The New York Library Association is pleased to announce a series of train-the-trainer workshops on the NYS Digital Literacy standards. The workshops will introduce the approved digital literacy curriculum to library staff. The goal of the program is to develop a cadre of trained library staff who can advance the digital literacy skills of their patrons. The workshops are open to all library staff who interact with the public.
There is no fee to attend the workshop, and lunch will be provided. Travel and substitute staffing reimbursements are available to eligible libraries. In addition, libraries that send a staff person for training and then offer one of the recommended classes are eligible for a $150 incentive payment. (For more information, please see the Digital Literacy Training Reimbursement Policies page, http://diglitny.org/index.php/reimbursement-policies.)
