10:00-11:30 am – Keynote: Turning the mental, physical, and electronic page: Applying reflective practice to change management with Jolene Miller

Description: "We all reflect on our work as librarians, but informal reflection doesn't always result in improvement. Keynote speaker Jolene Miller will introduce us to reflective practice (a more intentional and structured way to reflect on situations at work), with a focus on coping with change. She will talk about the varied ways to engage in reflective practice and guide us through a brief reflective writing experience and reflective conversation. Reflective practice is a transformative strategy for all librarians, regardless of position, type of library, or time in the profession."
