CHICAGO The popular, interactive online course, “The Accidental Public Library Technology Trainer,” is coming live to a computer near you Sept. 8–Oct. 3, 2014. This four-week blended-learning program presented by the Public Library Association (PLA) is designed for public library professionals who have unexpectedly found themselves responsible for technology training of users or staff at their library.

Librarian, author and trainer Stephanie Gerding will guide participants through an engaging combination of live webinars, independent assignments and online discussions. See the full syllabus here.

As a result of taking the course, participants will learn practical tools and techniques to help others learn; will be able to lead activities that increase learning, participation and retention; will be able to design and share workshop materials to create a learning community; and will receive helpful, personalized advice from Stephanie’s years of coordinating and providing training for public libraries.

Pricing for the four-week “The Accidental Public Library Technology Trainer” is $139 for PLA members, $169 for ALA members and $199 for nonmembers. The deadline to register for this course is Sept. 5.

PLA is a division of the American Library Association. PLA’s core purpose is to strengthen public libraries and their contribution to the communities they serve. Its mission is to enhance the development and effectiveness of public library staff and public library services.
