I’m back from sunny, breezy Anaheim and the ALA Annual Conference. WiFi access was a bit spotty while I was there, so I apologize for not posting these sooner.

On Friday, Vi Harada, Debbie Abilock, and I, along with four contributors to our book (Anne Stokes, Chris Harris, Susan Smith, and Connie Williams) presented a preconference on librarians as professional developers.

You can find the slides here.

Saturday, I presented Think, Create, Share Grow: Setting the Stage for Collaborative Inquiry with Peg Sullivan and Susan Ballard, talking about the potential for makerspaces to map to the inquiry learning process.

Those slides are here.

It was great to see familiar faces and meet some new folks as well. I always feel as if the closing of ALA signals the real beginning of summer. Happy Summer, everyone!
