A Catalyst for Exploring and Expanding Our Teaching Practices
Friday, November 8th, 2019
Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries (VCAL) and
VLA College & Special Libraries Section
Judd Hall at Vermont Technical College
Randolph Center, VT
This fall, the VLA College & Special Libraries Section, in collaboration with the Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries, is excited to present an all-day intensive workshop about the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This workshop supports librarians in engaging more deeply with the Framework and exploring ways that it can enrich your individual teaching practices, as well as your local instruction programs and institutions.
Participants will explore concepts and pedagogical approaches outlined in the Framework and the significance to their own instructional work. Attendees will apply their learning and reflection to create instruction plans for their own local contexts and consider possibilities for growing teaching partnerships.
This workshop will be led by two expert presenters:
- Brittney Johnson, Digital Literacy Program Coordinator, Texas State University
- Lindsay Matts-Benson, Instructional Designer, University of Minnesota
More information about workshop curriculum, presenters, and a sample schedule can be found at: http://www.ala.org/acrl/conferences/roadshows/frameworkroadshow
Registration will open in September. Watch for another email to register soon!
Please note that this workshop is in lieu of our traditional annual fall program, which will resume in 2020. We hope you can take advantage of this incredible professional development opportunity so close to home!
