The Rural Engagement to Advance Learning In STEM Digitally (REALISD) in School Libraries will provide an online professional development workshop for school librarians working in rural areas across the United States! The workshops will provide school librarians the knowledge, skills, and abilities to support STEM education efforts in their school through digital tools and resources.
The summer workshop will be an interactive virtual event that will be held in late July 2021. The workshop will be followed by an online module in the Fall in which participants will work with other participants and project personnel to explore further topics on supporting STEM efforts and to ultimately create a final STEM in Practice Plan for their local school.
By participating in this program, participants will earn three hours of graduate course credit, with all tuition and fees paid for by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the federal agency supporting the REALISD Program. If selected as a participant, all other expenses for participating will be fully funded by the REALISD Program.
