Are you interested in professional development but can’t afford it? Are you the solo youth librarian in your library, making off-site professional development difficult? Do you just wish training was more fun?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have an answer!
It is with great pleasure we introduce…
By enrolling in Storytime University, you will earn digital badges for completing professional development tasks. Earn a Ninja, Warrior, Samurai, or Foot Soldier badge by completing tasks through the Storytime Underground website, or earn the Grasshopper or Sensei badge by completing tasks related to learning and teaching storytime skills and philosophies. Our goal is to encourage more youth services professionals to participate in professional development activities while making it fun for everyone. We also seek to redefine “expert” by proving that all youth services professionals, regardless of experience, age, and all the rest, can be Storytime Senseis.
If you have any questions at all, send us an email at storytimeunderground at gmail.
