Empathy: The Secret Sauce in Effective Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Charity Village)

 

Empathy is our first point of meaningful connection to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts. We think back to instances when our clients have faced barriers and biases, or times when people close to us have been excluded, or our own experiences of feeling that we didn’t belong, and these narratives became the fuel for driving the work forward. But what if we’re only scratching the surface? What if we reconsider empathy as an important skill for effective DEI design, development, and implementation? This webinar explores these questions and shows us how different ways of thinking about empathy can help sweeten the sauce, and bring about more impactful DEI.

Is it Time to Scrap the C.R.A.A.P. Test? Using Formative Assessment to Improve Students’ Resource Selection Skills (edWeb.net)

 

Distinguishing truth from disinformation is only a small part of a larger problem. Students frequently rely on shallow reference materials as core sources for research, treat 2-minute news clips as in-depth journalism, and fail to distinguish between reportage and opinion articles. Lecturing students about these shortcomings rarely helps, but providing meaningful feedback on research checkpoints (e.g., research questions, works cited lists, and thesis statements) can be instructionally effective. Join Michelle Luhtala as she shares replicable lessons and instructional materials to help learners improve their inquiry skills.

Let Your Seat Get Cold (Network for Good)

 

Heidi Webb, CFRE has spent the past 22 years as a front-line fundraiser. She says, “the number one reason that fundraisers are not raising as much as they could is that they are spending too much time at their desk and behind their computer. They need to let their seats get cold.” Heidi Webb has secured dozens of 6-figure gifts and, according to her, these gifts have never been through email or social media posts. Learn the tricks of the trade and how you can manage your relationships with tools like Network for Good so that you, too, can increase fundraising outcomes in 2020!

The Positions Model for Improving Personal Influence and Workplace Interactions (Pattern Research)

 

The concept of positions in communication is embedded in the grammar of most languages. First position, second position, and third position translate into first person (I, me, mine, we, ours), second person (you and yours), and third person (he, she, it, they, theirs). These three positions represent how we see the world and our relationships with other people. And, as with most models of human behavior, there is an upside and a down side. Ideally, we can move among the three positions, which translate into personal responsibility and initiative, empathy and compassion, and objectivity and rationality. However, sometimes we get stuck in one position, which keeps us from being as productive and influential as we want to be. Learn what each position stands for and how to incorporate them in how you think and act in your workplace.

Build Staff Buy-In for Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

 

Is your organization open to engaging volunteers in new ways? Often one of the biggest challenges to a new model of volunteer engagement is the resistance of paid staff.

In this webinar we’ll discuss strategies for working with paid staff to engage volunteers. We’ll cover what you can do to alleviate some of those fears, strategies for working within a Union environment, and how you can train and support your coworkers as they become responsible for managing volunteers.

Now, findings from new research studies are not only backing up that intuition, but they are providing teachers and child care staff with the new approaches and techniques to employ in their classrooms. This webinar will review those highlights.

That’s Not Funny! Or is it? (National Network of Libraries of Medicine)

 

To be truly socially just do you have to eradicate humor? I don’t think so! Let a trained professional explain how humor works and how it offends other people. Cultural appropriation, stereotypes, and harmful attempts at humor are not required to have a successful event. How can we plan better, intervene when something isn’t right, and take responsibility for harm in our communities? If we think before we joke – we can still joke.

Information Hunters: When Librarians, Soldiers, and Spies Banded Together in World War II Europe (U.S. National Archives)

 

While armies have seized enemy records and rare texts as booty throughout history, it was only during World War II that an unlikely band of librarians, archivists, and scholars traveled abroad to collect books and documents to aid the military cause. They collected enemy texts, followed advancing armies to capture records, and seized Nazi works from bookstores and schools. When the war ended, they found and helped restitute looted collections hidden in cellars and caves. In Information Hunters, cultural historian Kathy Peiss reveals how book and document collecting became part of the new apparatus of intelligence and national security, military planning, and postwar reconstruction.

Quick Play Gaming for Teen Outreach (Indiana State Library)

 

Teen patrons in every community live lives that are more and more hectic with little spare time and sometimes shrinking awareness of libraries and what they have to offer. It is sometimes the case that to engage them the best thing to do is to go where they are. In the community of Hagerstown, IN, a significant part of that has been accomplished by going into the high school and with the development of a program called the Quick Play Game Club. The program began over three years ago, originally as an International Gaming Day event that was highly successful, working in partnership with the school. This webinar will cover how the game club began, the process of working with the school staff and finding a place in that very set daily schedule and how it has evolved into a twice monthly outreach program, the games used and the tips and rules that have made it fun for everyone.

Why and How Librarians can Help with Census 2020 (North Dakota State Library)

 

This webinar will have a North Dakota focus but may be useful to others as well. Libraries represent ‘trusted organizations’ in the community with the resources and the opportunity to education members of the public on the importance of the decennial census in the local community.  Librarians also have the opportunity to explain the ease of the census, just 10 questions per person, and the rules for privacy and confidentiality for personal information the Census Bureau is required to maintain.  Often located in census tracts with higher proportions of traditionally under counted populations, most libraries have computers and WiFi accessible to the public. These assets are important in completing the 2020 Census as it will be the first in which responses can be provided online. Librarians, working with local complete count committees, can help ensure their local community is accurately counted and obtains its fair share of financial resources for the next decade.

Advocates of All Ages: Recruiting and Retaining Younger Generations as Trustees and Friends (Nebraska Library Commission)

 

Millennials are more likely than other adults to have visited the library recently. However, many friends and trustees boards do not have even a single millennial member (Pew 2016, ALA 2018). What accounts for this discrepancy between the demographics of our library users and library civic leaders, and how do we rectify it? The presenters will argue for the importance of developing generationally representative boards and explore common barriers to service for those under 40. Participants will leave with practical strategies for identifying and recruiting from the Millennial and Gen-Z generations, and for adapting board cultures to engage and retain them.

Circulating Tools and Other Unique Items (North Dakota State Library)

 

Libraries have been circulating “non-traditional” items since at least the 1800s so it’s no surprise that North Dakota libraries are embracing unique collections. In 2017, the Minot Public Library (MPL) was approached by volunteers with the AmeriCorps VISTA Program about providing a tool library and since MPL had experience circulating unique items such as tablets, robots, video games and more, the Library staff jumped on board. The MPL tool library was not just about being trendy though. The goal of the VISTA program is to promote resiliency and the purpose of the tool library is to help people become more resilient which was especially important in Minot following the 2011 flood. The MPL Tool Library officially opened in March of 2018 and has drawn a lot of attention and provided for some great learning experiences. In this webinar, MPL Director, Janet Anderson, will describe the work that went into opening a tool library and share some of the important lessons the staff have learned.

We Stories: Diversity in Children’s Literature at the Library (Georgia Library Association)

 

Research of family habits indicates that the vast majority of white families rarely, if ever, talk about race at home. At the same time, many library patrons from minority groups observe and report that there are few books for children that are culturally relevant and reflective of their lives. St. Louis County Library initiated a partnership with a local organization that aimed at addressing both of these deficits. Learn how the collaboration between a non-profit and the public library evolved and the results of this collaboration.

Public Libraries Partner to Respond to the Opioid Crisis (WebJunction)

 

As communities across the country experience the impact of the opioid epidemic, public library staff are finding themselves on the front line of this public health crisis. How should libraries engage? Public Libraries Respond to the Opioid Epidemic with Their Community is an IMLS-funded project led by OCLC and PLA to expand libraries’ capacity to support their communities. The project studied a diverse set of communities where the library is an active partner in addressing the epidemic and facilitated discussions with library leaders and a range of government, public health, and community organizations. Presenters will share insights gained from the case studies and emerging practices, opportunities, and challenges, and share resources to help library staff guide their libraries’ response to the opioid crisis. This is the first in a series of webinars on this topic, highlighting the project findings.

AT YOUR LEISURE – Pre-recorded webinars to view at your convenience

Fundamentals of Library Advocacy (EveryLibrary) https://www.everylibraryinstitute.org/webinars_on_demand : In this introductory webinar, we are going to explore what it takes to build a movement for libraries in your local community. The advocacy theory, strategies, and tactics that we introduce come from some of the largest movements for causes and political campaigns. These advocacy tools include data, messaging, supporter cultivation, fundraising, using volunteers, and a wide range of tactics like Facebook, outreach, email and direct mail, paid and earned media, and much more.

I Can Read That! AT Supports for Struggling Readers (Center on Technology and Disability) https://www.ctdinstitute.org/library/2018-05-21/i-can-read-supports-struggling-readers : In this session with Diana Ree-Reeder, participants learned how to use the built-in accessibility supports in their mobile devices to support struggling readers, a free screen reader, as well as how to adjust settings in three library apps: Google Play Books, Kindle App, and Libby/Overdrive so that readers can confidently say, “I can read that!” (Get the PowerPoint in the download box)

Developing and Nurturing a School-Wide Culture of Reading (School Library Connection) https://schoollibraryconnection.com/Home/webinars?tab=3 : In this webinar, Melissa Thom shares effective strategies to facilitate, develop, and nurture an impactful culture of reading for both students and staff at your school.

 

Homelessness in Small and Rural Communities: Libraries Can Help! (WebJunction and ARSL) https://bit.ly/2ND5Qb0 : Maybe you’d like to help address the needs of patrons experiencing homelessness, but aren’t sure how—especially with stretched financial and human resources.

The Relationship 360: Using People Skills and the Leadership Mindset for Success (Effectiveness Institute)

 

The Behavior Styles model developed by Effectiveness Institute uses the metaphor of an iceberg to identify critical differences between behavior and personality. The entire iceberg represents our personality and the part above the waterline represents our behavior—which is a choice. What stops most people from making successful long-term change to their behavior is their mindset. To learn more about mindset and how it can be an accelerator of individual and team performance, George Myers, President of Effectiveness Institute, has invited a former institute partner and now go-to expert on mindset training, Hugh Blane, to join him in an interactive and high-impact webinar, “The Relationship 360: Using People Skills and the Leadership Mindset for Success.”

Designing for Human Behavior: a Free LLAMA Webinar (Library Leadership & Management Association)

 

This free webinar will provide a basic understanding of the natural human behaviors and instincts that drive our everyday lives, such as the desire to be in a secure environment and the need to have vision of your surroundings. You will learn how you can design your library space to promote comfort and security within the details – everything from the pitch of the seat and the ability to maintain your personal bubble, to the sightlines promoting comfort for our human instincts that trigger our internal fight or flight. Furniture that works well in library spaces has proven time and time again to put our instinctual fears at ease and allow us to spend those hours tucked away in the comfy chair reading a novel or at a computer completing a task. Now, it’s time to understand why this happens and how to better design our libraries with these things in mind.
