Event description

Description

“You should write that up!” How often do we hear that when we share our success stories, but how often do we react with fear and uncertainty. We understand the need for research into effective practices in the school library learning commons and we see the success of our own instructional strategies. But when it comes to translating those success stories into sound research data, we lose confidence.

The goal of this clinic is to learn how to integrate research into practice. Starting with what we already know and do through collaborative teacher inquiry, we will explore strategies and tools for assessing the outcomes and impact of the school library learning commons program. Through a hands-on approach, we will learn the basics of research: ethics, collecting and analyzing qualitative and quantitative data and reporting findings, using real data from the DDSB project, Creating 21c Library Learning Commons Spaces. By the end of the day, the DDSB will have everything it needs to “write up” their research, and we will all leave with a deeper understanding of how we can integrate research into practice, and enrich professional knowledge into school library learning commons practice in Canada.
