OELMA Midwinter

A Rubric, A School Librarian and Performance Evaluation – What’s Happening? 

Are you feeling “in the dark” about teacher evaluation and what it means for the school librarian? Then come into the light and join us at the March 9, 2013 OELMA midwinter conference. As the title suggests, our focus will be the new school librarian evaluation rubric that an OELMA’s task force, led by Susan Yutzey, has been working on since June. This rubric is now being piloted in some school districts across the state. OELMA members that so graciously volunteered their time to pilot the rubric will participate in a panel discussion about their experience. Time will be given for questions from the audience. In addition to the panel, the following sessions are scheduled:

Setting Goals for Your Professional Growth 
Creating Student Learning Objectives to Impact Student Learning 
How to Evaluate Your Library Program 
Building Assessments to Gather Evidence of Student Growth (6-12) 
Building Assessments to Gather Evidence of Student Growth (K-5)

Midwinter will be held in Columbus at the Quest Business and Conference Center at Polaris. Registration is at 8:30AM and our first session about the rubric, results from the rubric, and panel discussion begins at 9:00. The conference will wrap-up at 3:20. 

A busy, informative and educational day lies ahead! Come join us, mingle and learn with some very fine Ohio school librarians! The challenge of evaluation lies ahead and our collective wisdom will get us through these beginning days!
