Rm. 301, THE NATIONAL LIBRARY BUILDING, T.M. KALAW ST., ERMITA MANILA 1000, PHILIPPINES http://sites.google.com/site/paarlonlineorg 25 July 2014 Dear Colleague(s), Warm greetings! The Philippine Association of Academic/Research Librarians, Inc. (PAARL), is pleased to invite you to its 3rd Marina G. Dayrit Lecture Series 2014 with the topic, “Staying Relevant: Understanding Self-Directed Learning for Library and Information Professionals”. This professional activity will be held on 17 September 2014, 1:00PM to 3:30PM at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, during the 35th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF). The lecture series, named in honor of our founding president Ms. Marina G. Dayrit, aims to provide a fertile learning environment for new ideas and enlightened discussions among library and information professionals in the country. Staying relevant in the field is key to further develop one's value as a library and information professional. Hence, this forum primarily aims to motivate librarians to enhance their learning capacity through self-directed instruction, maximizing other learning avenues aside from traditional modes known to them. The lecture specifically intends to: (1) provide an overview on the importance of keeping current with new developments in the field and how to approach them; (2) foster better appreciation of the open learning environment as an avenue for one’s self-education and independent learning; and (3) learn more about open online courses such as MOOCs, blended learning, distance education, webinars, and the like. Registration starts at 12 noon. Registration fees are at Php300 for members, Php350 for non-members and Php200 for students to cover for light snacks and certificate. You may also renew and apply for membership during the forum. Fees are at Php200 for individual and Php500 for institutional members. More information about membership will also be available at the registration/secretariat’s desk. Thank you and we look forward to your full support to PAARL, Inc. Very truly yours, CHRISTINE M. ABRIGO Vice President / Conference Chair Noted by: SHARON MARIA S. ESPOSO-BETAN President
