ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 5.3 A Juried Paper: The Lilead Fellows Program: An Alternative Approach for Preparing School Library Leaders

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Lilead Fellows Program, funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, is designed to enhance the leadership skills and administrative expertise of school district library supervisors through long-term professional development (PD). This PD is achieved through the collaborative work of 25 supervisors from across the country, both in person and online over an 18-month period. Participants focus on transformational change regarding current goals in implementing 21st century skills, integrating technology, and increasing advocacy. The program takes a novel approach in its long-term deployment and in developing PD for district library supervisors, instead of building-level librarians.
