In an age where most have technology readily available, the role of the librarian is more important than ever. The librarian stands a role model for resource based learning where collections encompass a vast array of information tools from books to bytes in the virtual world. The breadth of knowledge that librarians embody places them in a leadership role within their schools. It is the teacher librarian’s responsibility to model new teaching and learning strategies to support both students and teachers. They must act as leaders in a variety of issues like resource sharing, and fair dealings.

This leadership course has been developed for teachers who already have a deep level of learning about the subject content and pedagogy gained from practical teaching experience, professional reading, and previous course work.
