  19. 19. What now... •What do we define as suitable subjects for international skills development of school librarians, that come from a variety of different systems in the European countries? •In what form should these actions have to include the target goals? •Is it important to offer larger courses, or is it better to offer many small courses that can be directed towards new subjects and challenges as we go along. •Is it important to get credits, or is it enough to get a diploma. •We can perhaps use Grundtvig- or Minerva EU- programs as active participants.
  20. 20. Debate I invite you to start this debate here in Italy– and that we schedule a workshop next summer, so persons with interest can get together (physically – or virtually) to debate these interesting questions! Or on niels.damgaard@gmail.com
