Education Committee – December 2018 Report

The group met 2-3 times this quarter.

Recent Activities

First Activity
The committee has several initiatives that we are working on:
• We have released an RFP with a deadline of November 2nd so that we can prepare our Spring 2019 lineup
• We are planning to deploy a needs assessment in Spring 2019 (modeled after the one that was implemented a few years ago) to get a better sense of the type and format of content the membership is interested in
• We have created three working subgroups to organize committee documents, and refine some of our practices around working with presenters and assessing our offerings
o Documentation: Jason, Steven, Margaret
o Instructions for presenters: Cindy, James, Holbrook,
o Webinar assessment/evaluation: Ally, Joanna, Frank
Meets LITA’s strategic goals for Education and Professional Development

What will your group be working on for the next three months?
We will be evaluating RFP proposals, charging our working groups, and preparing the needs assessment survey

Is there anything LITA could have provided during this time that would have helped your group with its work?

Please provide suggestions for future education topics, initiatives, publications, resources, or other activities that could be developed based on your group’s work.
Pending needs assessment in Spring of 2019
