Expectations & Requirements

Standards

The fields of library information and technology are becoming increasingly integrated, and school leadership in these areas is often the responsibility of one person. Consequently, students can expect focused, integrated and practical assignments in both fields; engaging and intensive discussions and small group projects; and multiple opportunities to complete field experiences and projects that dovetail with individual goals and school improvement plans. In addition, students will have an opportunity to become involved in professional organizations nationally and internationally in the field.

This program offers a unique opportunity for teachers to become leaders in their districts in both school library information and technology literacy. With courses offered in both these fields by current practitioners and Roosevelt faculty who are known nationally, candidates will have a unique opportunity of being trained in two fields within one degree, putting Roosevelt at the forefront of two teacher leadership fields that are increasingly becoming unified.

Testimonials

“This innovative new program reflects the overlap of many responsibilities held by library and technology leaders. Students will learn to use technology to teach content, to encourage digital safety and citizenship, and to offer professional development. They will have a unique opportunity to study the two areas simultaneously and leave with practical knowledge and skills that will translate into leadership roles as media specialists, technology specialists, or hybrid positions.”
