Trend Scanning for Strategic Planning

This session, “Trend Scanning for Strategic Planning: Creating the Skokie Public Library 2016-2019 Strategic Plan,” was offered as part of the Library 2.016: Libraries of the Future online mini-conference. I outlined the timeline of our library’s strategic planning process, specifically discussing the times and types of trend scanning that contributed to the new plan. The archived session is available here; the slides are below.

STEAM Programming for Diverse Populations

In June 2016, I presented a one-hour webinar for Infopeople exploring the topic of STEAM programming for diverse populations. The webinar focused on four main topics: 1) informal STEAM education as an issue of equity; 2) programming for children; 3) programming for teens; and 4) go-to resources for reaching diverse audiences with STEAM program opportunities. A recording of the webinar is available at this link.
