Call for Papers - Continuing Professional Development & Workplace Learning Section

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) will be meeting in Berlin, Germany, August 1st - 9th, 2003. As part of the conference, the IFLA Section on Continuing Professional Development & Workplace Learning, is planning a 2-hour Open Forum entitled:

"Stakeholders for Continuing Professional Development (CPD): a look at the future of online delivery"

The section invites proposals on the roles, responsibilities and the requirements for success of library associations, vendors, library schools, libraries and librarians themselves in the delivery of continuing professional education to librarians and library staff.

Are there library training programs in place, either in academic, public or special libraries, used to educate current and future librarians who have successfully demonstrated winning outcomes? What were the stated outcomes and were these realized by the educational or practical library training program? What were the methods and techniques of developing and implementing the successful program, its outcomes and the evaluation of its outcomes?
