CE Hi-Lites: Convenient, Affordable Online Continuing Education

Interested in taking one of the new online leadership and management continuing education (CE) courses, but missed the deadlines this summer? “Everyday Leadership”, “Influence”, “Change Management”, and “Supervision without Micromanagement” will be offered again beginning October 20, 2010. These practical, self-paced courses take just two hours per week. New to online classes? MLA’s friendly support team will help you have the best possible experience, and material is accessible from both work and home. The courses are led by well-known MLA CE instructor Pat Wagner.

All programs run October 20 to December 1 – six weeks.

Eight MLA CE credits per class

$200 for non-MLA members; $150 for members

Each course is self-paced – participants read and write the weekly assignments at their own pace convenience. Writing assignments involve brief discussions: commenting and responding to class material and to the other participants’ writing. If you like to read and write, these courses are for you. The courses are accessible online from work, home, or public computers (hotel, public library, or your sister’s house while you are visiting). Expect about two hours of work per week. First week and last week are introductions and evaluations. The courses are based on Pat Wagner’s popular live MLA classes. They cover practical aspects more than the theory of leadership and management.

For more information, including a copy of the syllabus for each class, contact Pat Wagner.

HSLI 2010 Conference: Nancy’s Reception

HSLI 2010 Annual Conference – Building Partnerships: Pathways to Library Opportunities

Thursday, October 21- Friday, October 22, 2010 The Wyndham Lisle-Chicago Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, Lisle, IL

All meeting attendees and members who live in the area are cordially invited to attend Nancy’s Reception on Thursday, October 21, from 6-9 pm. Now a tradition at the conference, the annual reception honors Nancy Stump, a longtime, fun-loving, active HSLI member who served as HSLI president from 1990 to1993. Each year, Nancy’s Reception is unique in its own special way, and the 2010 reception, called “Partnering in a 3-Ring Circus”, will highlight the annual meeting’s primary theme of partnerships. It will be a festive professional evening of networking, dining, a book signing by the Friday keynote speaker, Amy Glenn Vega (a copy of her book “Lions and Tigers and Nurses” will be in each registration packet – but you can bring your own copy as well), vendors, and last but not least, a poster session.

HSLI 2010 Conference: Keynote Speaker – Amy Vega

HSLI 2010 Annual Conference – Building Partnerships: Pathways to Library Opportunities.  Thursday, October 21 and Friday,  October 22, 2010 at the Wyndham Lisle-Chicago Hotel & Executive Meeting Center. Lisle, IL. 

Our keynote speaker, Amy Vega, is a Health Care Educator at the Southern Regional Health Education Center in Fayetteville, NC, who has put lots of different theories into practice to reach students. Amy is an author of Nursing Novellas. Her first novella, called Lions and Tigers and Nurses, deals with lateral violence. Her second novella, called Broken Heart, is about coping with change and loss. These books are approved for CE credits for nurses.

Amy is a well known storyteller. Her title for our keynote is “Using the power of story to build and strengthen partnerships” on Friday, Oct. 22.  She will be available at Nancy’s Reception to sign your copy of Lions and Tigers and Nurses.

I am definitely excited about having Amy. Her book has been very, very popular at my small hospital library. In fact, I had to buy three copies, and they are still out with a waiting list!!  I am looking forward to you meeting and hearing Amy at the HSLI Conference.
