Upcoming FREE Webinar
Sound Learning: Audiobooks in the Library to Support Literacy

Thursday, September 12 • 5pm EST / 2pm PST

*Rose Brock*, Assistant Professor, Library Science

Audiobooks have come to the forefront of education, helping students learn
through the power of active listening. Current research indicates that 85%
of learning derives from listening and 30% of people are auditory learners.
With this data, it is critical that educators and librarians in particular
understand the value of providing audiobook opportunities to their
learners. Audiobooks provide an excellent option while promoting literacy
by focusing on the art of listening. As librarians, we must explore more
varied avenues for meeting the literacy needs of all learners.

This webinar will focus on defining why critical listening is essential,
the benefits of audiobooks, and an introduction to audiobook programs that
support libraries and classrooms. Tune in for tips to promote the
circulation of an audiobook collection, as well as suggestions for funding
audio. The webinar will conclude with an "I'm listening...now ask me
anything about audiobooks: Q and A".

*Join us to learn:*

   - Why critical listening skills will help your students succeed
