BIBLIOPROF 2016/2017 – SECOND EDITION

Specialisation/refresher course AY 2015/2016

Director: Prof. Fausto Benedetti

Coordinator: Prof. Ornella Castellano

Coordinator of the national librarians association: Prof. Patrizia Lùperi


Every school has a library, but a professional and competent figure taking care of its management would be needed. The professional figure of the BiblioProf sprang out of this need. The BiblioProf is a teacher who, as well as teaching, is in charge of the school library. The course aims to provide teachers with archive management, librarianship and bibliography knowledge and, at the same time, competencies in didactic planning, communication, knowledge dissemination and fundraising. The course pathway endows the “BiblioProf” with competencies in:

  • Promoting activities related to the library
  • Organising the lending services and access to the resources
  • Spreading out didactical proposals and setting up projects (semantic catalogues, learning units, vertical curricula, reviews, reading proposals, etc.)
  • Verifying online and on paper sources of information
  • Networking activities with other schools and institutions
  • Organising events to promote reading at school and on the territory
  • Selecting new publications
  • Planning fundraising activities

All these activities will requalify the library and relaunch its role on the territory. The library becomes a centre for informal learning, and a meeting place for students and teachers where new competencies can be acquired.

 

Two training paths are foreseen:

  • Specialisation/refresher course granting 20 ETCS
  • Specialisation/refresher course granting 8 ETCS.

The specialisation/refresher course granting 20 ETCS is entirely delivered online. The duration is 1 academic year for a total of 500 hours. 1 ETCS equals to 25 hours of studying, including lecture-based learning, laboratories and individual study.

The modules require individual study on themes proposed by the tutors, accompanied by synchronous (videoconferences) and asynchronous (online forums) activities moderated by the tutors.

The course is structured in 8 didactic modules introduced by the “Lectio Magistralis” of Luisa Marquardt, tenured Professor in bibliography and librarianship at the department of “Educational Sciences” of Roma Tre University.
