Master Trainer Training Wrap Up

Even though the four days of face-to-face training is over the learning continues. Now that we have returned to our libraries we are challenged with applying all the skills we learned to our every day jobs.

Between now and March 2009, each master trainer participant will design and present a new one-hour training session at his or her library. We will have coaching from our trainers and project teammates. We will also have additional training delivered online via synchronous and asynchronous platforms. In March we return to Chapel Hill for an additional two days of training and a final showcase where we present an overview of our training to library directors and other master trainers from across the state.

Stay tuned for updates as the program continues!
