Become a BadgerLearn Pro

BadgerLearn Pro connects you to free continuing education resources at badgerlearnpro.dpi.wi.gov.

Here are some cool things we've added to our collection this month!


The Internship: A Win-Win Situation
  • From advertising for the position to saying goodbye, thoughtful planning of an internship will go a long way to making the experience meaningful for you and your intern.
Making an Artful Ask
  • Marcy Heim talks about making an ask during the Wisconsin Trustee Training Week.
Minding Your Own Business: Library services for businesses and entrepreneurs
  • Libraries are often great at meeting the individual needs of their patrons, both inside the library and out. But, how well are we serving the businesses in our communities? Come join us for a discussion on the different ways libraries can serve the businesses and entrepreneurs who live and work on our communities. Learn and share ideas about making your library the go-to resource for business people in your community.
The Community Connector: Referring Social Services at the Library
  • Every day, patrons enter libraries around the country with questions about health, housing, employment, counseling and other essential human services. Learn how many libraries are now exploring ways to expand their role as connector to community social services.
We want BadgerLearn Pro to be a place where you can easily find current and relevant professional development materials. We hope that BadgerLearn Pro will empower Wisconsin librarians to learn, grow, and try new things!
