New York Library Association is pleased to announce the first in a series of train-the-trainer workshops on the NYS Digital Literacy standards. These workshops, to be held throughout the state over the next two years, will introduce the approved digital literacy curriculum to library staff. The goal of the program is to develop a complement of trained library staff who can advance the digital literacy skills of their patrons. The workshops are open to all library staff who interact with the public.
The first workshops will be held in Guilderland (at the NYLA office) on May 31; in Utica (at the Mid York Library System office) on June 14 and in Poughkeepsie (at the Mid Hudson Library System office) on June 21. For more details on the training, go to the workshop description.
There is no fee to attend the workshop, and lunch will be provided. Travel and substitute staffing reimbursements are available to eligible libraries. In addition, libraries that send a staff person for training and then offer one of the recommended classes are eligible for a $150 incentive payment. For more information, please see Training Reimbursement Policies.
