CPDWL Standing Committee Member Highlight: Ivana Todorovic

“This is How We Do It: One Professional Development Activity in the Lives of Librarians from Around the World” is a new series from the IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section to highlight our standing committee members, who they are and what they do!

In this post, we highlight Ivana Todorovic, CPDWL standing committee member!

Why are you a standing committee member of CPDWL and what are you working on for CPDWL Section at the moment? 
Ivana:My interest in ongoing professional development as a part of my professional activities led me to become involved in the CPDWL section as a standing committee member. Thanks to my position on the CPDWL standing committee, I get the chance to learn a lot about the latest PD initiatives globally and network with dedicated professionals. I participate in the CPD Guidelines working group, which is revising the Guidelines for high-quality CPD in an online setting. I am currently translating the poster that was displayed at WLIC in Dublin into Serbian. I am confident that the fundamental principles of high-quality online learning discussed in the poster will assist library and information professionals in Serbia in developing and broadening their current scope of practice.
What is one advice you have for new librarians interested in getting involved in IFLA or in their library associations for professional development? 
Ivana: I would strongly advise new librarians to join a group that is most compatible with their interests. They should be ready to participate actively in order to expand their horizons and advance their careers.
