Too Much of a Good Thing: How to Prioritise and Streamline your Workload [Replay]
Content presented by Lori Korodaj, Teacher Librarian & Holly Godfree, Teacher Librarian

 

“Do you ever think that you do too much?” This provocative question sparked a deep analysis of our workload and how to best leverage our role as teacher librarians in our school community. In this session, we will give you an insight into the practical steps that we took to identify and analyse what it is we do, identify how it aligns with the strategic plans for our library, our school, and the broader Education Department and make the necessary choices to increase our influence on student learning outcomes.

 

Outcomes for attendees:

  • Map their workload for analysis
  • Thematically cluster tasks and responsibilities
  • Build a hierarchical framework that will guide future practice

What attendees had to say about this webinar:

  • Extremely useful and practical. Clearly articulated.
  • Very useful. I just need the brain space and time with my team to put some of the ideas into practice.
  • Very useful. Some great strategies for sharing ideas, gaining different perspectives and harnessing for directions. Loved the question prompts to get you thinking about what is most important.

Go Wild this 2020 CBCA Book Week – Curious Creatures are Welcome
with Dr Jennie Bales, Adjunct Lecturer, Charles Sturt University

 

Book Week, just like the year of 2020, is different – with a new date in October and a webinar that’s a bit different too – no lockdown into categories for these great books! Teacher librarians, teachers, English teachers – anyone who loves children’s literature – should come along and grab some wild ideas.

 

Jennie will present her personal (untamed) thoughts on the shortlisted titles from a thematic rather than a category perspective. Alongside these will be suggestions on what to do with them! A wealth of web links relating to the books, their creators, supporting resources and the curiously wild theme will be shared and also available digitally after the session. Participants will find their curiosity sated and are sure to go wild over some of the great stories and ideas that will be shared on the night.

 

Participants will gain:

  • An overview of the shortlisted titles across the award categories
  • An understanding of the applicability of individual titles for different audiences and purposes
  • Inspiration and suggestions for sharing the books to students and colleagues
  • Guidance in sourcing relevant resources and connecting strategies to the Curriculum
  • Suggestions for electronic resources to support individual titles and Book Week celebrations
  • Access to an electronic compilation of links shared during the session.

Jennie’s passion for children’s literature has spanned a lifetime – as a reader, teacher and teacher librarian. Her current endeavours as an adjunct lecturer with Charles Sturt University, social media editor for the CBCA Tasmania and occasional reviewer keeps here immersed in children’s literature. She finds that there is always another great book to read and favourite to talk about. She would love you to join the conversation and escape with her on the webinar journey.
