LILRC 25th Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future
Open for Business: Rethinking Relevance and Reality
October 21 & 22, 2016 Carlyle on the Green, Bethpage State Park
As most of you already know, LILRC’s Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future is packed with inspirational speakers and noted library leaders.
This year’s conference, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, will again offer an impressive roster of movers and shakers from the education, library and publishing worlds. So, we thought we’d offer a little sneak peek at the Annual Conference’s Thursday night speaker, Bill Brennan, Ed.D, who will be presenting, 3 Trends That Define the Future of Education: Innovation Labs, Makerspaces and Learning Commons. In today’s most innovative and dynamic school environments, the teaching and learning process is being transformed to foster new rules of engagement and empowerment. Dr. Brennan will share the many ways forward-thinking educators in Farmingdale Schools are breaking down traditional walls to create a culture of personalized and passion based learning. Learn how these trends are the key to ensuring that our students possess the knowledge, confidence and mindset to thrive in a rapidly changing global society. Given the growing momentum of these trends, what are the implications for students, teachers, schools, and the education community at large?
