Manage Staff Development
With the ever-changing nature of our work, library staff need fresh and innovative training opportunities to say current and to continue to meet the needs of our patrons. Managing staff training involves assessment of training needs, planning and evaluating staff development, and keeping on top of all the learning methods and formats available. Whether conducting training face-to-face or online, a blend of both or augmented with social media tools, managing staff learning can be the basis for a transformative and accessible learning organization for all.
Self-paced courses and webinar recordings on this topic are freely available in the WebJunction Course Catalog.
