PCI Webinar with Nick Tanzi

Teaching Tech to Library Patrons: The Current Landscape

Wednesday, February 19th from 12:30 – 1:30 PM  

Must register by 2/14

Staff have long served as technology instructors to our communities; what does that role look like in the year 2020 and beyond? This presentation will look at common topics, suggested curriculum, and best practices.

 

A variety of approaches will be covered, including one-on-one, small group, drop-in, and passive instruction. With the right preparation and delivery, libraries can continue to help their patrons navigate the rapidly changing tech landscape!

 

Nick Tanzi has been incorporating emerging technologies into the library as a children’s librarian, the founding member of a digital services department, and most recently, as the Assistant Director of the South Huntington Public Library. During this time, he has spoken in the U.S. and abroad on topics ranging from social media marketing to 3D printing.

 

He is the author of Making the Most of Digital Collections through Training and Outreach (2016), and Best Technologies for Public Libraries (2020). He writes “The Wired Library” column for Public Libraries Magazine. Tanzi was named a 2017 Dewey Fellow by the New York Library Association, and currently serves as President of its Making and STEAM Round Table.
