Using Change Management to Transform Your Library Workshop - ALA
Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 2:30 - 4:00 PM, Marston Science Library Room 136

 

Are you ready to lead and transform your library? Like everything else, the library world has and will continue to change, so it is more important than ever to have strategies, knowledge, tools, and resources for making and dealing with macro level changes.

 

Change management is more than a descriptive term—it’s a set of practices and guidelines that facilitate strategic institutional transformation. In this workshop, Catherine Soehner will teach you the principles and techniques of change management and how you can apply them to become a leader in transforming your library. You will learn how to respond quickly and effectively to your colleagues, patrons, or employee’s anxiety and possible resistance to change; how to tackle and implement big ideas; and how to establish and achieve your libraries’ goals. Applying the tools of change management will enable you to manage the increased pace of change and maintain relevance to the communities you serve.

 

After participating in this workshop, you will be able to:

•Understand what change management is in a broad context

•Apply the tools and techniques you learn in this workshop to your library’s next change process

•Use constructive communication guidelines to have successful conversations around change

Opening Up Education: Textbooks, Resources, Courseware, and More - NISO Virtual Conference
Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Library West Room 419

The 21st-century educational environment demands a certain amount of rethinking and redesign of classroom support for learning-textbooks, information resources, and interactive courseware. An emphasis on cost-containment and accessibility suggests that education will become more open. This virtual conference will address the complexities of delivering instructional tools and digital resources in the increasingly open educational ecosystem. What is a textbook? Can it be engineered into an online learning environment, with content, study aids, and quizzes delivered as appropriate to create a personalized student experience? What is the long-term role of open courseware, as created by the likes of MIT or Yale? What does a growing interest in open educational resources (OER) suggest for the various stakeholders? What types of technological support may be necessary?

Coaching Others for Sucess - NEFLIN
Tuesday, May 9, 2017, 10:00 - 11:30 AM, Library West Room 419

What comes to mind when you think of the word “coach?” It’s likely that you’ll think of words like encourage, teach, help, develop, grow, train, instruct, mentor, and advise. Whew! That’s a big job! And the reason it’s such a big job is that effective coaching is critical to “winning” – or as we say in the workplace – “success.” 

Success doesn’t just happen though, does it? It often takes someone coming alongside to coach and mentor others to give them the best chance for succeeding. 

 

Indeed, feedback through coaching is a roadmap of sorts. A good coach sees when someone is veering off-course and gives feedback to help that person get back on track. 

 

In this fast-paced 90-minute session, we’ll discuss helping others set meaningful goals and all that entails. We’ll learn why understanding obstacles, listening to their concerns, and helping them move forward is so important in helping them achieve what you both want – a job well done.
