FIAA PD Workshops

In 2017/2018 the Faculty of Information  partnered with the Ontario Library Association (OLA) to bring Education Institute run webinar workshops to our alumni. We selected several topics that we thought would be of interest to our alumni.  Several alumni got together at the Faculty of Information to watch these webinars together.

Some sample topics from last year were: Leadership Series – Strategic Thinking;  How to Implement a Workplace Mental Health Program;  Long Time Worker, First Time Manager; Poor Health Literacy is a Problem in Canada!

Stay tuned for more information and registration for PD workshops for this year.

Bertha Bassam Lecture

FIAA celebrates the remarkable contributions of Bertha Bassam, Director of the Toronto Library School (1951-1964), by hosting this biannual event, consisting of a distinguished guest speaker and reception. The speaker is selected based on an ability to offer thought-provoking ideas and reflections on the important societal roles of the information and cultural professions, and the current issues and challenges we face.

The most recent Bertha Bassam Lecture was held on November 16, 2017, and featured guest speaker Camille Callison, Indigenous Services Librarian/Liason Librarian for Anthropology, Native Studies & Social Work and a Member of the Indigenous Advisory Circle at the University of Manitoba.
