Webinar for School Librarians Serving Students With Disabilities

Developing the Capacity of School Librarians to Effectively Serve Students with Disabilities

Burton Blatt Institute

Since 2011, Project ENABLE has been training teams of librarians and teachers in the best practices for serving children with disabilities in their schools. The Center for Digital Literacy and the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University are pleased to offer a free, interdisciplinary professional development training program for school librarians on Friday, May 3rd from 3-4PM (CST).

This one hour webinar will (1) introduce school librarians to Project ENABLE’s goals, curriculum, and ubiquitous free online resources; (2) increase school librarians’ understanding of their important role in providing meaningful educational opportunities for students with disabilities; (3) improve their awareness of facilitators and barriers to providing inclusive library programs and services; and (4) introduce them to how two 2011 Project ENABLE workshop participants have been using Project ENABLE practices in their school.
