SLANZA PD day

February 29, 2012
We are very excited to bring you the details of our fantastic day of professional learning and networking, to be held on Saturday 17th of March, at Te Manawa, in Palmerston North.We have secured some wonderful speakers:

  • Donna Watt, Technical Services Manager at Invercargill City Libraries and also SLANZA’s Communications team leader
    Donna will be our keynote speaker, and will continue sharing her skills and knowledge during a workshop session later in the day. Donna’s sessions at last year’s SLANZA conference were hugely popular, really inspirational, and full of practical ideas that you can put to use right away in your library.
  • Paul du Temple from Wheelers
    Paul will be demonstrating and sharing details of their eBook platform. Don’t miss this face-to-face opportunity to keep up with what’s happening on the eBook front for school libraries in NZ.
  • Warwick Taylor, Digital Services Librarian at Palmerston North City Library
    Warwick will be presenting a “Technology Playground”, showcasing a range of electronic devices and how these can be used in the library.
In addition, we’ve included time for those attending to network and share information, to “show and tell” what’s going on in their libraries, discuss current issues, and learn from each-other, because we know how important this kind of peer support can be for school library staff.
All this, plus lunch, for only $20 (SLANZA members) or $30 for non-members.

So mark the date inyour diary now, you won’t want to miss it!
