Regional Workshops

 

We’re coming to you!

The NC LIVE team and special guests will be visiting a library near you this fall! Join us at an NC LIVE Regional Workshop to learn about NC LIVE, network with peers, and gain transferable skills to take back to your community. While much is similar to past years (still free, still includes lunch!), this year we’re offering three tracks for the day: the NC LIVE Training Track, the Leadership Development Track, and the Open Educational Resources track.

TrainingRESOURCE TRAINING TRACK

Whether you’re staffing a reference desk, teaching information literacy classes, promoting library resources, or managing electronic databases, it’s important to know the ins and outs of your NC LIVE resources to help your communities succeed. In the NC LIVE Training Track, you’ll get hands-on training with NC LIVE resources from the experts. The registration form will ask you to rank the resources/services you’d most like to learn about at the workshop, so each agenda is catered to that day’s attendees. We’ll explore content, navigate databases, and brainstorm ways to use them in your communities. You’ll head back to your library with an official NC LIVE Training certificate and new wealth of NC LIVE knowledge!

LeadershipLEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TRACK

Finding the time and funding to develop your leadership skills can be challenging. That’s why NC LIVE offers a free Leadership Development workshop series this fall. Guest facilitators will share their knowledge on specific leadership competencies through active learning exercises that will give you an opportunity to experience and learn to navigate common leadership challenges. Some of the competencies we will cover include:

  • leading organizational change
  • managing conflict
  • finding talent
  • developing strategy
  • navigating workplace politics

Whether you are in a leadership position already, or aspire to be, consider registering for an upcoming NC LIVE regional workshop. Is there a local library leader that you'd like to suggest as a session facilitator? Send a message to help@nclive.org

 OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES TRACK

NC LIVE is providing faculty, instructors, librarians, instructional designers, and distance education staff an introduction to open education and the Open Education North Carolina (OENC) initiative. Through sessions tailored for librarians and faculty, attendees will learn about the OENC initiative, how to promote OER adoption on campus, and how to apply for a $1,000 grant! 

  • Morning Workshop: For librarians, instructional designers, distance education staff, and any others who would like to champion open education on their campuses.
  • Afternoon Workshop: For faculty who are interested in learning about open educational resources, how to adopt them, and how to apply for a $1,000 grant.

TESTIMONIALS

"The presenters were very relaxed and approachable which created the feeling of a shared learning experience rather than a simple lecture designed to disseminate facts."

"Meeting NC LIVE staff and librarians on the various advisory councils makes me feel more comfortable about reaching out with feedback concerning future resources."

"I felt that the meeting was very productive. The subject-based handout was particularly helpful."

"Having the regional meetings was a great idea. Travel budgets are limited so it was nice to be able to take a day trip for professional development, refresh and meet the new NC LIVE staff! Please keep offering these regional meetings!!"
