ALSC Online Education


ALSC online education

No matter your schedule, ALSC has a professional development opportunity for you.  From hour-long webinars to multi-week online courses, there are a variety of formats to meet the needs of all learners.  Courses and webinar focus on hot topics such as core competencies, STEM programs and Every Child Ready to Read. Also, don't forget to explore our face-to-face conferences and events which geographically rotate in location.




Online courses

ALSC is pleased to offer online courses every winter, spring, summer and fall. Courses are four to six weeks in length, and are offered in Moodle, an online classroom environment. All course students are issued a Certificate of Completion that they can take to their local accrediting body, should they wish to receive CEUs.  All courses are offered asynchronously, so there isn't a need to login at a certain time.  Perfect for the continuing learner with a busy schedule!

Live Webinars

In keeping up with the association’s goal to provide children’s librarians with timely, educational and affordable professional development, ALSC hosts multiple live webinars every month.  These short (60 minute) sessions give you the opportunity to learn in real-time without having to travel, all while being extremely affordable. Webinars are free and open to all.

Archived Webinars

Looking for something on demand?  ALSC offers archived webinars that can be viewed whenever and wherever and are 60 minutes long.  There is no limit to the number of times you can view the archived webinar. Archived webinars are free for ALSC members, and available for a small fee for non-members.

Student sessions

From 2013-2015, ALSC offered free, one-hour webinar workshops, hosted by ALSC Membership Committee. These sessions were directed specifically at students, but open to all members and non-members with an interest in children's library services. Links to the archived student sessions are still available.
