Kids, tweens, teens and their parents are increasingly interested in
computer programming education, and they are looking to public and school
libraries as a host for the informal learning process that is most
effective for learning to code. This webinar will share lessons learned
through youth coding programs at libraries all over the U.S. We will
discuss tools and technologies, strategies for promoting and running the
program, and recommendations for additional resources. An excellent webinar
for youth and teen services librarians, staff, volunteers and general
public with an interest in tween/teen/adult services.

Which Test for Which Data: Statistics at the Reference Desk

Instructor: Rachel Williams
Starting Monday February 29, 2016, running for 4 weeks
Register Online, page arranged by session date (login required)

This web course is designed to help librarians faced with
statistical questions at the reference desk. Whether assisting a student
reading through papers or guiding them when they brightly ask "Can I run a
t-test on this?", librarians will feel more confident facing statistical
questions. This course will be ideal for library professionals who are
looking to expand their knowledge of statistical methods in order to
provide assistance to students who may use basic statistics in their
courses or research. Students taking the course should have a general
understanding of mean, median, and mode.
