The BCTLA Guide to Canadian School Libraries’ Research Toolkit Webinar -April 6, 2022

Have you ever had a passion or area of interest you’ve wanted to explore in greater depth as a teacher-librarian? Have you thought about researching those topics under a professional lens?

Register here for the BCTLA Guide to CSL’s Research Toolkit Webinar on April 6 from 3:15 to 4:45 pm PST. The meeting link will be sent to participants two days before the session.

This is about teacher-librarians engaging in research to further the profession rather than the practice of getting students to do research into a topic.

Planned Agenda:
3:00 – Zoom opens
3:15 – Webinar commences
Part 1: CSL’s Research Toolkit Crash Course (60 minutes)
This section is about giving people an overview of research through the lens of the CSL Research Toolkit. Given the toolkit is there, this isn’t going to be word for word. It is an introduction focusing on the ‘need to knows’, participants can look to the toolkit for the rest.

  • What is research
  • Why do it
  • How it impacts our practice
  • How it impacts the profession
  • Research stages
  • Approaches/Methodologies – Including non-traditional methodologies/Indigenous methodology
  • Ethics
  • Data Analysis – the basics
  • Accessing the Toolkit and using it on your own time

Part 2: Tales of Treasure Mountain (~25 minutes)
This section is about giving people an idea about papers that have been presented at Treasure Mountain Canada, a school library learning commons symposium and think tank. What was required as a writer/co-writer, how they approached your their research.

Part 3: Q and A (Remaining time)

People will be able to ask questions of the group of presenters or to a specific person
