When a group of people bring their diversity of experience, ideas, values and insights to the table, solutions that benefit the group are often realized, and a valuable network of peer support is created.

This summer, CAMLS restructured its nine committees and created nine distinct Learning Groups in their place. Now, learning group meetings will be listed alongside our regular workshop offerings, making it easier for staff from member libraries to find professional development opportunities that they need. It will also be possible for anyone to organize a learning group program if they have a topic or speaker that they would like to share with their peers

This orientation meeting is a chance to learn about the changes, and how the learner-driven structure of collaborative learning groups can work for staff looking for ways to find training and development in this day of decreased spending for education.

Course Content

  • Collaborative/cooperative learning environments
  • How to define topics and structure meetings
  • Facilitating learning groups and leading sessions
  • What support will be available on the CAMLS Web site and in the CAMLS office
Audience: CAMLS committee members, or anyone who wants to find out more about participating in the learning groups. Even if you do not want to lead a learning group session, you are encouraged to come learn about the process.
