Library Learning Commons as Essential Physical, Virtual, and Conceptual School Spaces

Library and learning commons are often misunderstood or undervalued as key spaces for school safety, community programming, competency building, equity, diversity, inclusion, anti-racism, and idea brokerages - and then, of course, there are the endless applications for literacy and numeracy. Furthermore, this session will underscore why teacher-librarians are not a “nice-to-have” but a must have for all schools. This session will also explain how you might become a teacher-librarian and/or library leader in your school, or, how as an administrator, you can support those wanting to step-into this essential space. This session will include action that can be taken immediately, as well as longer term strategic advice. Teacher-librarians from the Alberta School Learning Commons Council will draw on personal, Canadian, and worldwide experiences and expertise to leave you unsettled, inspired, and with endless bookmarks, dog ears, and questions to consider…because that’s what teacher-librarians do!
