Graduate Certificate of Professional Studies in Youth Experience: Application Window Open and Information Sessions

Applications for the second cohort of students in the Graduate Certificate of Professional Studies in Youth Experience (YX) offered by the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland is now open. This innovative, online post-masters certificate gives youth service librarians and school librarians the skills they need to integrate the latest research on learning, technology, community partnerships, and design thinking into their practice with youth ages 0-18. Limited scholarships, generously supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, are available on a competitive basis. To learn more about the certificate program, watch this short video available at youTube or visit the University of Maryland College of Information Studies Youth Experience website.

Additionally, the YX faculty will host online information sessions on December 11th, 2017 at 8 pm EST and January 16th, 2018 at 7pm EST. The information sessions will describe the courses in this certificate and how they will enhance librarians’ skills to incorporate design thinking, participatory design, and connected learning into their programs and services. We will also be providing details on the application process at this time. The sessions will be recorded and the link made available after. If you are interested, please complete the following form to either attend the session or to receive the recording: https://go.umd.edu/YXinterest.
