Branch, J. & de Groot, J. (2009). The Future in Focus: Preparing Teacher-Librarians for the 21st Century. Canada.

Abstract: This paper explores the experiences of recent graduates from a Master of Education program in Teacher-Librarianship at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. Recent graduates were asked to provide information about the educational needs of 21st- century teacher-librarians and to think about what topics in the current program were important and which were no longer relevant. Technology and leadership emerged as the most important issues and graduates indicated that the evolving nature of the profession required both formal and informal learning opportunities. These findings will help faculty and instructors to revision the program and the curriculum.
