Build Your Learning Culture: The Whole Organization Approach
In this webinar, explore how your library can create organizational learning structures that can help staff, in any position, embrace learning, as essential to their job.
This event has passed.
The most innovative workplaces embrace learning as an essential activity for their employees. Since libraries are dedicated learning places in our communities, it is crucial that we practice learning intentionally and internally. But where do we begin? Learning is not one-size-fits-all for individuals or for organizations. This webinar, for all library staff, from front line to administration, encourages a broad approach to creating organizational learning structures. Learn how libraries of all sizes can map learning strategies to highlight the most impactful opportunities for staff.
Presented by: Jami Carter, Director, Tooele City Library, Utah Library Association President, and creator of the Self-Directed Achievement Model.
