After a pandemic break, the iSchool is pleased to announce that the seventh annual Summer Getaway will be offered in person on June 10-11. Led by iSchool faculty/instructors/staff and school librarians, this professional development event offers a series of workshops focused on topics related to media literacy.
The conference will be held in the new iSchool space at the Hub Champaign Daniel building. Themes will include "The Big Picture of Media Literacy" on Friday, June 10, and "The Mechanics of Media Literacy" on Saturday, June 11. Participants may earn one professional development hour (PDH) for each hour attended.
"We're excited to offer Summer Getaway in person again," said Ruth Shasteen, school librarian licensure program coordinator. "This year's topic of media literacy is timely and relevant to our work as school librarians, and networking with colleagues from around the state is always energizing!"
Summer Getaway registration is now open. A discounted, early bird rate is available until May 31. Attendees can customize the conference experience, electing to attend for one or two full days of engaged learning. For more information and to register, please visit the event website.
