About the Event
This information is from the Turning the Page 2.0 web page, http://pla.org/ala/mgrps/divs/pla/plaevents/turningthepage/index.cfm :
Turning the Page 2.0 is a free public library advocacy training course developed and presented by the Public Library Association (PLA) with generous support from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
In this six-week, facilitated online course, library staff and supporters will learn how to create and tell their library's story, deliver effective presentations, develop a compelling case for support, and build and sustain partnerships along the way.
Participants are encouraged to come with a specific, self-determined advocacy goal for their library. At the end of six weeks, you’ll have a complete Advocacy Work Plan to guide your efforts.
The full Turning the Page 2.0 course consists of:
* In-person kick-off (attendance is not required, but is suggested. It’s fun!)
* Followed by a six-week course of synchronous and asynchronous online work
o Facilitator-led webinars provide live instruction and collaboration once a week
o Independent work on assigned modules of Turning the Page online offers a dynamic program of active and personal learning (one-two hours work/week)
* Offline one-on-one feedback from facilitators
There's an in-person kick-off event on August 3rd at PNLA in Spokane, WA, but attendance is optional. See the schedule for more information.
The course runs from August 8th through the week of September 12th, and this is the 3rd of 6 offerings in 2011 and 2012.
