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.
