EDPRC Summary of Current Activities June 2012

Education and Professional Development for Reference

Work is progressing  on coordinating a joint in-person workshop at ALA Midwinter 2013 with the Education and Professional Development for Reference Committee (EPDRC) and MARS Professional Development Committee.  The workshop, New Tech for reference: from the reference interview to roving reference, challenges, benefits and best practices, will be held Friday, January 25th, from 1-5pm at the University of Washington Odegaard Library, room 220.  Topics include: Twitter, Facebook and social media for reference, ipad/roving reference and Using a Knowledge base like LibAnswers in reference. 

Over the next year the EDPRC will be reviewing syllabi from ALA-accredited LIS programs to review what content is covered in reference courses.  This will aid in future directions for the committee.
