The Next Library Conference will be held in Aarhus Denmark. The themes of their conference are Literacy/The Learning Library/Emerging Trends/Community Engagement and Democracy/Strategic Partnerships/Design Thinking/Play. There will also be a design thinking session. More info about that coming soon!
Design Kit: The Course for Human-Centered Design is a seven-week curriculum that will introduce you to the concepts of human-centered design and how this approach can be used to create innovative, effective, and sustainable solutions for social change. This course has been created to reach those who are brand new to human-centered design, so no prior experience required (though we of course welcome previous students to continue honing your human-centered design skills!)
The Public Library Associate (PLA) is now accepting proposals for their 2018 conference. The conference theme is "Imagine the Possibilities." This could be a great opportunity to present on human centered in libraries, and inspiring projects you have conducted in your libraries. The conference will be held March 20-24 in Philadelphia, PA USA. The proposals are due on April 14, 2017.
