PNC/MLA 2019 CE Details

The CE classes will be held on Sunday, October 27 at the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine campus. Both CE classes will run from 1:00 - 5:00

The Evolving Librarian: Responding to Changes in the Workplace and Healthcare
Instructor: Michelle Kraft, Library Director, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH
4 MLA CE credits
Cost: $125.00

Once thought of as the keepers of knowledge, librarians roles are changing and they must either evolve and adapt or become a casualty of attrition. This class will look at changes affecting librarians and provide examples of how librarians can meet them head-on. Computers are not needed for this class. Any course materials available prior to the meeting date will be sent to all registrants.  


Canceled due to low registration Design Thinking for the Medical Librarian
Instructor: Tammy Hawley-House, Continuing Education Consultant, Idaho Commission for Libraries
4 MLA CE Credits
Cost: $25 (to cover the MLA CE charge and snacks)

This training will provide the framework necessary to implement design thinking as a user-focused problem-solving tool. The concept of design thinking will be introduced through participatory learning activities. Several design thinking methods will be used to help solve problems relevant to the participants' libraries while stressing the relevance of the library users.


We will also have a CE class integrated into the regular program at no extra cost: 

Giving Participant-Centered Presentations
Instructor: Carol Casler, M.Ed., L.P.C., Learning & Development Consulting, LLC
Monday, Oct. 28, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Librarians often have opportunities to give presentations to and facilitate meetings with various audiences.  In this interactive workshop, you will gain skills you can use to keep your audience engaged. You will learn principles of participant-centered presentations and how to apply them, how to assess and respond to audience needs, and practical techniques useful in a variety of situations.
