult to take one that required a lot of regular real-time sessions, because I work full-time in the library.”

“The instructor put together great resources (online, PowerPoints, and pdfs) that I will find very helpful in the future (as well as I did in the class).”
