MD State Staff Development Coordinators Meeting

Today, in beautiful the beautiful Maryland City at Russett branch of Anne Arundel County Public Library, it seems that every county and regional library system is represented here with either the system’s trainers or training decision makers in the room.

Nini Beegan, DLDS Statewide Online Learning Coordinator <this title does not do justice to how much she does> highlighted DLDS projects and interests, including Ning, Synchronous Online Learning, Learning Libraries, Moodle and MERLIN among other projects.

We learned about the Learning Libraries 3.0 training initiative from Gail Griffith, Deputy Director of Carroll County (MD) Library. More information about this is here at the MAPLA website and they are using a wiki to create the training materials. The first LL3 workshop will take place in Frostburg, MD in September. Libraries are not bound by the geographic list of suggested systems and trainings. We saw a Camtasia presentation about the LL3 Project Wiki.

Staff Development Folks Engaged at Meeting

There were also other presentations on blended learning, SirsiDynix Webminars, and Online Supervisory Training but no pictures. ( I will one day invent a wireless power source!!)

Very informative meeting so far.
