Following a membership-wide survey related to competencies, PLA developed a Professional Development Theory of Change (PD ToC) that describes four high level outcomes: build data driven leaders; build public library advocates oriented toward community needs; build stewards of the public library and its values, and; build networked innovators. A series of incremental steps map back from each outcome area, describing a skill to be mastered. This session will introduce attendees to the PLA PD ToC, place the objectives and interim steps in the context of learning goals, and provide guidance on using the ToC to track individual career development.
