Thanks to the 631 members who contributed to our continuing education survey. We got great feedback on program ideas, with loads of suggestions for e-content related sessions (collection development, devices, platforms, and more). Social media is a strong contender, and long range planning is in high demand too.
We learned that the 85% of members still prefer face-to-face training, and those who are interested in online training want it to be self-paced. People are interested in attending sessions almost any time, with a few even willing to participate on Sunday!
The MLS Continuing Education and Advisory Committee will provide input as the staff begins to implement member suggestions in upcoming CE calendars.
Congratulations to Mary Dolan (Medway High School Library) and Laura Szaro (Simmons SLTP), who names were drawn from all the interested participants to receive a thank-you Starbucks card.
