The Convention and Expo Committee created learning tracks to help you get the most from this professional development opportunity. The tracks contain traditional one-hour professional development sessions along with some unique program formats. The 2020 tracks will be announced soon!
Un-programs (audience participation format)
Un-programs can be found throughout the program schedule. They feature a moderator who gets the discussion going, and then he or she turns the discussion and direction of the session over to the participants.
LIBChats (quick, high-energy talks by a speaker who is passionate about a topic)
Back by popular demand, LIBChats are quick sessions on a thought-provoking topic.
All of the Professional Development sessions are linked to an Ohio Public Library Core Competency.
See OLC website for a list of core competency abbreviations.
