UBuffalo (State University of New York) : Online library 1-credit graduate courses

SUNY Buffalo Library School is offering a couple of online 1-credit courses
and they are offering scholarships; apparently a lot of them.  The only cost
is a $35 registration fee per course.  Don’t delay.  Deadline is Aug. 22.
They might be cancelling the LIS 701 course if they don’t get a few more
registrations.


UB’s Graduate School of Education is offering several one-credit hour online
professional development<http://gse.buffalo.edu/ccpe/courses> courses aimed
to support library and information specialists in our schools and
communities. In-state tuition scholarships that cover the cost of one,
one-credit course are available on a first come first
serve<http://gse.buffalo.edu/ccpe/registration> basis. The only out of
pocket cost is a $35.00 application fee for a 1-credit graduate course. The
full course list is available here<http://gse.buffalo.edu/ccpe/courses>, but
specifically we think these course may be of interest:
LIS 701 Opportunity Knocks: The School Librarian and the Common Core

School librarians have a critical role in the implementation of the Common
Core State Standards (CCSS). It is important to look at how the school
librarian’s role will change because of the 12 instructional shifts embodied
in the CCSS. A careful analysis of resources that are being published to
help define the school librarian’s role is needed to help provide
librarian’s with a cohesive vision of their place in this educational
paradigm shift. Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of
The School Librarian Action Brief and AASL Crosswalks, an alignment of AASL
Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and the Common Core State Standards,
are a couple of the resources that will be analyzed. School librarians will
develop an action plan for their educational situation that they can employ
to become crucial participant in supporting teachers and students in the
implementation of the CCSS.

Date/Time: August 25 – October 10
Location: ONLINE
Course Number: 24268

Instructor: Susan Allen, Director of Libraries and Academic Technology at
the Nichols School in Buffalo, NY. Susan is an adjunct for the Department of
Library and Information Science at SUNY @ Buffalo and at Clarion University
in PA. She is a 2001 American Memory Fellow, as well as a Mentor/Advisor of
the Library of Congress conducting research on using primary resources in
the k-12 classroom. Susan is also a national PBS Teacherline facilitator and
works with the local PBS station on various teacher resource projects.

LIS 702 Inquiry learning and the Common Core through School Librarian and
Teacher Collaboration

School librarians and teachers can help themselves and others deal with the
very hard shifts in teaching that come with the Common Core State Standards
(CCSS). Schools are embracing inquiry-based learning and eschewing the “sage
on the stage” method of teaching. This change is not easy for teachers and
librarians. There are many strategies for co-teaching inquiry-based learning
that can help students achieve the higher level CCSS learning goals. In
looking at inquiry-based learning and strategies for co- and collaborative
teaching school librarians and teachers will develop a model of co-teaching
inquiry-based lessons with colleagues within their specific learning
environments.

Date/Time: October 13 – November 28
