NELIG Winter Meeting at UVM

Often when we are at NELIG events, we hear our colleagues discussing innovative activities they have done with classes at their school. Sometimes we might even watch a great conference presentation where a librarian describes an activity he or she has done with classes, but we don’t actually get to see our colleagues “in action.” The December NELIG Meeting will be a great opportunity to watch some of your creative colleagues conduct activities that they run, or are planning to run, in their classes. Those of us in the audience will act as their college students. Through this experience we will be reminded of what it is like to be sitting in the seat of the student and learn new teaching techniques and exercises from each other.

ACRL Leadership Development Workshop – Managing Change: Shaping The Future

Register early, seating is limited.
Date: Friday, December 9, 2011 (9:00AM – 3:30PM)
Location: Tower Hill Botanic Garden – Boylston, MA

“When it comes to the future, there are three types of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened” (attributed to John M. Richardson, Jr).  With all the changes that are occurring in the workplace as the result of technological advances and the state of the global economy, it is easy to feel as if work is happening to us, rather than its being directed and shaped by us.  This day-long workshop will give participants an opportunity to listen to their colleagues’ experience of change in their workplaces, to learn specific methods of managing change, and to develop strategies for shaping the emerging future in their organizations.
