The Rural Engagement to Advance Learning In STEM Digitally (REALISD) in School Libraries will provide an
online professional development workshop for school librarians working in rural areas across the United States. The workshops will provide school librarians the knowledge, skills, and abilities to support STEM education efforts in their school through digital tools and resources.
All travel costs, tuition, fees, and other expenses for participating in the REALISD Program are provided to accepted participants.
Applications for the program are open until May 31.
The summer kickoff will be a one-day interactive virtual event that will be held in late July 2021. The workshop will be held online throughout the fall. Participants will work with other school librarians from around the country and project expert personnel to explore topics on supporting STEM efforts and to ultimately create a final STEM in Practice Plan for their local school.
By participating in this program, participants will earn 3-hours of graduate course credit, with all tuition and fees paid for by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the federal agency supporting the REALISD Program.
