Too Much of a Good Thing: How to Prioritise and Streamline your Workload
With 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

Lori is a teacher librarian with over 25 years of experience in Australia and overseas, in school (K-12) and public libraries. Lori is currently teacher librarian at Lake Tuggeranong College (Yr 11-12) and Adjunct Lecturer for the School of Information Studies, Charles Sturt University. She has represented her profession nationally as an Australian School Library Association (ASLA) director and has published work in Australian Teacher Magazine, SCAN, and ACCESS. Lori has delivered professional learning at ASLA conferences, via webinar, and most recently at the National Education Summit in Brisbane. Professional passions: providing staff and students with a safe space socially and emotionally, providing professional learning to colleagues, advocacy for the importance of teacher librarians in schools, educational technology, and mentoring up and coming teacher librarians.

 

Holly Godfree coordinates the Students Need School Libraries campaign, striving to ensure that every student has access to a dynamic, well-resourced school library run by qualified library staff. Her experiences include 15 years of teaching in primary schools and five in senior secondary, ten years of school library advocacy work, and sessional marking at Charles Sturt University. In 2019, Holly was named the ASLA Australian Teacher Librarian of the Year.

Designing an Effective E-learning Course to Complement your Classroom Teaching [Replay]
Content presented by Sarah Marwick, Director & Senior Consultant, Edutech KM Ltd

 

We know that students learn at their own pace. Many want more control over their learning. If you have ever considered creating your own online or e-learning course for your students or mapping out the content for someone to develop for you, this webinar will cover the key points to consider.

 

We will start by discussing what we mean by e-learning, and clear up any confusion between e-learning, online, distance, blended learning, or any of the other terms out there today! We will then look at why you might invest time in developing an e-learning course and explore the benefits both for students and for teachers.

 

Sarah will use examples of her own work to demonstrate concepts of instructional design – addressing issues such as the type of content best suited to this form of delivery, different levels of initial understanding and different styles of learning. She will show how to make the content more interactive and engaging to the students and outline the opportunity for students to assess or expand their understanding.

After attending you will:

  • Understand the reasons why you might develop an e-learning course
  • Be aware of the steps to follow to create an e-learning course
  • Realise some of the options available to add engagement and increase the effectiveness of the learning

Sarah is a former high school teacher and experienced instructional designer, with a passion for fun, effective and personalised learning. She is the Founder and Managing Director of Edutech KM Ltd, a learning solutions company in New Zealand, and the Founder of the charitable trust, Know Your Purpose. Through the Trust, Sarah delivers transformational programs for teenagers that inspire and empower them to recognise their unique strengths and passions and make a positive difference for themselves and others. Sarah has a keen interest in supporting positive mental health. She is currently developing e-learning resources for parents of self-harming children.

School Libraries During and Post COVID-19: Series 2 [Free webinar]
Hosted and facilitated by Karen Bonanno from Eduwebinar, with school library practitioners

 

Many school library staff have responded to the changes triggered by COVID-19. There has been a need for a rapid response to how services, resources and programs are delivered to meet the needs of students, staff and the school community at this critical time. We are all at different phases of response and recovery to the lockdown. Even so, it will be necessary to consider what is sustainable beyond COVID-19.

 

In this free digital broadcast, I will be joined by a number of school library practitioners. Together we will share and discuss ideas, experiences and strategies on the way school library personnel have responded to the change and the transition back to school. We will also explore how we need to think strategically about what happens post-Covid-19.

The Bucket List Life Plan for You and Your Family
With Leanne Blaney, Founder/CEO, Adventure School with Leanne

 

With an increase in anxiety and fear during COVID-19 it’s important to focus on the mental wellbeing of kids and their families. Eduwebinar is hosting a webinar with a focus on positive mindfulness with a view to encourage people to develop individual and/or a family bucket list to bring hope and happiness.

 

Do you know what a Bucket List is? Do you have one in your head? Is yours written down? Do you have a family Bucket List? If you don’t know by now a Bucket List is all the things you want to do in your life before you ‘kick the bucket’. A bucket list can give you and your family more meaning, purpose and fulfilment.

 

Everyone is so busy being busy. They’re busy on their To-Do List. Unfortunately, people only reprioritise what’s important to them when something traumatic happens to them or someone close to them. A lot of people are sleep-walking through their life. They need to be woken up before it’s too late or before they get given a ‘Use by date’. They’re in the Matrix waiting for the ‘perfect time’ or for ‘someday’ to come around.

 

Depression and disengagement are at unprecedented levels. This really takes a toll on families around the world. Experience more meaning, purpose and fulfilment in life. Live a regret-free life rather than a regret-filled life. Be happier and have more fun with your family before it’s too late.

 

Outcomes for attendees:

  • Know how to experience more meaning, purpose and fulfilment in life
  • Learn how to live a regret-free life
  • Build positive family dynamics
  • Work together as a family to tick things off your bucket list

Leanne Blaney is the Award-Winning Author of ‘Balance’, Ignite Your Life podcast host, Certified Bucket List Coach and International Speaker. She wants people to live a brave and limitless life and her mission is to inspire individuals to break out of conformity and start designing their own lives now. Leanne does this through workshops, retreats, one on one coaching and group programs. She will help you nurture solutions to develop your creativity, increase personal passion, prioritise self-care and live a purposefully balanced life for yourself and your family.
