Using Technology in Library Training: An ALA TechSource Workshop with Paul Signorelli

Submitted by Daniel A. Freeman on August 13, 2010 - 9:58am

Our goal in producing ALA TechSource Workshops is to provide a source of cost-effective, interactive, hands-on training. When it comes to using technology save your library money and increase its efficiency, you want to learn from someone who is part of your profession and has faced the same problems you face. In that spirit, we’re happy to announce our newest TechSource workshop, Using Technology in Library Training with Paul Signorelli.


Librarians face the challenge of cross-training their often down-sized staff with lean budgets, as wells as training students and patrons to use library software. Training can be difficult and time-consuming, especially when it must be balanced with the effort to maintain day-to-day library services.

Paul Signorelli will explain how to streamline your process with  free and low-cost tools like Skype, instant messaging, online discussion groups, or video in this two-part series:

    Session 1: Using Technology to Enhance In-Person Training
    Thursday, September 16th, 2:30pm Eastern
   
    Session 2: Using Technology for Remote Training Sessions
    Thursday, September 23rd, 2:30pm Eastern

With 14 years of experience as  director of staff training and volunteer services at San Francisco Public Library,  Paul speaks not only as a technologist but as a teacher. He blogs for ALA’s Learning Round Table and you can read his posts here.

You can register for each workshop separately for only $50, or save 15% by registering for both events for only $85.
