Strategic Planning is Your Superpower! Making the Invisible Visible
Maximise the positive impact of your school library on students’ achievement - think strategically! In this session, Lori will share her ideas about aligning your school library services and role descriptions with strategic plans from your school, your system, and nationally. She will explore how this way of planning highlights the school library as a leader of cutting-edge pedagogy, curriculum delivery, resourcing, and assessment design. After today’s session, participants will be able to:
- articulate how school librarians meet Strategic Plan directions at school, system and national level, and how to implement and share this with leadership at their school.
- select from a range of evidence-based tools to audit and evaluate your services.
- develop and match their library services and outcomes to strategic outcomes for their school and system.
