I’d love to see more libraries in the 2008 Champions of Learning roster. Last year, there was one—PLCMC. They got a proclamation from the Mayor of Charlotte to declare a city-wide Employee Learning Week. Putting it in words that “workforce development is everyone’s business” is a step in the right direction.
It’s not too late to participate. It can be as simple as what we did at PLCMC last year–sending out emails to employees highlighting benefits we offer to our staff in learning. You can read copies of the emails we sent out last year here.
So let’s hear it. How are you celebrating learning this year? Don’t forget to submit your celebration to ASTD so you can be recognized as a champion of learning!
