Great Sources of Quality PD
SLJ recently published a comprehensive list of various certification, badging, and microcredential sites; most are free and apply to teachers in just about any discipline, even though librarians are referenced. Also, I recently attended an excellent zoom webinar on micro-credentialing via the Center for Teaching Quality; the archive can be accessed here. As many districts move to personalized learning for students, they find that educators also deserve differentiated opportunities.
HAVE YOUR LIBRARIAN APPLY FOR THIS GRANT!
The grant window is open from today through November 18; winners will be notified Nov. 22. The main requirement is that you host two CS activities between Nov 22 and Dec 15, one of those during CS Week. All of the details are on this page.

Rose-Hulman Offers Virtual Tutoring Sessions and Prizes
It's a great idea as well to remind students about the basic services AskRose offers, and don't forget the vetted math and science resources available on the Rose website.
In addition, each week, one student who has asked Rose for help via phone, email, or chat will be randomly chosen to receive a $20 Amazon gift card. Teachers can download a poster and find more information here. As always, all AskRose services are free.
