I've just got back from a very good Easter break in Jersey and it's hard to get my mind back into work gear.
Here is a review of forthcoming SINTO CPD events.
Social computing (22nd May) A repeat of the event run in February, this will look at wikis, blogs and other Library 2.0 developments.
The Deaf Community: awareness raising for librarians. (6th June). Not a group with disabilities but a community with its own distinct culture. This event will increase understanding and confidence of librarians working with deaf people.
Supervisory skills (12th June) Aimed at library staff who have recently gained responsibility for a team, either through promotion or as a result of restructuring. How to get the best out of others and yourself.
Skills for the future - the SINTO members' day (19th June). This free event for SINTO members will look at the skills that library & information staff will need in the future.
Assertiveness skills (27th June). Understanding and developing assertive behaviour in the workplace: how to be, not passive..., not agressive..., but assertive.
