Seminar on “E-Learning and D-World : Giving School Libraries / Media Centers the Cutting Edge” on May 26 - 27, 2008

ATENEO DE MANILA HIGH SCHOOL
EDUCATIONAL MEDIA CENTER

Dear Colleagues,

We are now entering a digital erain the 21st century which is revolutionizing the information cycle and changing the way school libraries/media centers are being managed. As media center coordinators/librarians, we face great challenges ahead of us in the forms of emerging technologies in disseminating information, in the management of digital resources, as well as in the integration of new approaches to enhance teaching and learning. But beyond all these is the challenge to encourage our students to read and, at the same time, develop their research abilities using various types of formats.

Because of these new challenges facing us today, the Educational Media Center of the Ateneo de Manila High School is again conducting another seminar as part of its continuing education program for media center coordinators, school librarians, and AV personnel. Thetheme of this year’s seminar is “E-Learning and D-World : Giving School Libraries / Media Centers the Cutting Edge” which is based on the theme of the 36th Annual Conference of the International Association of School Librarianship. In this seminar, some of the learnings/insights gained from the conference by two of its participants from the Philippines will be echoed. Moreover, several librarians/media specialists have been invited to share their knowledge and expertise on topics related to the theme but applied to Philippine setting.

This two-day seminar will be held on May 26 - 27, 2008 at the Conference Hall of the Social Development Complex, Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City. The registration fee is P1,500.00 which covers seminar meals, snacks, hand-outs, and certificate. For further information or confirmation to this invitation, please contact Ms. Julie Ann Bernardo at telephone number 426-6001 local 6206, fax number 426-5914 or you can e-mail me at eperalejo@ateneo.edunot later than May 15, 2008. Below is a copy of the seminar program and registration form. We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Elizabeth R. Peralejo
