Learn to "Turn Outward" at ALA 2014 Annual Conference

The 2014 ALA Annual Conference is fast approaching.

Among the new offerings this year: a series of learning sessions, offered as part of Libraries Transforming Communities, that will introduce participants to the practice of "turning outward" and putting community aspirations first.

In four “Turning Outward to Lead Change in Your Community” sessions, conference-goers will gain practical tools to aid in decision-making, planning and group facilitation, and will discuss how to remain engaged and rejuvenated both on and off the job. Each stand-alone session focuses on a single tool; taken together, they become a powerful framework for engaging community and leading change.

The four part are:

All four will take place in LVCC-S223.

Our sessions will be led by Cheryl Gorman and Carlton Sears of the Harwood Institute for Public Innovation.
