ACRL offers a number of online and in-person learning opportunities focused on issues in new roles, changing landscapes, and fostering change. Browse our latest offerings below, and check back often for new opportunities!
Bring robust online training to your library or organization! ACRL’s virtual Open Educational Resources (OER) and Affordability workshop will help you understand the basics of OER and how libraries can be involved in affordability initiatives at your institution. This introductory virtual workshop is intended for academic librarians and library staff interested in learning about OER and/or developing OER initiatives.
ACRL’s Fostering Change Cohort is a 12-week program designed for teams from institutions planning any type of organizational change. Each team can be made up of 2 to 5 library workers. Facilitators will help you articulate your vision to various stakeholders and imagine ways to demonstrate the value and impact of your change. They’ll aid in identifying and establishing team dynamics, providing strategies for working with people who are struggling with change, and trying out project management tools for organizing your work. The facilitators and your cohort will help you create a plan that can help take your organization from where you are today to your imagined future.
